Fractal Design have upgraded their Define lineup with the Define R6 USB-C as well as offering accessories to modify it to meet your needs.
The EATX case can hold a CPU cooler of up to 185mm in height and offers a wide variety of cooling options. Depending on how you configure the case, the front can handle up to three 120mm or two 140mm fans or a radiator of up to 280mm. The top can be configured to hold up to three 120mm or 140mm fans, or a 420mm radiator if your motherboard doesn't impinge on it. The rear can fit a single 120mm fan or radiator, or a single 140mm fan while the bottom can support a pair of 120mm or 140mm fans or a 280mm rad.
You can also chose between a solid metal side panel or a tempered glass one as well as drive bracket upgrade kits which will add support for an additional pair of HDDs or SSDs depending on which you order.
The basic model will set you back $140 or $160 with tempered glass, if you change your mind later on a glass side panel will cost you $30. The drive brackets are $10 regardless of the type of drive they will be holding and you can pick it up now.
