As the name implies, Define Mini is the smaller sibling of the acclaimed and award winning Define R2/R3 case. Being a Micro ATX version of Define R2/R3, it offers a number of interesting functions with a very stylish appearance. It's a case focused on low noise level, without neglecting other important features such as cooling, expandability and ease of use. The Define Mini excels in including a lot of features in a small size!
The patent pending feature ModuVent™, in which you can choose whether to have fan slots in side and top panels open or not, makes the case appealing for users seeking optimal silence, as well as the performance hungry ones.
The sleek black interior is matched with pre-fitted, dense noise absorbing material on the side panels, efficiently absorbing noise and vibrations. You can fit an astonishing total of six(!) hard drives into this case, using the user friendly HDD-trays. All painted in a nice white color and using black silicone mounts. PSU is mounted in the bottom of the case, with a convenient pull-out filter beneath it.

I recently bought this case for a new build for one of my parents. Earlier in the year I had bought the ATX-sized midtower on special and fell in love with the looks. I still haven't used that case in a build yet, but I knew from reviews and having one in my posession that it was a look I wanted for my mom's next PC.
I initially installed Noctua D14 then I wanted to change it with CM Hyper Evo. Problem was that CPU cut out was not wide enough and I had to take out motherboard to change it. With removable HDD cage, I was able to install Sapphire 7970 which was apparently longer than Powercolor and XFX 7970...
This is an amazing case. I switched from a 650d to this and I couldn't be happier. The case can easily be modded for custom water cooling. It has amazing build quality for the price. Can't beat it anywhere else. Only thing this case is missing is a window.
I bought this to use as a file server. Inside of it is a standard Pentium D 775 and it keeps it cool. The hard drive mounts are great and the grommets for cable management are perfect, they don't fall out for me like others have said. I will be buying a second for a build for my sister.
I really wanted the Silverstone TJ08-E. They didnt have it in stock and I really didnt want to wait on backorder. I took a chance on this case, and must say I am blown away. The price is right, the quality is exceptional at that price point. If you are on the fence, dont be, just get the case. It is worth evey penny I spent.
This is my third Fractal case and all three have been a pleasure to work with. My home server is the larger one with 8 drive bays. The reason I bought this was because it's one of the most silent cases on the market. Put the covers on and you may be confused if it's on or not. Great purchase and would recommend it to others.
Using this as my server (http://distilleryimage3.instagram.com/cb6dd7aa1f9c11e180c9123138016265_7.jpg) and 24/7 build. Love the sleekness of it, easy to hide somewhere. Like the simplicity, but it comes with lots of features as well. Probably the best case under 100 bucks that I have used.
