Fractal Design goes RGB and PWM with Define S2 Vision cases

Post by lodestar » Wed Apr 24, 2019 12:18 pm

Fractal Design has introduced two new cases, the Define S2 Vision RGB and the Define S2 Vision Blackout.

Both cases feature four 140mm PWM fans and a PWM fan hub.

The RGB features Fractal's first RGB fans, and an Adjust R1 RGB controller.

The RGB fan is designated as the Prisma AL-14 and has a different frame design from the non-RGB Dynamic X2 GP-14 PWM. Both fans have a PWM range of 500 to 1700 rpm.

The PWM fan hub which in the previous S2 catered for 6 3-pin fans and 3 PWM fans now has 9 positions for PWM fans only.

The Prisma RGB fan is available in both 120mm and 140mm sizes, and there is a 3-pin version as well.

The Dynamic X2 GP-14 PWM fan fan supplied with the S2 Vision Blackout case is also sold separately by Fractal. Note: the web page says the top speed is 2000 rpm but lists 1700 rpm under the specs.

Nice to see the switch to PWM - hopefully, 500rpm is quiet enough.

Also, 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C on front.

$190 list for the Blackout.

The available separately Dynamic X2 GP-14 140mm PWM and Dynamic X2 GP-12 120mm PWM fans will both come in all-Black, all-White (Whiteout) and the traditional Fractal Design Black frame/White blades combo.
