Fractal Design might not be the best-known case maker in the entire world, but it definitely has some nice and tough toys, one of which starred its own video.
This isn't just any video though. It involves things being shot to smithereens, or unsuccessful attempts to achieve this outcome at least.
Long story short, the person in the video shoots the Define XL case with a 12-gauge shotgun. This would be crazy enough on its own, but there is more.
Apparently, the case has no trouble withstanding the blast. The black paint is carved off, sure enough, but the side panel doesn't suffer much beyond that, except some warping.
Keep in mind that the man didn't shoot it just once or twice. That shotgun was unloaded ten times into that poor, defenseless side panel.
We have the sneaking suspicion that, had said panel been properly affixed and screwed to the rest of the case, it would have warped even less.
And now we get to the funny part: physical toughness isn't the asset that the product page dwells the most on.
As seen right here, the Define XL was built for silent operation, so it possesses various perks that absorb noise or prevent it from reaching outside the chassis.
The ModuVent feature, for one, is a cover with noise absorbing material, mounted in the side panel fan hole. The owner can remove it when cooling is more important than silence but keep it on the rest of the time.
The rest of the case is fitted with dense noise absorbing bitumen material, covered with a soft foam texture. Most noise produced by computer parts and fans is nullified by it, although it helps that HDD mounting is done with silicone grommets.
