Fractal Design Vector RS Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

Fractal Design Vector RS Review  


Here at OC3D towers, having recently reviewed the Define S2 Vision, our collective jaws have only just recovered from hitting the floor.  On opening up the latest offering from Fractal in the shape of the Vector RS it's fair to say we felt the beginnings of yet another downward mandibular excursion.  My God, this case is pretty; really pretty. Yes, pretty is important in the world of PC enclosures, but it also needs to perform.  From a quick look at the Tech Spec below, it the Fractal Vector RS appears to have what it takes.
