The Fractal Design Define XL USB 3.0 Black Pearl has a the E-ATX form factor. Extended ATX is a slightly deeper version of the ATX standard which is designed to provide all the advantages of ATX but with slightly more room. Using the E-ATX standard, the case can house motherboards and power supplies with form factors ATX, E-ATX and Micro-ATX. The dimensions of the case itself (LxWxH) are 561mm x 232mm x 560mm.

The Fractal Design Define XL USB 3.0 Black Pearl has eight expansion slots, so there is plenty of room for extra components, which may be a deciding factor when planning on the longevity and build type of a PC system. The case has four 5.25" drive bays, which is enough to house an optical drive and a couple of hard drives, while still having space for plenty more HDDs with the nine 3.5" drive bays that are also available. You can even install an SSD or laptop-sized HDD using one of the nine 2.5" drive bays.

Made primarily of Aluminium, the Fractal Design Define XL USB 3.0 Black Pearl is built to be strong, lightweight, and well-ventilated. This often comes at a price premium, but some see the benefits to be completely worth it. Whatever your case's material, it is important to keep a consistent airflow so that heat doesn't build up inside. It is therefore advised that you make use of the available built-in case fans and fan installation sections.
