I would be very careful that you know what you're getting with this case. The Define S is a strange bird. It has no front door and no 5.25" drive bays, so you can't mount an internal optical drive. Also, it has no hard drive bays, instead opting for three flush hard drive mounts on the right side of the case.

I'm really not sure what the intended use is for this case. It's a large, full-sized ATX case, so I just don't get the lack of storage features. Not everyone needs an optical drive, and not everyone needs all the drive bays that the Define R5 offers, so I can only guess that it's intended to be able to fit long video cards for gaming, at a lower price point. But this case is only about $10-15 cheaper than the R5.

this case is only really marketed toward water cooled systems. it offers plenty of space for radiators and the lack of drive mounts makes it easier to mount reservoirs and pumps but is cheaper than most water cooling based cases.

I noticed on pcpartpicker.com the other day that this case was being sold at NCIX for $70. The next day it was back to $80. Seems they're jimmying the price on this thing quite a lot this week.
