Fractal Design's Define XL Case is Tougher Than a Shotgun

You either have to be really pissed off or a little bit nuts to shoot your computer case with a 12-gauge shotgun. Alternately, you could work for Fractal Design, a Swedish case and power supply maker that was dead set on proving its Define XL case isn't just great at absorbing noise, it can also swallow a shotgun blast to the chest, up to 10 times.

It's one of those things you have to see to appreciate, so carve yourself out five minutes of free time and check out the embedded video below:

Well played, Fractal Design. And to reiterate the warning at the beginning of the video, please don't try this at home, not unless you're willing to record the carnage (and risk injuring yourself and/or your computer case and parts).

So they use tough steel on their cases. That's cool I guess.

My shotgun is a Winchester defender and shoots single slugs that ~might~ have had another result.

Fractal Design does make a lot of awesome gear. What I've laid eyes on is all quality built.

That is impressive proof of quality,, Sure like the clean design of the Fractal chassis too. All the guys I know that have the Define R3 chassis just luvs it !

As someone who's tried Windows 8, I think this is a good investment.
