The Define R4 is the latest in the Define series of silent computer cases. Building on the award-winning foundation of the Define R3, the R4 retains minimalistic yet elegant styling with extraordinary performance, noise reduction features, premium build quality and unparalleled value in this price range while adding a suite of innovative new features.

No longer are you forced to choose between silence and support for liquid cooling, the Define R4 offers both. Top fan positions now allow slim 240 radiators to be mounted internally and select slim radiators can also be mounted in the front fan holder. An integrated fan controller is easily accessible behind the front panel, putting fan control at your fingertips. Cable management and intelligent layout are taken to new levels with the option of mounting up to two 2.5in, SSDs on the reverse side of the motherboard tray, effectively mitigating visible cable clutter. When it comes to cable routing, the Define R4 has it covered. Over one full inch of cable routing space behind the motherboard plate has been achieved by widening the case by just 8mm.

This mid-tower case is a great choice for everything from gaming enthusiast systems to silent home theater and corporate applications. The R4 comes pre-fitted with dense noise absorbing bitumen material on the front, top and side panels. The exclusive ModuVent TM System provides three panels which also have noise-absorbing material; these panels can be removed to expose three air vents for additional fans for high air flow applications. Rubber padding on the case feet, anti-vibration pads for the power supply and HDDs also help reduce noise.

Configuration flexibility is enhanced thanks to two hard drive cages (featuring steel drive trays with black silicone mounting grommets) that support a total of eight 3.5in. HDDs or 2.5in. SSDs. The top five-bay cage is easily rotatable and removable; removing the top cage allows support for graphics cards up to 470mm in length. The bottom three-bay cage is mounted to the chassis by screws instead of rivets, allowing you to easily remove both drive cages for complete flexibility. The spacious sleek black interior can support CPU coolers up to 170mm high. If cooling becomes more of a priority, this system can support up to seven fans with removable, washable filters to provide airflow from five sides of the case. The case also includes cable routing cutouts with improved rubber grommets to ensure greater fit and retention. The bottom of the case has a filter over the power supply and 120/140mm intake fan vent which can be easily removed for cleaning.

  • newegg Fully Transparent Side Panel Window The acrylic window side panel features the same clean, Scandinavian design as the case itself, and has a completely flat outer surface without any plastic bezel or rivets, allowing you to display your setup in style.
  • newegg Optimized for Noise Reduction Pre-fitted with dense noise-absorbing material, the R4 also features ModuVent panels which prevent noise from escaping unused fan vents when silence is required. If cooling becomes more of a priority than noise reduction, the ModuVent panels can be removed to expose additional air vents for optional fans.
  • newegg Support for Liquid Cooling You no longer have to make the choice between liquid cooling and silence, the R4 offers both. Top fan positions now allow slim 240mm radiators to be mounted. Select slim radiators can be mounted in the front fan holder (requires the bottom HDD cage to change position).
  • newegg Innovative SSD Mounting Options Hide those drives! Take cable management and interior cleanliness to a whole new level. Mount up to two 2.5in, SSDs out of sight on the back side of the motherboard tray.
  • newegg Integrated Fan Controller Fan control at your fingertips. The integrated fan controller is easily accessible behind the front panel and manages up to three fans, allowing you to tailor the fan speed to your needs.
  • newegg Advanced Cable Management Over 1in. of space behind the motherboard plate means cables can be conveniently routed through five rubber grommets into a generous compartment behind the motherboard to reduce cable clutter and improve airflow.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks awesome, especially with LEDs.This case is very sleek and stylish in every available color. It really is the Mercedes case

Cons: Unfortunately, I had a little bit of difficulty mounting H100i. I ended up front-mounting it after moving the bottom drive cage slightly. Thankfully, Fractal has a short video informing you how easy it actually is to front mount. And that keeps me from docking an egg... along with how great the case is.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent- best bang for the buck

Pros: -Lots of room
-SSD Back Mounts
-Filters front and bottom
-Good Noise Reduction
-Good price on sale

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: This case was excellent, it came with very sturdy cables. Plent of room for cable management although I ran sleeved cables on mine, the back was pretty tight. It would also help if they indicated in bigger letters if you want to use the SSD mounts on the back to make sure to mount it first before the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsSweetness

Pros: Cable management space behind
Air filters
sound deadening material/super quiet
very easy to use drive bays & removable mid section for longer video cards/air flow
sexy clean, sleek and minimalist look
whole lot of space

Cons: Only thing I can think of, and this is not a huge deal, is the white accents. It's not a big deal really but i figured I should write something in this section. x

Other Thoughts: From the tiny rubber grommets that sit under the psu/drives and keep them quiet to the extra thick padding on the side covers that weigh it down, yet dampen the noise. I love everything about this. *sigh* so fine!

4 out of 5 eggsHard drive cooling a joke

Pros: Looks modular and the cable management is pretty slick. looks slick.

Cons: hard drive filling front bay WILL cause overheating even with BOTH 140MM fans blowing at full 12 volts, what is up with that? Too much restriction, looks cool but it runs so hot that stablebit throws errors saying the drive are too hot - under normal day to day use. Oh yeah, will not accomodate big drives without the top cage bumpers springing out. Also, drive vibration grommets can't hold a candle to antex stock grommets that are 2x as thick and more squishy.

Other Thoughts: upgrades with extra exhaust, spot cooler on NB heatsink, two cougar 140mm fans on hard drive running at MAX speed - still the cages are designed so poortly you drives overheat.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent

Pros: This thing is great!
Can't hear it running at all when switched to medium fan setting. The temperatures are all lower then my old case when idle and when torture testing.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For me, it is a little pricy for a case, but after using it, it is worth the cost.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

Pros: Construction
Size
Design/Looks
Weight

Cons: Might be too heavy for some people

Other Thoughts: Very well built case. Study and classic looking without looking dated. Very clean design. This is a huge case, hard to believe it is a mid-tower. Think you could fit about two standard Dell machines in this one. Sturdy and heavy, don't buy this if you plan to move your computer frequently.

3 out of 5 eggsA Good Case With Quality Control Issues

Pros: -Hefty and solid case
-Nice SSD mounting options
-Looks nice
-Good number of bays

Cons: -Front audio jack broke within the first day of using it and very mild use
-USB 3.0 connector is defective and one of the pin holes is blocked up
-Customer support is not very good

Other Thoughts: This case would be 5 stars if they resolved their quality control issues, or at least offered adequate customer support to resolve these problems.

3 out of 5 eggsNice case, but some issues

Pros: Very big case,

Cons: No HDD led - important for new builds,

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: very well built case with lots of cable room in back of mb,,, very clean look and QUIET

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: the fans in this case are 3 pin so they will work on a 4 pin asus z97 board but without the board controlling them.. the fan control switch works well though and has not caused any issues at all.
