4 out of 5 eggsGreat case after 3 years use- 1 minor issue

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: -Best/easiest case to work with out of any brand
-plenty of screws, cable ties, etc.
-great dust management
-sound dampening design

Cons: - front 140mm fan started making a moderate oscillating noise after 2.5 years. (why i took off 1 egg)

Other Thoughts: I have recommended to friends who have purchased and liked (wheres my commission fractal?) ;) For the price I am a little disappointed I had to buy a new fan. I also recently purchased a Define R5 for a new build

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet as it kept.

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: It was good enough to buy two-years ago, and it still is today. Un-boxed it three months back and it was worth the wait. Some may walk a mile for a Camel, and I had no trouble walking two-years back for Fractal.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: The front, and rear, 140 mm case fans keep my case at 30c in a 67f room. There is fan speed control for the two-case fans, and a wire connection for one more. The low voltage setting produces a whisper while still being polite for up to two-steps faster. On Youtube, Linus choose this case for his $2,000 ultimate build. Loved the way it handled cable management, and my choice became solid!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case and Customer Support

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: -The case was big, bigger than expected. Installed a Corsair 100iGTX (would not recommend installing a water cooler any bigger)
-Came with (2) 140mm Fans
-More than enough space for several hard drives
-Great airflow
-Fractal sent me an entire new side panel to replace my scratched one. Received it the same week. Contacted them Monday and received the replacement Friday morning, fantastic company.

Cons: -I have almost all my power cords from my PSU going through the bottom wire feeding hole and it is almost pulling the rubber wire clasp out of the hole.
-Not enough space to install a 140mm water cooler but a 120 is fine.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend buying the Define R5 because it has almost no improvements off of this case.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's good

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Case is designed well with excellent cable management options. The soundproof padding works and included fans are very quiet. Screens on the intakes keep the dust out. Plenty of options for customizing airflow and adding fans, coolers, water pumps, hard drives, optical drives, etc. The window is very cool I love being able to shine a flashlight in there and look around without taking it apart.

Cons: Blue LED was bright and annoying, especially in sleep mode which would ironically keep me awake at night.. so i unplugged it from the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Once I got rid of my excessively noisy GPU and radiator fan this case became really quiet. Also the dimensions are gigantic, which is good in a lot of ways, but after moving around several times I'm considering replacing it with something more compact.

5 out of 5 eggsStop thinking and buy! Amazing!

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: - Looks amazing
- Sturdy Construction
- Easy to set up
- Fan Speed Selector
- Roomy
- Stays cool
- Supports Liquid Cooling
- Excellent fan mounting areas
- Cable Management
- Lots of Screws
- Easy to remove drive bays
- Dust Filters are perfect for cleaning
- Easy to mount/change fan configuration

Cons: - I have 4 140mm fans on the case, 2 in front where the filter is, and 2 on the top left corner and have the intake running faster than exhaust. Mounting a fan on the top of the case requires you to remove a panel, which I was going to use to plug the bottom hole near where the PSU is mounted, but it wouldn't screw on with my Corsair RM850i. It still sits there fine and plugs the hole, and not enough to remove an egg, but still... All I needed was 2cm more space xD

- SSD mounting behind motherboard isn't as easy as you would think. I am just going to Velcro tape it to the bottom of the case and remove the bottom drive tray also.

- The rightmost 3 offset screw holes were too far away from my motherboard to use, but not sure if that is the case's fault.

Other Thoughts: Overall very satisfied, would recommend to anyone. Don't hesitate to pick this one up :)

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Gorgeous case. Love the solid black. Silent. Don't hear a thing unless I turn my R9 390's fans to 100%

Cons: Heavy as hell. Not really a bad thing. Just a pain to move at times.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: This case is awesome plenty of room for hard drives. Good cable management. Nice clear open window and very very quiet. I built this for a work computer at my new job and just love the slick design of the case. I have not installed all the fans yet as I don't need to. Case stays cool with just the three fans.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsTwo Year Review

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: ~ Quality
~ Layout
~ Filtration
~ Quiet
~ Customer Service

Cons: None.....Literally none

Other Thoughts: I have owned this case for nearly two years. It houses my own PC, which is used for hours every day. The quality of design and construction is top notch. It is dead quiet, filter dust and hair better than any case I have owned, and it is super easy to clean the fan filter inside the front panel. To top it off, I had an initial problem with the power switch when I first received the case. I called FD on a Saturday morning. A guy working in the warehouse answered the phone, knew exactly what to do, and sent me a replacement part no questions asked, and no hassle. I had the part in a couple days with a nice little note with tips on installation. Best case I have owned and the best customer service experience. Phenomenal!
