5 out of 5 eggsVery good case

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

Pros: Love this case. It's a bit on the heavy side, but definitely sturdy. The noise-dampening is really good, my case stays relatively quiet, lots of room, cable management. Sleek and minimalistic design.

Cons: None, case is great.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the money, and would recommend to anybody.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

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

Pros: Sturdy, great cable management, heavy duty wiring, good air flow

Cons: It's on the heavy side. But that's a trade off for being as sturdy as it is.

Other Thoughts: This was my first build. I initially tried to save some money on the case but found that didn't work so well. I bought this as a replacement and was much happier with it.

I loved how much space it had for cable management. The built in wiring was a nice gauge and not too thin and fragile. The case is very heavy duty and din't flex.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and awesome

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

Pros: This case is awesome. Very functional, very quiet. You lose a little of the quietness with the side window I think, but that's no big deal, cause I like looking at my mobo. The space in this thing is perfect. I love the front door for the optical drives. I just covered it in stickers. So yeah great case.

Cons: None for me, its functions as advertised. and the USB slots have never failed me in over a year.

5 out of 5 eggsMi favorito

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

Pros: A well thought out design. There is more than ample room for SLI, Cord Management, Storage/RAID, Cooling/Airflow

Stock fans, filters and speed controls are nice.

It's classy, not too flashy. Big but not too big.

Sturdy steel materials. Even plastic parts are strong.

Cons: There is nothing bad about this case.

Other Thoughts: I got it for about $65 on sale. There is no reason you should have to pay more than $100 for a case. Everything you need is right here.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

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

Pros: Large, strudy, window, removable HD cage, plenty of space for cable management, not going to get knocked over, keeps the noise level down, really nice to build into.

Cons: the door opens to the left so when it sits on my right its inconvenient... but I rarely have to open the door. Not really a "con" for me, but it may be for other ppl who burn cds often.

The white in the computer was not what I was looking for, but I went out and bought about $10 in painting supplies and painted the inside of my case (the white parts) black so it would match my color scheme. It looks amazing now.

Other Thoughts: I cant believe I haven't reviewed this item yet. This is my first case and I bought it with the thought of having it for a long long time. After building in this and rebuilding in it, I have no doubt I have chosen the right case for me.

With the removable HD cage you dont have to worry about having a long card. In fact, if you dont want to take out the HD cage and simply just turn it so the open side is face towards the front and back of the case it allows for better air flow and more room for long GPUs.

You should note that this case is HEAVY. No joke, but for me thats a good thing, I dont want some flimsy plastic case that vibrates when Im putting my components underload. Nor do I want a case that is so light that if I bang my knee against my desk it will shake it off balance.

BUY! Is the underlining message here folks

5 out of 5 eggsCool &Quiet

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

Pros: - good placement of cable routing holes
- dust filters for all inlet fans
- removable hdd cages and mounting positions for two ssd's behind the motherboard though I may not use them
- good overall layout and design
- sleeves on all cables
- quality construction

Cons: - only two external 5.25" bays, one is my optical drive and the other is for cards & additional usb's, would've liked one more for temp/fan controls
- very happy with the layout and price ($79.00 on sale) so nothing I'd deduct an egg for

Other Thoughts: The venting for the front fans worried me a little bit but temps have been fine, added one more of their fans up front for a total of three

Coming from an Antec 900, i like the simple exterior

5 out of 5 eggsFractal Design - Swedish for AMAZING!

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

Pros: I love the design of this case simple and elegant. It is also fairly easy to work with, even though I have these ogre like hangs with fingers of butter. 3 way fan controller, silent design, quality construction aluminium(minus the cons part of course), and great air flow.

Cons: most of the standard issues have been noted all minor ones at that and have been improved in the define r5. I was however not expecting the flimsy metal at the 2 140mm fan mounting locations at the top and the flimsy metal athe the 120/140mm mounting location at the bottom. Also be wary of PSU length as it can cut you off from mounting a bottom intake fan.

Other Thoughts: Yes I know I have some minor issues with this case, but the overall quality is fantastic. Using all 6 fan slots at full speed it's still a fairly silent case. Even though it has it's downs it's still just to beautiful to me to pass up :)

1 out of 5 eggsHDD vibration really bad =(

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

Pros: Silent Case, a lot of room for cable management, case looks great

Cons: The case would be 5 starts for me but I put my computer together and it;s silent but it emits a vibration that you can feel it in the entire desk , so i started to listen and see where the vibration is coming from and it's from the bottom hard drive cage my HD is making it vibrate , I remounted the hard drive to different slots and using the provided rubber mounts and screws and nada , I unplug the hard drive so it doesn't spin and the vibration is gone , so I'm 100% sure is my hard drive but no matter where I mount the hard drive the vibration is felt.

I googed this problem and voila! there are other several threads having the same problem with the hdd vibration with this case, this isn't good if many are reporting the same thing, I'm disappointed at Fractal if they didn't do any Q&A with different hard drive speeds because this day of age it should not be experiencing this problem. My old antec 900 didn't had any issues with the same hard drive for example.

I want to know if Fractal has a solution to this or if anyone has any advice before requesting a RMA from newegg.

thanks
