5 out of 5 eggsFirst Fractal Case, but not the last!

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

Pros: Found this case on NewEgg and really checked it out. It's probably the best case I've ever bought in this price range. I bought it to build a box for a guy who is a painter (portraits, high end). He uses it for his photo work and I thought it would look good in his studio which it does. This case is very well laid out. The center HDD rack can be turned for airflow or removed easily. It has sound proofing on every side, good filtering and silent fans. This one came with two 140mm fans and didn't need more although you can install 4 more if you want. Turned all the fans on high and couldn't hear more than some air moving if your close.
Well made and everything was spot on, no misplaced screw holes etc. I didn't use the fan control switch as I didn't install more fans, but it's there. It is a case that belongs in an art studio. It's wide. I installed a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED monster air cooler and there was room for more. Rubber mounted HDD racks, thumb screw for mounting optics and great airflow, many more extras when you get into it. Will buy again.

Cons: Like I said, it's the best case I've bought in it's price range. I didn't find any cons to it. The metal could have been thicker in places, but it already weighs about 27 lbs.

Other Thoughts: For myself I would buy the later model I believe. They have more styles also.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Quiet Case!

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

Pros: Quiet, Quiet, Quiet!!!

My last case was pretty bad. This case has excellent airflow, and great cable management, especially if you get a modular PSU.

I bought one more of the Fractal 140mm fans to put on the front, and I have to really stop and listen to even hear the slightest noise!

I also love that it has such a clean, professional design.

Cons: The fan I bought as an extra was white, and the case fans where black...

Totally my fault. I grabbed the blackout window one because it was $79.99, and didnt notice that it doesn't have any of that awesome white accenting on the case parts/fans.

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

Pros: -Beautiful simple design
-Great layout
-Tons of room for activities :)

Cons: -None yet

Other Thoughts: Could use a guide that tells you what all the screws are that come inside but I found a great video on their website that showed me the whole case.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid tower for any file server

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

Pros: I bought one of these for my file server a few years back and fell in love with it.
-Great cable management
-Anti-vibration grommets for each hard drive
-Removable hard drive tays
-Solid built
-Quite

Cons: Cost? but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I purchased one of these for my file server after a fair amount of research online, and I'm happy to say it works great.
When I built the computer for my surveillance system I went with another Fractal R4 (w/o the window this time). Bit overkill for that computer, but its a great case.
So when it came time to rebuilt my home media server, and I found my favorite file server tower on sale, I couldn't say no.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

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

Pros: This case is pretty great, the fans are extremely quiet and keeps it very cold. The only noise you can hear is the air getting blown out of the vents by the fans. It's a very attractive case, and isn't too big to fit in most areas if you're short on space. Would recommend this case to anyone looking to build nothing too over-the-top, works great with my micro ATX board.

Cons: The main, and probably only issue I have with this case is the openings for wires routing behind the motherboard, these were meant to keep the inside more visually appealing and just general cord management, and in build video's it works great for ATX boards. However, my micro ATX board is just barely too far from them and I'm unable to route most of the board power cables from the PSU around the back and forced to run them in front of the board.

5 out of 5 eggsStandard for cases

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

Pros: Air flow
Cable management
Room
etc etc

Cons: The two fans it comes with are awesome. I really think at this price they should include 3. I purchased another one, Fractal of course, and it's quiet and super cool, but at the price I think there should be 3. Just my opinion and being a bit picky.

Other Thoughts: Be sides the packing I can't find much wrong with the case. The top of the case is caved in a bit and can be pushed up, but I didn't want to send it back and wait. I can't blame anyone but FedEx, or the packaging ( I'll go with FedEx). Never the less it's a great case. I don't have fans on the top, but if I never need too I hope it isn't a problem.
