5 out of 5 eggsgreat case!

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

Pros: Beautiful case, spacious, and very quiet!

Cons: While the corsair h100 fits on top of the case I had a bit of trouble installing it because of a motherboard power connector, not a big issue, but the cause could have used more room on the top, not knocking an egg off though.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

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

Pros: Very pretty! I rotated the bottom drive bay to increase airflow and better cable management, not sure if you are supposed to be able to do it but I did and it worked! Installed a 120mm rad in the top front fan bay.

My board and liquid cooler has red LEDs on them and it looks very slick through the tinted window. Not disappointed.

Cons: Only one LED light for power and standby, I would like a separate standby light. I will probably modify my own LED in there in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsSeriously Impressive

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

Pros: This case is a behemoth. There is so much room - so many drive bays! The fans included do a fantastic job at keeping my system cool. I open the front panel door, which is solid, when I am doing high intensity gaming, but I don't think that you would really have to do that. Everything about this case is well made - the fan controller, the panels, the removable 5" drive covers, the removable dust covers, the modu-vents in the top, the PCI slot covers, the cable management - this has it all. There is enough room to mount the largest air cooling options, and I am fairly confident you could mount a 280mm radiator on the top for watercooling. USB ports are good quality. Audio ports are good quality. Power button is sturdy. And did I mention this thing looks fantastic?! The window is just dark enough that I cannot make out components during the day, but still allows for the small amounts of lighting on my motherboard to be highlighted. I think you could do some really nice things with some LED lights in this case, and I plan on doing that. The darkness of the window is just enough to cut down on direct glare. Feet are solid and nice. Overall, I don't ever see myself owning another case. This one has it all, is going to last for decades longer than the components inside, and was well worth the uptick in price compared to lower cost options.

Cons: The screws in the PCI covers were pretty tight. I had to be very careful removing them the first time as to not twist the cover itself.

Other Thoughts: Just buy it. Cheaper than the R4 standard with all the features. You pay more than a Rosewill or Thermaltake, but it's well, well worth it in build quality.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent quality, extremely silent

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

Pros: This comes with everything you need to setup your system even with SSD slots in the rear of the motherboard tray. Highly configurable, and ultra-quiet. I came from flashy cases from Antec and Corsair and this case is amazing, the quality is years beyond the manufacturing the other companies ever produced. It is silent, fits everything and has everything you need.

Cons: Nothing, this best case I have ever owned .. Reviews were finally accurate ..

Other Thoughts: Got this on sale, but definitely worth the regular price as well. Excellent quality

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice case

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

Pros: -Well-built. Steel construction, with soundproofing on the panels. Painted interior. No sharp edges.
-Excellent cable management. Probably the best I've ever seen.
-Good case fans. They're nice and quiet.
-Fan filters for the bottom and front intake fans.
-Very nice door, magnetic latch, brushed finish.
-Looks very sleek, tinted window is really nice with led parts.
-Punchouts are instead screw outs, so you can easily replace them if you take out a part.
-Front fan filter easily accessible (push in on top-left and top-right corners to eject the cover)
-12v 7v 5v switch on the front panel.
-Nice white led power light, not too bright.
-very spacious

Cons: -The only con I can think of is the lack of documentation. There's literally a paragraph in english so a lot of the features might get lost (as you can see here in reviews complaining about the front cover not being removable).
-didn't notice the SSD installation option on the backside until afterwards, would require removing the motherboard to use now.
Personally I'd rather use the drive cage, though.

Other Thoughts: Be careful with the front door. I haven't had any issues, but other reviews mentioned it, and several times I caught myself almost lifting it by the bottom of the door when it's shut.

Overall a pleasure to build in, it was on a substantial sale when I got it, so I'm extremely pleased with it.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the money

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

Pros: Spacious, The fact that the middle hard drive bays can be removed for more room for some of the larger graphics cards is a huge bonus. Great arrangement for cable management.
Mostly sturdy.

Cons: The front face of the tower unsnaps pretty easily. This is a con because it can make moving the tower kind of hairy.

Other Thoughts: Perfect tower if it wasn't for the front face issues.
