Fractal Design Define R3 Black ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case
  • ATX Mid Tower

  • 2 Fans included / 7 Optional

5 out of 5 eggs Solid case - very quiet 04/23/2011

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R3 Black ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case

Pros:

Sturdy construction. Nice overall look - not too flashy. Very quiet. I like the front doors for the fans for easy access in adding/replacing them.

Cons:

Rubber wire guides need to be glued in place or removed. Power button and usb ports panel seems to be somewhat cheap in construction.

Other Thoughts:

Ordered this case for a high end system and was not let down. The sound dampening material really does work wonders on this thing. Two 120 mm case fans, along with my noctua cooler with 2 120mm fans, my corsair PWS and video card with 3 additional fans, and I could barely hear anything with my ear right next to the case.

I used gorilla glue on the backside around the edges of the rubber wire holders but it wouldn't bond to the rubber. Not a big deal but they should make these with a firmer rubber and have some way of attaching them in a sturdier fashion.
