This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
Very solid construction
Covers for unwanted fan spaces if desired
Metal HDD/SDD mounting hardware
Great paint job
Easy to clean the included filters
Lots of space for cable management behind the mobo tray
Great amount of space for air and watercooling. You can easily put 2 rads in this case, and even a third one if you wanted along with the reservoirs.
Great looking case overall.
Support for large graphic cards
While not really a con at all, there's lots of rivets and few screws holding it together. Means more drilling from me to take it apart for paint and modification.
The doors are a bit hard to put back on, since you have to fit the door into slots not only the top, but the bottom as well. The doors warped a little bit from my rough handling, but they're not flimsy at all, they're heavy and solid.
The back of the MOBO tray isn't smooth. This shouldn't matter to 99% of you, but it will be a modification I'll be needing to make since I'll be adding on a window to the back to show off my sleeved cables.
Not a huge fan of the front panel being swing open, but I'm removing it anyways so no big deal.
This is a case worth the money you spend. I own 3 good cases, and from least favorite to most favorite :
Coolermaster Storm Sniper
Fractal Design Define R4
The R4 is an awesome case, and is extremely easy to modify from what I see. It's my current favorite ATX mid tower case, beats the TJ07 imo.
