Fractal Design Define R4 Titanium Grey Silent ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs This case is amazing! 01/05/2013

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Titanium Grey Silent ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Very nice mid-tower case. The design is very minimalist, which I like a lot. The level of fit and finish of this case is usually reserved for much more expensive examples. They use a fairly heavy gauge steel which makes it feel very solid. The obvious flip side of that is the case is also fairly heavy. It has plenty of rubber-grommetted ports for cable routing or water cooling. I'm running a 55W CPU and I had to strain to hear any fan noise, probably due to sound dampening foam they have covering every interior surface. I'm using the stock fans, but they give you plenty of options for aftermarket fans as well. All intakes have removable dust filters. Be careful when picking the case up, there's a filter just below the power supply that you can tear if you pick it up the wrong way.

Cons: It's a little wider than other mid-tower ATX cases. It doesn't bother me at all, but it's kinda hard to see it in the photos.

Other Thoughts: I had never heard of Fractal cases until very recently, but I'm very happy with my purchase. Buy them soon before they realize they can charge more for these cases!

Pros: Plenty of oomph for a 35W processor. Perfect for an HTPC that you want to occasionally do other things with, like play some older or less hardware hungry games.

Scored an 11.3 on Fritz chess benchmark, which is good for a dual-core processor, let alone a 35w dual-core.

Cons: I can't comment on the built-in graphics since I'm using a discrete graphics card, but I'm replacing my previous HTPC (A Zotac Zbox ID82) with this BECAUSE of the problems I had with the Intel HD3000 graphics chip. Obviously, I'm not docking any eggs, but if you're considering using the built-in graphics, just make sure you do your research first.

Other Thoughts: Powerful, cool, quiet. Not the best price, but I guess that's the trade-off. Very happy with it overall.

ASUS RT-N16 Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps DD-WRT Open Source support with USB Storage, Printer And Media Server

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Awesome router, writing this review to help people choose the right DD-WRT firmware.

Cons: Doesn't ship with DD-WRT :)

Other Thoughts: If you're hoping the use DD-WRT with this router, don't use the latest firmware. As of 9/17/2011, you should use the v14929 revision until they can resolve some problems with wireless speeds, services, etc
