Fractal Design Define R4 Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 140mm Fans all around
Dust filters
Silent design
Sleek front panel look
4 USB ports (2 USB 3.0) on top
Plenty of storage space
Easy expansion options such as watercooling
VERY high quality build
Magnetic latches for front panel

Cons: Price
Only 2 DVD drive slots

Other Thoughts: This case is an awesome case. I got it on sale and it was money well spent. It looks amazing and has a lot of great features. I mainly bought this for the looks and for the expansion options. I shouldn't need another case ever again. I keep this on a long carpet at all times and after having it for about 6 months there isn't a spec of dust on the inside. The dust filters are doing their job and will probably need to be cleaned about once a year. They are easily removable. I added another 140mm fan to the front and there are placement options for 3 more. The front door feels very solid. The entire case is extremely well built with all parts painted. I will definitely be buying another Fractal Design case for any future builds I decide to do. Keep up the good job Fractal!

Rosewill Hive-750, Hive Series 750W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Semi modular
Lots of power
Lots of cables

Cons: Small amount of coil whine
Cables not sleeved (not expected at this price range anyway though)

Other Thoughts: Semi modular power supplies are really the way to go. This power supply has excellent cable management and the semi modular aspect of it lowers the cost. This unit does produce a small amount of coil whine but nothing too noticeable or worthy of taking an egg off for. It came with more than enough cables for my basic build (SSD, HDD, DVD, 3 fans, one GPU) My build doesn't require the power output of this unit but I might add a GPU later on. So far this is a great power supply.

This review is from: ASUS B85M-G LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Cheap
