Absolute proper build quality 2/1/2020 2:11:55 AM

Pros: Not sure where to begin. Tons of space for anything and everything.
Absolute silence when using quiet fans, the hdd led is the only way to tell it's on.
Modular drive bays can be configured in any way you could imagine.
FAN FILTERS! Super easy to set up totally filtered positive air pressure, and the filters are insanely easy to remove and clean, all with front access.
Very good front airflow even when front door is closed.

Cons: The only cons I can think of are justified. Fixing them would create problems elsewhere. If you have humungous parts, maybe look at the R6, it's bigger.
Also, complete lack of documentation. I don't need these extra header cables, but what are they?!

Overall Review: Extremely good case, very quiet, excellent filtered airflow, great cable management options, lots of space

A ittle expensive, but a great case 1/9/2020 2:24:33 PM

Pros: Solid and well built. Runs very cool and quiet. Has provision for adding multiple extra fans, though I didn't find this necessary. Conveniently-accessible dust filters. Very roomy inside and a pleasure to build with -- probably the easiest build I've ever done. Plenty of accommodations for cable routing with built-in Velcro tiedowns in several places and well-grommeted passthroughs between the left and right side in all the right places.

Cons: It's big and it's heavy. Make sure you have space to accommodate it. It's expensive (but IMO worth every penny). You may need SATA power cable extensions depending on where you put your drives (I was just barely able to stretch the cables that came with my PSU far enough to reach my two ODDs and two HDDs). Doesn't come with a speaker for BIOS beep codes.

Overall Review: I love this case. Pricey but worth it. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Perfect Case for My New Build 12/15/2019 8:03:48 PM

Pros: Well built
Lots of Room
Very Quiet
Lots of spots to place fans

Cons: No USB-C port on the front

Overall Review: I purchased this case for the build of my new Video Editing System. One of the features that I really needed were locations for external drives (I use two Blu-Ray drives to produces disks for client work). There are not too many cases out there that still have room for external drives. Yes, I could use external Blu-Ray drives but that just adds to the clutter.

The case is easy to work, is solidly built and very quiet. There are two included fans, which currently are sufficient for my needs, but there is plenty of locations to add additional fans or water cooling.

Two complaints: it would be nice to have a USB-C port on the front panel in addition to the USB2 and USB3 ports. Also, the screws that attach the right side panel (where the 2.5" SSD mountings are) are not easy to remove/attach compared to the left side panel.

Sorry to hear you were having issues with the power button on your Define R5. You definitely shouldn’t need a soldering iron handy to power on your system reliably. If you haven't already, please contact us at your earliest convenience via support.fractal-design.com or by calling 855-446-3722.

Prefer this over R6 4/14/2019 6:39:46 PM

Pros: Sturdy; silent; customizable.

Cons: No cons, but I would have liked one more fan included in the front.

Overall Review: I love the simple design without logos or patterns. I removed the HDD and ODD cages for more room, which is why I prefer this over the R6 model: the R6 has a PSU shroud that restricts space. Overall, a very satisfying case.
