Fractal Design Define R5 Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Really impressed with this case! 02/05/2016

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R5 Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case

Pros: Intake dust filters accessible from the front, for both the front intake fans and the entire length of the bottom.
Sound proofing elements on all panels.
Thumb screws stay attached to removable parts.
Tons of room for routing cables behind the motherboard, and included velcro tiedowns and rubber grommets are a nice touch.
Black interior with white accents look amazing.
Cardboard box with all included screws has quantities and visual depiction on the side, making using the right screws a breeze.
Middle pin for holding motherboard in correct space is a nice feature.
Removeable 3.5 hard drive cage is super nice.
Plenty of zip tie downs available even on bottom of case.

Cons: Fan controller switch has three positions, and all three positions seemed identical in terms of noise and speed.
Would prefer magnetic removable covers for the top of the case instead of clip downs.
Dust filter on the top would be a nice touch.
Grommet and hole for connecting the PSU to the 8 pin CPU header is a bit small and clips the top edge of the case, making it slightly difficult to run the cable through.
Side panels are a bit hard to attach correctly.
Why not 4x USB 3.0 on the front, instead of 2x 2.0 and 2x 3.0?
Blue LED for the power/activity light didn't match the black/white color scheme I was going for, but it does look fine with plain black.
Should have shipped with 2 intake fans on the front, if for nothing else a consistent look. I appreciate being able to find the exact one I needed available here on newegg:

Other Thoughts: Matching case fans here:

Fractal Design Dynamic GP-14 Black/White Hydraulic Bearing 140mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Same case fan used in Fractal Design R5. 02/05/2016

This review is from: Fractal Design Dynamic GP-14 Black/White Hydraulic Bearing 140mm Case Fan

Pros: Matches the case fans in the Fractal Design R5 case perfectly. Appears to work fine.

Cons: No cons so far!

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to get more case fans for your Fractal Design R5 case, I can confirm this one matches the included front intake fan perfectly.

BitFenix BFA-MSC-SATA330WK-RP 11.81
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Extremely short cable length, but they look good. 02/04/2016

This review is from: BitFenix BFA-MSC-SATA330WK-RP 11.81" (30cm) SATA3 (6Gb/s) Cable (with sleeve)

Pros: Sleeving looks nice and professional.
These are the ONLY white ones you can find on Newegg that don't look sketchy (other ones are white plastic).

Cons: Approximately 3X more expensive compared to other SATA cables.
I can't think of any good reason to have 12" inch length of cables. If you are going for the professional look of having them sleeved, surely you will want to route them behind the motherboard for a nice clean look.

Other Thoughts: My mistake for not noticing the length, but I am frustrated that they don't offer a longer length of cable.

Same cable is the only white sleeved cable available here at newegg or at competitor sites that I can't mention here, the only other site I saw that had a longer length was a site called based out of Hong Kong.
