+ Build Quality. This is a steel chassis with sound dampening materials covering both side panels and as such is quite heavy. I never understood the allure of the ultra lightweight aluminum chassis. It's a desktop computer, you're going to put it in one place and not move it around. If you need a LAN box, build one. Every aspect of this case screams quality, from the thick heavy metal side panels, to every joint or riveted metal connection, and even the drive bays are high quality metal.
+ Aesthetics. I used to want a case with a big window in the side panel, cold cathodes, LED fans, UV reactive paint, the whole nine yards. Now that I find myself closer to 30 than I am to 20, It really feels like a computer from Toys R Us when you have all those glowy lights coming out of it. The Define R4 is very sleek and understated. I absolutely love the design of the case. The front door is a brushed metal looking thick plastic door, and the paint on the chassis and side panels is really high quality black.Read more ›
1) The "rivet warts" created by the rivets used to hold the case together pushed up too high, preventing my power supply from mating properly with screw-holes in the case; had to take a Dremel to them before I could mount the power supply.
2) The case comes with four pre-attched pads that act as vibration dampers for the power supply; one of mine was missing, and I had to tear one of the remaining three in half to level the power supply.
3) As indicated in the reviews, the filter for the bottom air intake is a high-quality mesh that can be easily removed for cleaning. What the reviews do not tell you is that it is not so easy to insert it again. The frame for the mesh is not rigid enough to slide back in. It tends to droop and miss the second set of guide rails. This means that you will probably have to lift the case up so that you can guide the screen by hand, which sort of defeats the purpose of making it removable in the first place.
4) The company makes a point about how there are attachment points for two SSDs on the back of the mother board tray, This is true, but what they don't mention is that you have to remove the motherboard before you can add or remove an SSD. In my book, this makes them useless. Not that big a deal; this beast has plenty of drive bays (so long as you aren't installing one of the really, really long video cards and have to pull the second set of drive bays to make room).Read more ›
The latter point is my interest. I'm all about silent computing. My go-to cases have been Antec's Solo and Sonata line. The former is similarly well-built, but cramped and far more difficult to build inside than this Fractal. The Solo II doesn't appear much of an improvement, so this is my new preferred enclosure.
A few notes:
* Fans. There are two included and they're both 140mm and very quiet. There's also a fan controller with at least three outputs wired into a 3-position switch in the front of the case. All fans appear to use whatever voltage is set.
* Cable management. Large rubber grommets line the motherboard tray. With cable ties, I had no trouble finding room for aesthetically pleasing cable runs. The only exception was a USB 3.0 cable intended to plug into the back of the case. There are no grommets leading out, so I had to remove the vertical PCI-style slot cover on the back-right. The space the cable isn't filling, I sealed with a small piece of flexible black foam available at craft stores. There was adequate room behind the motherboard tray for Molex connectors and the thick 24-pin power cable.
* Drive support.Read more ›
