Introducing Define R4

The Fractal Design Define R4 is the latest in the Define Series of computer cases offering minimalistic and stunning Scandinavian design fused with maximum sound reduction, configurability and functionality.

The Define R4 side and front door panels are fitted with dense, sound-absorbing material making it a benchmark for noise reduction. Moreover, the Define R4 accommodates up to 8 HDDs, all modern graphics card sizes, and multiple ventilation options - including two standard Silent Series R2 hydraulic bearing fans - to keep internal components at optimal temperatures.

For ultimate functionality, the Define R4 features a front interface with USB 3.0 and an integrated three-speed fan controller behind the front panel door.

Dayum! Definitely getting this case, should be a nice change from my HAF X (bought it because of how big and futureproof it was a year ago, now I'm bored of it)

I've been tempted to replace my R2 Black Pearl with the white R3, now I'm even more tempted to move to a white R4 version biggrin.gif

{EDIT}

Also see OCNs Fractal Design Case Club thread LINK

And some R4 discussion in above mentioned thread from this post onwards LINK.

Fixes everything thats wrong with the R3 which isnt much, my biggest gripe was the non removal hdd cages. The extra space at the back is nice, with the R3 you can't really put 2 cables on top of each other without making the side panel bulge. it also made the 8pin CPU cable a pain to get in through the gromet at the top. The 140mm fans are a pretty cool bonus.

I'll be replacing my R3 with this for sure
