I love my R4.. this thing is super solid, no flex whatsoever. Build quality is top notch. I do have to agree with the static window, but honestly I didn't notice it until was brought up in this thread. Go with the R4, you won't be disappointed.

no dust filter on top
I/O panel facing upwards ( subjected to more dust and dirty )
and accumulate dust on side holes :

Why would you ever need a dust filter on top? That's exhaust. Positive pressure would prevent any dust from coming in unwanted space.

LOL

On the top when your pc is turned off enter many dust.
The dust usually coming from top to bottom then the top is the more dustier position.

And its also anti-aesthetic because if you plug a fan, when it will dirty u can see the grey halos on the blades.

Positive pressure dont means only put all fans intake mode, there must be a criterion.
R4 is not a Silverstone whit a sufficient opening from rear panel and when you use a positive pressure or use fan like Air penetrator to push the air to the top directly whit static pressure or you must intake air from bottom.

I don't turn off my R4, that's why it's in one.

I don't understand the rest of what you wrote. Or rather, I'm unsure of the understanding I'm gathering.

Its impossible for dust to get in on the top if no fans are used. They come pre-installed with blanks to minimize noise, and where ever there is intake, dust will accumulate. You can't prevent that.

if you keep covered the top holes are ok but this is not a great solution for cooling, the hot air go to the top, only the ancient chassis model use again a top whitout holes.
post #20 of 31
Why is this an issue? I don't see why you'd buy a silence orientated case and then leave the top open - figured you'd have it closed off. I can't see it being a cooling problem either, not unless you have stupidly high-wattage components. Hot air does naturally rise but convection is so weak that even one fan pulling air out from the back won't suffer.
