Which color Fractal R4

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking at doing a new build, and i was wanting some opinions as to which color of case i should go with, using this hardware. I am trying to decide between the Black R4 and the White R4

ASUS Maximus V FORMULA LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Black
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Red
CORSAIR AX860i
CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i
Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition Twin Pack, For H80i (Red Rings)
Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition x 5 (Red Rings)
EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-3662-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB x 2
Corsair Force Series GT CSSD 2.5" 120GB
Western Digital WD Green 3TB
Corsair Vengeance M65 Black
Corsair Vengeance K70 Black

Basically it would be an all red and black inside of the case.

It could go either way man, aesthetics are entirely subjective and since it's your rig - only your opinion matters really.
What I'd do is check out builds that you can find of both to get a better idea of what they'll look like and then decide.

Definitely black. Black looks better on a desk and not so childish. Think of all the perhipherals that are black, monitors, mice, keyboards, mouse pads, speakers. If you go black the inside of your case and your mouse and keyboard backlight(if it lights up) are the accent pieces to your desk. rarely ever do I see a white case that doesnt look out of place on a desk. they look good by themselves but not next to everything else.

Just my opinion. I do like the white R4, but definitely glad I got mine in black

I think black is the superior color choice for the Define R4. Gives a "monolith" vibe (e.g. 2001: A Space Odyssey) that way.
