I think the solid steel construction in the rest of the case might make the front door feel flimsier than it is by comparison.

 

The only two things about these line of cases is that Fractal decided that an extra led for the HDD isn't warranted, yeah sure I know that I can use the power led for that but most cases already have both.  Also that the door swings only one way, what if I want to place my computer case to my right? :)

How do you guys mount 140mm fans on the front of the R4 without any tools to remove the pegs?

? You just push the fans in, the pegs go into the screw holes of a standard 140mm fan.

Like the other guy said the bottom and front come with dust filters.

You can put filters on the side and top, like the Silverstone
http://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Tek-Filter-Cooling-FF143B/dp/B00ARB5E8A/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1385180270&sr=1-4&keywords=silverstone+dust+filter

Or the Demcifilter
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8824/ffi-31/DEMCiflex_140mm_Magnetic_Dust_Fan_Filter_-_Black_-_Steel_Aluminum_Plastic_Chassis.html?tl=g47c223s1024

Demci also sells a rectangular 140mm x 2 that will cover both fan mounts on top, vs using two 140mm filters
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16884/ffi-121/DEMCiflex_Dual_140mm_Magnetic_Dust_Fan_Filter_-_Dual_Radiator_or_Fans_-_Steel_Aluminum_Plastic_Chassis.html?tl=g47c223s1024

The only place where it's hard to put a filter is the rear fan mount, the honeycomb mesh grill extends out a bit. The magnetic filters will stick on there but it looks bad. Plus there's no point, this is an exhaust and there's a mesh right above it too, on top of bring vertical.

Hi.

Is there anywhere to buy a left sidepanel for the Define Mini other than at Fractals sparepart site, preferably in the EU? Cause they have a timeframe around 3-5 weeks.

Reason for my question, I'm sick and tired of moduvents, to me they are the most ugly thing ever created by Fractal, and yes yes, I know how they work, and what they are good for, but I'm huge fan of the clean look, and the moduvent grills ruin that for me, so I want to replace the moduvented sidepanel with another left sidepanl.

I love Fractal cases, but not the moduvents.

To the fractal marketing rep in the video: "I dare you to do this to a Define series front door".  lol!
