Fractal tech support just sent me an email. They are going to overnight me a whole new set :-) That's pretty cool support.....

Nice :-) love the Blue Led. Is having a front fan a must? I've tried it without and my temps are already darn good. Can having a front fan make a big difference in the R4?

I know that in my Corsair 800D at front/bottom fan were a "must". My temps dropped almost 10C with a bottom fan, due to lack of airflow to my GPU which made the whole case warm up.

I would say yes. I mean at least in my core 1000. Its one of only 2 intake fans my case fits, and it's the only one blowing any cool air over the hdd and the ssd.

I built this for a friend earlier this week. Absolutely love the Define series!!!

Love the rigs here. Love these cases!! I really need to make the switch haha.. Running on a Antec 1200 still with all new fans of course. I have to replace my power source for sure though.

Questions:

- What power source would you guys recommend for a future watercooling rig?

I have the one 770 so far and could be looking into another. I run a i7 930 cpu.. p6x58d premium board six GB of ram and just one ssd and hard drive. Few 12 inch cold caths.. I'll probably get rid of them with the antec. I'm using a 850w corsair tx at the moment to power it all but the fan in this psu is about to go I think.

It has a wacky sound that just makes the most noise out of anything in the case and I would like to get a new corsair psu that is reliable (and not loud). Also, do all the new PSU's have the option of disconnecting cables? Without the antec 1200 I'd be at a loss in cable management. 850w Corsair TX has way too many cables.

- How is cooling with the Define R4 on all air? I like how most of you have water cooling, although I would try it one day I don't think at the moment I can afford it (maybe when I'm back at work and not in school). I have a cooler master hyper 212+ evo which is perfect for 4Ghz overclocking but if I were to get the silent R4 would I run into problems? I want to lose the 50 pound tank (Antec 1200) and just go all out on one of these Fractal cases. Arc MIDI R2 looks nice as well.

- One last question about the Define R4 and Arc midi r2. How good are the filters for keeping dust out? I've got a cat so it can get a little dusty in my apartment. My antec leaves a good amount of fine dust on everything inside, I can deal with the fact its there now but if I could stop more from accumulating I would go out and purchase one of these cases tomorrow!

This is an amazing thread for all of your PSU help.

I don't have any kind of watercooling in my R4. The temps I'm getting with my R4 are pretty good while keeping the noise to a minimum.

I also have the CM Evo and I can hear it during P95 but nevertheless the R4 does a great job silencing it.

The filters are pretty good but not as thin as I would like. It'll keep the cat hair out but small dust particles can still enter the case.

If you have any more questions about airflow you should check out this thread:

Man one thing though. I got some 120MM Fractal R2 silent fans for my R4. These fans are pretty loud compared to my old and trusty Scythe Sflex fans. I may go back to the Scythe fans. Those are only 800 RPM yet push about 33 cfm. I think the Fractal fans are like 1400 rpm at 43 CFM.
