DO you have a build log thread or are you just posting pictures?

How the hell do you manage cables so well?

Where are your SSDs/HDDs ?

No build log. I just threw this together yesterday. Thanks on the cable management, the SSD is above the optical drive. This Fractal doesn't leave much room at all for cable management so creativity is a must.

A SSD drive will also fit behind the back panel without any complicated issues. You can actually 3 back there if needed.

Should I put together a build log since it's already built?

Define R4 black is $79.99 at Newegg right now, with promo code EMCPWHB37. Ends Feb 3. Pretty good price, though it's often at that price so I don't think you need to bust down doors. Still, just in case I thought I'd mention it.

Long time lurcher of the forums finally asking a question. The Define R4 has SSD mounts on the back of the mobo tray, but of course you have to remove the entire motherboard to change or swap out any SSDs that you mount there. Question is, is there some sort of 2.5" tray that you could permanently mount to the back of the tray such that if you upgrade your SSD you don't have to remove the motherboard to access the SSD mounting holes? Great idea, but such a silly design...

They actually redesigned the mount in the Arc Mini R2. You could probably buy a ssd tray like this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B009EO1UQ6/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1390937657&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX110_SY165) and adapt it.

Cheap 118$ +ship/taxes for window R4 on newegg.ca for CNDs. I wonder if its worth it or just to go price match with Canada Computers or something. (no shipping)

Someone on here, I can't remember for sure who, made their own that looked nice, but for cost and simplicity,
