never heard of them, and I've been building rigs for over a decade.. guess I've just never looked into it.. they all look nice.. perhaps its because I have always like the bigger-mid sized cases like the corsair 400-500R and some of the others companies etc..

the smaller cases give me issues.. they're too small for me.. I like having space to build in.. but again.. all the builds i have seen in here look great!.. continue on!

The R4 is actually quite spacious...on par with the 500R. I went from a 600T to an R4 and it was much easier to build in and the 600T is a bigger case. There's also an XL version of the R4.

I would have to agree it is very easy compared to many of the chassis's I have worked with on my own builds, upgrades, and even the chassis's I have put together in pc builds for family and friends in the past year alone I have probably put about 6 computers together for other people excluding my own pc and upgrade that I did very recently. I went from a 922 haf case that I got on sale this past year, and it is a good case for the price I got it for but it is not my style aesthetically, and it had no cable management to speak of which bothered me. I am still learning on how to put together good builds and have gotten better in the past few months especially because of how many builds I have done during the tax season. This chassis is the nicest chassis I have owned for myself, and it is on par with cases that are more expensive by a decent amount, having worked with cases like the haf x, Rosewill Thor case, and etc. I think this case is great for a purchase if someone is looking for something minimal, aesthetically brilliant imo with it's simplicity and feature rich quality materials. I also think the Arc Midi 2 is another case that looks great and if sound is not really an issue I would say this is a great buy. I ended up finding this case for 90 dollars open box, but with everything with it, from a computer parts recycle company through ebay. I talked the guy down to selling me the case for 75 and adding 2 more R2 140mm fans for another 10 dollars. I also got free shipping and this has to be the best purchase I have made for my pc in the past year. Sorry for the prolonged post, but I guess it goes to show how much of an impact this case has had on me. I also think that once I get a 140-280mm radiator it will work and look great in case.

Would the xl fit two r9 290s with arctic accelero xtreme iv's, on a maximus formula vi? The refine r4 I currently have only allows me to fit the r9 in the middle pci express slot. If I place it in the slot closest to the i7, the g skill heat shroud gets in the way of the heatsink on the back of the card. I am looking to get a larger case that will allow me to use the top pci express slot after I file the accelero heatsink a bit, and the bottom third pci e slot that is currently not available to use since the psu is butt up against it. I love my current r4 but this restriction I have is unfortunate. Thanks for any help.

@Revolvo

i think they would fit quite nicely on that case seeing that arc XL has 9 PCI slots. although you might run to some problems if your going to put your cards in the first and second pcie slots. arctic accelero will eat up 3 slots upon installation, i think is a good idea to put the cards on the first and last pcie slots to have a bit of space on one another, thus giving them room to a have a a good airflow from the intake fans. thumb.gif
