Should be but considering the MB was never installed in the case since it's new, I can't tell you the difference.
I've cut the front plastic grill then put the standoffs in, removed grommets and snipped the metal grills off.

Waiting for PSU again, then it will get installed into the case.

I have one red strip behind the motherboard, but when the side panel is on it´s little bit too dark in there. First idea was white led in the case, so the red one still be visible.
Other idea was to get new better fans (fractal´s arent the vest ones), but with white leds. What to you guys think when i put some white led Corsair fans front and back does it make inside the case littlebit more visible or it would be overpowered by white and kills the red led behind the motherboard tray (sorry, i dont have pics with led right now, i´m on it).
Also i prefer led fans because i can buy AF120 and SP120 with really good price right now but they dont have one´s without the leds so its basically white led strip + other brand fans or Corsair led fans.
Considering LED lights cost a few $ and run off of 12V, just get LED lights that fit the style you want. Super easy, heck it even comes with glue on the other side to attach and all. Bright enough too depending on what version you select. 2m lights up a room so I bet lighting up a PC case will be easy with them.

Red never seems very bright to the eye as does green or blue. Plus red lights don't have as high output as other colors.

So I just put in the new swiftech h220x. Took a bit of ingenuity to install it but it fits. Only problem now is the stupid hex pattern in the top of the R4 makes the intake noise on the sp120s weird and loud. Anyone have any ideas on how to smooth it out?

If I ever get the time, I'll do the same thing. Would really be nice to not have to put a fan in the rear to make more noise. Damn mesh in computer cases!

You can set the fan to exhaust or run 5mm washers in between fan and case, which you might need longer screws.
The H220-X is a low FPI rad of 12, the SP120 is really not needed.

Well I really only bought then because the stick fans are white and I just didn't want to see why on my all black case. Would 5mm really be enough?

yes

dremel or metal cutters

remove most of the mesh and put in a nice open fan or radgrille

what must you do to join the club as such?

I have the Define XL R2 and the Define R2

I love them both.

I am really shocked at how heavy the XL is.
