[Official] Fractal Design Case Club - Page 1297

H440 is done, out, a shell of a case now. In, is the Define S. It is such a better case for a water cooled rig. Spent the weekend transferring everything from the H440 to the Define S. It went perfect! I could live with the Define S and never have to make a mod. Unlike the H440 that screams I need mods to try and do my job. With that said. The Define S will get a few basic mods. The plastic window has to go! The blue power/hd led will be changed to red and the front panel will get opened up a tad to improve air flow. I really enjoyed doing the case change out and like the Fractal Define S.X99 Define S

I bought an open box arc mini r2 from Amazon and the top plastic cover was broke. Contacted FD and they had a new one to me in less than a week. Free of charge!

Excellent CS!
Customer for life! (helps that I love their stuff)

I have to say that of all companies I have dealt with while building PCs, Fractal Design and Coolermaster have best CS I have ever had business with.

4 days while not the end of the world is pretty long for a CS response in the US yea. Most companies will at the most advertise a "1-2 business day" response to inquiries/support.

Their customer service is awesome! I mean, a few months ago I asked if they would build something like the SilverStone ML04B and out popped the Node 202!

...I'm kidding of course, they saw the demand and released what I hope is another great case. biggrin.gif

I saw Node 202 on pics before, only now noticed half of it is plastic, ugh :|
Don't like plastic boxes.

Yea, HardwareCanucks did a review of it already. I don't mind plastic in that form factor. It's a nice looking case though.

Hello!
I've just ordered Define R5 to replace my old Chieftec Bravo smile.gif
I ordered also additional GP-14 fan.
I am going to try 3-fan configuration at first.
2x front intake
1x rear exhaust

Will it be enough for my config or should I consider ordering 1-2 fans for top exhaust? I wouldn't like to open top because there are no dust filters.

The key components are:
i7-4770k
Noctua NH-D14
Gigabyte 980Ti G1 Gaming
EVGA Supernova G2 750W PSU

That's exactly how I have configured my fans in my R4. Working out splendid for me at least. smile.gif

You can get dust filters from demciflex for the top
