Thats China production for you....

It seems they got a bad bunch of FP I/O's.
I wouldn't mind so much but it will probably mean having to remove the 420 rad in the roof to install the replacement which is a bit of an operation with a loop already installed.

Other than that I quite like this case, especially the design. I got a 420 rad in the roof of a mid tower with enough room inside for a 140 XRES/Pump combo and all my hard drives.
That and it costs so much less than Corsair cases.
There's also the sound proofing on the back side panel and roof panels which is very nice.

Some things like the front IO panel were disappointing though, like the holes weren't tapped very well for the thumb screws, I actually had to use a screw driver on them.
The side panels don't slide out unless I push them in a little.
And while a 420 rad does fit in the roof it also means that you can't use the 140mm fan on the back.

But as I said, for the price I can't complain too much.

Would getting a Define S for pure air build be wrong? It feels like putting 3 120mm fans in the front gives ideal air flow throughout the case. But perhaps too noisy? Define R5 only allows for 2 such fans, at the lower half of the case.

I can't hear them. I opened the top back with 4 fans in, one out.

Hi guys, i have a question? Did any of you had a faulty usb 3.0 jack/connector on a front panel of a Define R5? I bought this excellent case about a month ago, and from the start, my right usb 3.0 port doesn't work but left one does. Everything is properly connected to the MB and jack isn't damaged or wobbly. I need you advices, what should i do?

Do like everybody else has had to do. Go to fractals site. Register, tell them of your issue and hope they send you a new I/o front panel and cables. My audio jacks are backwards. I just did the jump through hoops for China Junk replacement this morning with fractal and near useless China Junk from Corsair. Maybe one day these idiot company's will pull there heads out and build there products in a respectable country. Or at least in there home country the cheap ass's!

Good Luck!

You're running with the stock CPU cooler though (for some reason).

What does the oem cooler have to do with noise? They are all but whisper quite? I've never heard a loud one. I'm confused.

The stock Intel CPU cooler is merely adequate in terms of actual cooling performance versus aftermarket coolers. Many aftermarket CPU coolers will also adjust your overall system's noise level; this is often corrected by choosing a reputable brand and model; i.e, something that isn't cheap and bought at Walmart. You will find many people here at OCN will circle jerk over the Hyper 212 cooler but for $20-$30, it really does provide a nice boost in CPU cooling performance versus the stock cooler than Intel provides you with. It is also quiet.

It's got a 53 watt g3258 dual core in it and that cooler is fine for that. I was showing a box that is quite, no water pump.
