Anyway i could be completely be wandering out in the dark, but to me the define s feels like a modified r4. Just wanted to point that out.

I won't be that surprised, some companies would love to tweak around their own proven designs to create a new derivative.

the height of the S isn't 451, its 465 at least that's what it says for the height on the length conversion chart

Fractal Design 4: 18.27" x 9.13" x 20.59"

Fractal Design S: 18.31" x 9.17" x 20.94"

Absolutely, I just switched my build from a r4 to a Define S - same case, just retooled. I already wonder what Define S v2 will have in store, since a couple of tweaks would make the case even better. More rad clearance on top would be killer for example.

Also, I love the moduvent filter idea. Sign me up!

I need a Define S mini.

All of these cases are great but they're just slightly too big

I don't find the Define S to be too big... but personal opinion being that I use to have a 750D which is quite taller and what not. Its a very good size if you have the junk to put in there.

Hey guys, so how are the owners of the Define R5 finding their cases after building in one?

I just built my machine into a Define R5 last week (haven't posted pictures yet) and I love it. I switched from a Define R4 into a Corsair 780t. Then from that down to a node 304. I had always missed my R4 and now that the R5 is out, I couldn't resist.

Compared to the R4, to me it feels a bit more flimsy. It is still miles better than most other cases on the market, just doesn't feel as much like a tank as the R4 did. It is however much more quiet than the R4 with the same hardware. I think they made a really good move with the way they modified the front panel. Also I like the fact that you can now switch the door to open from either side. I have removed the optical bay and moved the hard drive cage up there to give more airflow to the other components which is a great feature. I also like the fact that the grommets next to the motherboard are now slightly angled. That makes working with USB 3.0 connections that are on that side of the motherboard much easier.

All in all I love the case and don't see myself switching cases any time soon.

The filter construction is better and if you use cages then those are more modular.
Otherwise you lose EATX support for EATX over certain size.
I don't see a change on front panel, same door with dampening only the side vents are a little bigger.
Same short feet. Loses vertical expansion slot in favor of stamped out grill.
Stamped grills all over the case, still frown.gif
Same problematic dust covers that strip/break just like R4's one do.
The top is inset...

How much quieter is case A vs case B? Well it's proportional to the price paid difference, the more expensive the more quiet/better/more awesome the user perceives it to be. Other than that it's still a metal box with same vents, dampening, order, fans, so how much can it really be different in terms of noise? Nil.
