OUCH. Sorry I didn't notice the shipping.

They were way too short. So I ended up just picking up a set of CableMod cables for it. I also swapped out the stock fans for some Fractal Venturis. This thing is damn near silent.

Overall I really like this case. I went with the non-windowed version for better noise isolation and because I planned to put it in my desks cubby. (The cubby has no door or rear paneling)

Damn, that is one clean build. I actually went back to the picture to confirm that it was the Nano S since there is so much room for the GPU. Smart idea to go with an SFX PSU although it surprises me that the cables weren't long enough in a mini ITX case. Mind if I ask what the specs are and how they perform under load (thermally speaking)?

I have the SF450 and while the cables aren't the longest, the Nano S isn't exactly "nano".

For anyone interested in the Nano S, the windowed version is on sale for $39.99 after rebate at Newegg.

That's true. It's one of the biggest mini ITX cases around.

Smart idea to go with an SFX PSU although it surprises me that the cables weren't long enough in a mini ITX case.

Here are the specs.

MOBO: Msi H110i Pro
CPU: Intel i5 6500
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2133 (8GB x 2)
GPU: XFX RX 480 GTR Black Edition
PSU: Corsair SF600
SSD: HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe 2.0 x 4 (240GB) and Samsung 850 Evo (1TB)
HSF: Noctua U12S w/ Fractal Venturi HP-12 PWM

Fans: 1x Fractal Venturi HF-12 (Rear Exhaust) and 2x Fractal Venturi HF-14 (Front Intake)

I went with a RX 480 over a GTX 1060 because I have a LG 29UM68-P 29" 2560x1080 IPS 75hz FreeSync Display

Thermal performance in my build is great. My GPU tops out at 74c with the Core at 1400mhz / 1175mv and the Memory at 8400mhz / 1025mv. Up 5c over stock clocks. (1340/8000)
My i5 6500 runs crazy cool but it is only a 65w Skylake CPU. Idles at 26c and I have yet to see it go over 56c at full load.
I like to keep my PC nice and quiet so my fan curves are far from aggressive. I live in Wisconsin and it is pretty much 70f (21c) in my house year round. (Central Air / Gas Heat)

On a side note, my Motherboard, CPU, and Ram are all place holders. Kaby Lake and Zen are right around the corner so I thought it best to wait. My Mom has been wanting me to build her a small PC to replace her aging laptop so these are going to go in her build.

The R4 isn't EOL, but still it unfortunately may not be easy finding a replacement windowed panel for the R4 in your region without substantial shipping costs, as I'm sure you've seen. One bit of advice I can share on your search is that the windowed side panels for the Define S and Arc Midi R2 also fit the R4 if you happen to run across those parts (though the Midi lacks sound dampening). Wish there was more I could do to help.

Kind of curious about your 480. Just watched jays2cents video about the xfx. His certainly seemed to be cherry picked. How's yours as far as power draw, temps, and overclocking. His was overclocked to like 1475 about 130w @ 1.175v all at around 64c. Stock was like 1280mhz, 87w @ 1.05v at 60c.

From what I've seen that certainly looks like a golden card.

Has anyone experience the HDD cages shaking in the Define R5? I'm considering going from my current Xigmatek Elysium to the Define R5 to save some space and some reviews on newegg and amazon seemed to indicate their HDD cages would rattle and make noise.
