they sell all the other FD cases so I don't see why not.

Linus from NCIX says the shipments keep getting delayed... I assume it probably wont be till mid april when we finally see these cases out

I just received my case last night. I must say that this case is the WOW factor. I was very impressed and pleased with my purchase. The quality is amazing for the price.

I had sent Fractal Design an email a few days ago asking if they plan to offer an upgrade or retrofit to USB 3.0 for the Define R3 case since it only has USB 2, as the Lian Li PC-9F case that I was looking at (for my upcoming i7/SB build) has USB 3.

Here is their response this morning:

Hello,

Thank you for your mail, and thank you for interest about our products.
Very soon we will be able to offer USB3.0 upgrade kit for Define R3.
We are now working to find a technical solution for upgrade,
but unfortunately for now I can´t tell you exactly date when upgrade kit will be available on the market.

Best regards
Fractal Design


I thought they had ignored my email and almost given up.. but at least it's good to know that there is a possible USB 3 retrofit or upgrade in the future.

Yeah, The case is Amazing. I was blown away by the quality when I looked at it yesterday after receiving it.

approaching mid april, still no sign of the new rigs. Might just go with a 600T or something really cheap to hold me over.

Welcome me! (posted on XS too)

Corsair's AX 750 and F90 came to play.

Coolermaster Stacker 810 vs Fractal Design Define R3

Snuck the SSD up and out of the way. I'm actually using 5 Scythe SFLEX E's now, 2 in, 2 out, 1 cpu.
DefineFinish.jpg

But I can spice it up a bit here and say that I really like this case. I've got a bunch of numbers and things w/ an sb meter, but it's nearly as quiet as my Stacker and can will be MADE quieter once I cut out the fan grills...those need to go along w/ 3/4 of that HDD rack!

I'm pleased with this case although would be embarrassed if someone found out the front's plastic feels like something from a play toy nearly 2 decades ago. :/

Tell me if I missed you out!

BTW guys, despite this as being a silent case, it has quite impressive airflow. I have 1 fan at the front (Which definitely pulls air through, there are vents all around it) 1 exhaust and 1 HSF fan (Yate)

Getting temps of around 40 idle, and 55 at load
