Damn Fractal Design! Just two days after I got my Arc Midi, they release this R4.
They improved all issues I had with the R3, and made me go for the Arc. Support for 140 mm fans, removable HDD cages.

I'm gonna put my R3 for sale but I'm not entirely sure I'll go for the new R4. I want to be unlimited. biggrin.gif

The specs on those Xtraflo slim fans are very likely exaggerated (a lot), they're probably closer to 30dba/40cfm/low static pressure.
I don't dare to even guess what the real static pressure is)
Just get a good heatsink, a lot less painful.

I want a thick 240mm rad to cool the cpu & gpu. The cpu, yeh it's not a problem these days. I don't like the huge noctua so a kuhler 620 works fine BUT, I rather make a full setup with a loop that goes to cpu, then gpu...the whole thing.

Adi you know you can also cool the GPU with a Kuhler 620, check out the Artisan section for some mounts. It's a new trend and it cools the GPU to within 5-10C of what you'd get with an actual WC loop. That coupled with good fans (say GTs) can be a great cooling solution, and that's what I'll do when I next upgrade.

I'm aware of that thread but I don't want to use the 620. Asetek has an OEM product which is something I could settle for but they insist not selling it to private customers. Weirdos.

What's wrong with the 620?

OK, so here is the first pic, to prove I'm a Fractal Design owner. Can I join the club now, please?
Sorry for the mess, I should have taken a pic before starting dismantle it.

yeah, a pretty good review...

as to the new R4, i won't be buying one as my midi is the same without a front door. i knew they'd made some
improvements over the epic R3 case, but this kinda left me shrugging my shoulders. instead of subtle changes
make them to where peeps like me, would move to the silent case because of.... and not i got it, what else.

i commented in another forum, to make me buy one today it'd have to have:
Quote:
to buy the R4.5 or R5 i'd want it to be taller (500mm+), water cooling compatible, 4 USB 3.0 (with 2.0 pigtails)
and convertible opti bay to use that area for HDD inline with the other cages and fix that friggin' door to open
WIDER or hinge at the bottom or reversable!just let me access the fan area easier. make the front fan cartrige
less clumbsy and more adaptable than the clip-on fan clips (that break) use fan attachment bosses (brass
preferably) for more fan selection (140mm fan market is not as selectable as the 120mm are at this time).
just make thin metal brackets to attach to the back of mobo to secure the SSD drives, they dont weigh any
amount of mass to worry about ripping away from the tray (optional placement).

and please, please stop making the public
cry for a windowed-side panel. state it on
release that a panel will be available,

PERIOD!

instead of waiting for public opinion to scream for it (the XL got one...).
get it close to this and my dollars will be your dollars Fractal Design. till then i'll stay with
my Arc Midi (R4 without a door).

some peeps base their purchase of a case whether it has a viewing window or not. and if will, then you have a
sale now and in the future. customers want options, you give them a few of the same.
the up to 510mm x 510mm case market is tight and in silent case market its bloddy.. gotta be on the cutting-edge
like the arc series move.

I don't have enough space to mount another Kuhler 620. The other product from Asetek, that one has 1x thick 120mm rad so it's far more convenient.

Guys, I've been thinking about this and maybe, just maybe there's a chance Fractal take notice of the wanted changes and make those, before the actual market release. Like they did with their new HTPC, it came out people didn't like some things about it and they changed it again, then posted a new newsletter. Either way, I'm gonna email Fractal.

Btw, regarding the SSDs need to be installed before the mobo, I have a very elegant solution...just use a 2-side gluetape. smile.gif

Fractal Design has responded with a new video regarding the radiator comments, you better see it guys. It shows stuff TTL didn't show.



I think the "problem" is solved.

Doesn't really solve the "H100 problem" though does it?

Just sent them an email suggesting to relocate the top fan locations to that of the midi so they would get "more money from me and other fractal lovers" smile.gif

It's a simple fix that I think would greatly increase the amount of people that would buy it. Me included.
