How do I remove front bezel to get to second R4 drive cage screws? Do I pull from the bottom? I thought I only had to remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the case but there is a stabilizer arm with 2 more screw heads behind the front bezel. It's new and rigid plastic and don't want to break anything.

EDIT: I pulled from the bottom and it easily popped off. Hope it goes back on as easily.

I was kind of confused at first too, but then the front panel came off so easily...
No problem at all!

And you can put it back on quite easily too.


I always thought there would only be 4 screws you have to remove, at least it looked like that from the videos.

I was convinced on upgrading to the Midi, but i'm really digging the sleekness of the R4 with that front door. I can't decide now lol To the guys that own the r3/r4 does all the noise damping techniques it uses really help with sound?

I can honestly say that my Define XL (r3/4 bigger brother) made no sound with all fans ( gt15's ) on high.

Noise dampening helps, but you need to choose between airflow and cooling or quieter with slight compromise on cooling/airflow. I have a case similar to the R3, but because it's a silent case I'm changing to the ARC for the airflow and 14cm fans! The R4 would be a good choice too though. I will overclock and like gaming, silence isn't important for me while gaming and when not gaming the 14cm fans can spin at low rpm and be almost silent anyway.

remove the exhaust fan to the intake position till you can get a better fan setup for the intake.
is the front intake fan setup as exhaust? it looks turned around as exhaust?

Yeah I had accidentally flipped it around at some point, but shortly after the picture was taken I switched it back to intake. I have ZERO room behind my mobo for the SSD, so not sure what I'll do in regards to that. Possibly velcro under the opti bay.



Figured modding my pc case was a good excuse to finally get a dremel. Been wanting one for a few years now... Lowes had the Dremel 4000 3/34 on sale for $75. Normally $90-$100. Was only $5 more than the Dremel 3000 2/28 so if you've been holding off now's the time! tongue.gif

Taking some more inspiration from the Fractal R4, I combined my bottom two cable routing holes into one long hole, and just applied electrical tape over the edges until I can get some u-channel.

I also cut out the bottom + back honeycomb fan grills (even though I don't have a bottom fan yet). I applied weather stripping around the inside edge of the back grill in order to decouple the fan from the case and cut down on any vibration noise. I also applied some around where the PSU meets the case for the same reason.

Results of cutting out fan grills = No difference in temps :S
