post #3731 of 16063
Got my R4 Friday, so far I've been pretty impressed. Only real complaint is the need to use screws to secure 120mm fans in the front. The video made it seem tool less for fans of all sizes. I'll post more when the rest of my parts arrive and I can start really building.

Updated with a shot of the h100 attached.

Alright, so im looking into getting the R4 because I like the quality of it, sound dampening, and just overall quality.

Im finding mixed reviews and I myself am getting confused by pictures regarding the H100 and where it can be mounted.

So can someone clarify to me if the H100 can be mounted in the top 120m holes, or if it can be mounted in the front, if it will reach to the cpu.

I have been searching, but to no avail which is why I come before you tongue.gif

I understand how you feel I emailed Fractal before purchasing and they told me it probably wouldn't fit.. That said if you mount it in the front with the 120mm fans in the fan holder the h100 will reach the CPU area. You will have to give up the hard drive cages though.

Depends on your mobo and ram heatsinks AFAIK, but it's very tight fit nevertheless. (top)

That's too bad about the H100 not being able to be mounted in the R4, well unless you have specific motherboard/ram to make it fit, you would have assumed they would have done the top like they did in the Arc confused.gif.

I discussed about it with a Fractal rep, and the reason(s) they didn't do an "arc-style" top were basically that:
1) if they'd just offset the fan mounts, it would have looked bad.
2) If they had made a separate top panel it would have driven the cost up. And it doesn't really fit the Define lineup.
3) radiator compatibility was a low priority

They did seem to realize that it is obviously a flaw in their design even though radiator mounting is/was a pretty low priority on the R4.
They also promised to look into alternate fan mounting options for the fronts of their cases wheee.gif(= no more plastic clips maybe?)
