Please let us know how R4 compares to your Midi... cable management, noise, etc. thumb.gif

Really? I found R2 has JUST enough room for cable management. Had to be careful but definitely wasn't a PITA. smile.gif

Cooler clearance could be a real PITA... Phanteks JUST fits.. Literally 1-2mm clearance with fans and maybe 4-5mm on cooler itself.

It's not PITA but it ain't easy if you don't use sleeved cables.

Yeah I'll let ya know. Convinced my friend to get better components so it should be a pretty decent build now. 3570K, MSI Z77A-G43, 8GB Vengeance LP Blue, AX650, 256GB Samsung 830, 3TB Barracuda, Fractal R4 Black and his GTX295. Trying to convince him to buy a newer graphics card but he doesn't game that much.

yeah, that'll test the air flow of the case with the GPU card.

Well my R4 has shipqd and I can't wait to get it. Will get here Tuesday at the latest. This is definitely going to be the nicest case I've owned and will easily beat my beta evo. I was really considering the midi but the price difference on newegg was just too much for me. Looking forward to some WC'd R4s

I have the same question/scenario. I don't think it's just Canada, I can't seem to find a store that carries these panels anywhere (granted, I'm only searching in English). I too have tried contacting Fractal Designs at their email for support, but have not received a reply.

Hi, I was able to get one of these by requesting a special order through a retailer. However, it will be significantly more expensive than the $20 ERSP because of shipping. Mine came to $41. Good luck!
