Please could you look at our partner then such as Ebuyer where you will be able to buy"

I thought they were originally set to be released at the end of September/beginning of October?

I would be a good size of tubing for the R4? I want decent size tubing so I can make good tight bends with but not where it fills up my case with tubing. I don't really want really small tubing either....Whats a good normal size tubing everyone uses?

i use 7/16" hose on 1/2" barbs.. tight fit no clamps, if thats not safe enough
then opt for the 1/2" x 5/8" or 1/2" x 3/4" hose for compression fittings. a lil
more costly, but not many have complaints on leaks (although they can leak).

if thats too beefy, the fall-back is 3/8" tubing. sometimes the fatter hose
can complicate some routing.. but on 5/8" OD i havent yet..

Node 304 & 605 look nice. Wish the 605 was at least 25mm taller so better downflow coolers would fit... like Phanteks TC14CS or Noctua C14 redface.gif

or better yet 40mm taller so full size towers would fit. wink.gif

The added height would also allow for a full size optical bay. wink.gif

I can't choose between the R4 and Midi, can you guys help me out? What made you choose one over the other, and is there a window version for the Midi (or would an R4 side panel work?) Thanks in advance, will be getting one of these cases asap once I can figure out what I want.

midi is better for watercooling and airflow in general, although you could do a little modding to to get some good watercooling in an r4. it has a side window, but i think its purchased separately. R4 is better at silence. I think the r4 definitely looks better. Depends on what you want for your system.
