if you are a gamer, enthusiast, or look for the nth in cooling the R4/Midi
are a better choice case.

many have tried to custom loop the 550D and its just not fesible to run the
tight rads and limit the hardware due to the shortness of cooling. as the R4/Midi
are rich in cooling options and still stay a quiet case for no one to hear.

Thank you for convincing me! Anyone looking for a 550D? hahaha

I have to say, I replaced the fans with TY-140 rear and 2 AP-15 for the front. All controlled with the lamptron fc. i do like the 550D, but...

I was considering the white R4 as well. A change like this is not that bad in life i guess. Even the R4 with window! As far as WC, I am not there yet, I don't do any OC, but that does not mean I won't in the future. I will try and sell the 550D 1st locally. If it sells then I will be purchasing the R4.

many have tried for the monster cooling solution for that case and you
can see 'em in the marketplace or they just settle and move to another case.
i like the look, and many swear by 'em and as well swear at 'em.
doors are for keeping things in or out not kinda-sorta.

Interesting, They seem to have figured out without the ability to mount a 240 radiator+fan in most cases(due to fan mounts too close to the Motherboard panel) that the Top fan mounts are totally useless. Too bad it is all black and I already have a white R4 otherwise I might be trying to get of these, Do these come with Windowed Side Panels?

I Feel like for R5 they should just use the Top fan layout of the Midi-> Shift the Fan mounts closer to the side to better accommodate 240mm radiator+fan or Go Switch 810 style and add 1-1.5" to the Height for a Water Cooling compartment, The Side Panel fan mount could be reworked to like what Corsair 550D uses-> A Pop-off panel with Magnetic dust filters. A lot of "Silent" Cases now a days copies the Define Series in some way, I think it is about time for Fractal to copy back.

That looks awesome. I would change the cable ties to black so they blend with the cables, and you do not see them.


This makes me want to buy the R4 even more.
post #4550 of 15858
I know, currently I didn't find this kind.
I'm planing on MDPC sleeve the whole case (whiteout the PSU) and change the zip-ties.
I got the case on a good deal, less then 100 bucks wink.gif
I moved from an HAF 932 and it is so much better! in everything, build quality, easy installation etc...
