post #4571 of 16135
Thanks! I'm getting my Define Mini by next month, so I was a little curious about how big it actually was. So, judging by the pictures it's just as big as a Core 3000, am I right?
But anyways, i'll be fitting a Asus Maximus V Gene mobo in there, along with a 3770k CPU and a GTX 590. Going to have a waterloop(just for cpu though) in there, fitting a 240mm rad in the front.

Again, thanks for the pictures!

R4 Mini: 19.29" x 8.27" x 15.55"

Core 3000: 18.90" x 7.87" x 16.93"

There you go thumb.gif

But my question is why would you get the R4 mini when you can have the actual R4 for like 20 more bucks...

Received a white Define R4 today.

Have spent a good hour trying to get one of the side panels off, it just wont budge at all with as much forced used as I dare to. Do they weld these on ? rolleyes.gif

All you gotta do is take the two thumb screws off and slide the panel towards the rear and it will pop off.

I have taken side panels off before tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

Managed to get one of the panels off with a fair bit of effort. The other not budge despite my best efforts over an hour and with all the reasonable force I could use and with the case in all the orientations I could think of. Going to see if someone else can take it off..

Lmao, I was hoping you knew how. The pins at the top could have been bent up during shipping causing it not to slide.

Managed to get the panel off, now it wont go back on properly, probably for the same reason It didn't come off easy in the first place mad.gif

Because small cases are awesome. After I pass on my Arc Midi I'm not going to anything larger than a mATX. I had mATX before the Arc and loved it.. but made the stupid mistake to want Crossfire and a soundcard.

Call Fractal and see what they do? Can you see what is causing for the side panel to fit correctly? which side?
