Hmm I should also mention that on the R4, should you decide to remove the cages completely, you can also remove the top rail thing, it's also screwed in, you just need to tuck a small screwdriver in there.

i would leave the HDD assembly all connected, while removing the rivets. kinda stabilizes
and prevents bending while drilling the floor rivets.
then once all are removed, remove upper HDD cage. then remove the lower (i use a string
or wire to hog-tie the lower cage to keep the HDD trays intact). lastely with a stubby phillips
or short phillips, remove the upper HDD mount. there you can mount the SSD and mount
the HDD in the optibay (HDD adapeter located in lower bay).

How much dust does the core 1000 collect and is it hard to clean that mesh? Have you guys added a rear fan? Is it needed since the front is so open?

Not that much if you have a side fan make sure you get a fabric dust filter as the metal one i have still lets dust through and gets stuck on my gpu's pcb and is hard to clean off it basically sticks to it and the front dust filter is quiet easy to clean just run your hoover nozzle over the front where the dust ring is and it cleans it quiet well. Yes a rear fan will help remove heat from the case.

I also plan on drilling mine out. Can you tell me where you got the multi mount? I only found them in blue.

Also if you had some free time, would you please take a picture of how it looks like in the 5.25 bay?

Thanks.

What size is the side hole in the core 1000 do you use it as an intake or an exhaust? Some reviews I was reading online were saying how if you don't need a rear fan as there is so much air from the front air pushes the dust to the back. It sounds strange to me I'm thinking a about a Magma 120 for the front to replace the front fan. How is the stock fan though is it decent enough to keep or is it loud?

The side fan is 120mm I had mine sucking into the case but since i instlled a tower cpu cooler the fan wont fit anymore. Its completeley up to you i like having the rear fan so it sucks heat and dust out my case and yeah the stock fan i pretty decent and quiet i switched mine out for a led fan instead.

Going to be having fun with my R4 here shortly. Got everything setup for a full loop. AlphaCool UT60 280mm 60mm radiator. Waiting on my new Maximus V and 3570K, should have the build started this week. I actually have two R4's here and I swapped all the white and black between the cases. All HDD trays and PCI brackets are swapped.

I will have a proper build log but here are components.

Intel i5 3570K (XSPC Raystorm)
ASUS Maximus V Formula (ThermoFusion block)
EVGA GTX 570 HD (Heatkiller V2)
Corsair HX750 (Misc Sleeving)
Dual DDC1-VC pumps with XSPC Acrylic Head
Alphacool UT60 280mm (60mm Thick)
XSPC 250mm Tube Res

Plus the thing we are all here to see.
Fractal R4 White / Window (all white swap)

This will be my first proper build. Shouldn't require too much custom work except for modding for the 280mm. I got a few ideas for mounting,

A question.

If you put led fans in the front of a fractal Define, will the light escape through the door slits on the side ?
