Those are all good options really. IMO white cases look awesome, but I just can't see myself owning one. Draws too much attention I guess. If you do go with the solid side, you could always cut out your own custom window if you have the tools and know how. Last but not least, a carbon wrap would look pretty good on the front as well.

Guess it really depends on how much work your willing to do with the new case. Good luck! its a win, win, win in my book. biggrin.gif

Yeah I think White looks awesome but my wife hates it. I'll go for the windowed R4 and wrap it I think. Thanks for your input. .

Side panel fitment is horrible, I have to bang them extremely hard (giggity) to get them on.
I guess you get what you pay for. This case is amazing on paper, but I would have gone with something else given the chance.

That's odd that it's taken so long. I've had a pedestal foot, fan controller, fans, side panel, and thumbscrews all replaced without issue and quickly. I'd e-mail them again and see if it didn't just get lost. They're usually great about responding quickly, though they can be a little slow to let you know something shipped.

I find the case quality is actually pretty solid, but I think their machining might be slightly off. My case came with several stripped thumbscrews, the side panel sticks out a little past the front panel, the fan controller arrived dead, and a fan arced when I turned it on. The case itself is sturdy and solid and easy to work in. Coupled with how quickly they replaced stuff and did so without making a fuss about it (unlike some other companies I've dealt with), I can't complain.

I'm tempted to get the Windowed R4 in Titanium because it's only £10 dearer and it has the window but it has the Titanium front that I'm not a fan of but I'm thinking that I'll wrap that in Carbon.
I'm tempted to get the Windowed R4 in White because I was thinking about doing an Assassin's Creed theme (White, Black, Red)
But I'm also tempted to get the standard R4 because it's the colour that I'm used to BUT it has no window and they don't sell them separately in the UK yet as far as I'm know.
HELP PLEASE!

I would say the Titanium R4 or as you have a lot of black and red components already in your current build you could easily do a black/red/white build with an R4 white case. I do think white cases look great, but IMO only in the right room setting. I know that it would not look right in my office as all the furniture is beech colour, if the desk was black then a white case would look awesome. biggrin.gif

My desk is Pine so a white case wouldn't look too good on it.

Titanium it is then. I'll order it in a bit and hopefully you'll see it soon.

Thanks guys.

I was gonna get the titanium r4 and wrap it in carbon but then the midi went on sale. :/

If you have the tools to make your own window, go for it. If not, it's not worth trying to find someone to borrow from or find someone to do it. The plus is you can choose the shape.

Should hopefully be here in a few days. I'll post a few pics when it arrives and a few more when I've moved everything over.

I have the tools but not the patience biggrin.gif so i ordered the Windowed version.

I was initially planning on doing a Steampunk theme but quite a few people have been doing it recently so I decided not to. I'll just try to make it as clean as possible and maybe throw a few Assassin's Creed things in to make it a little different.

Got both my LED strips in.. Going to be upgrading that PSU to an AX850 some time early next year. Until now the rainbow cables will have to do, I'm not trying to win any system modeling contest so I'm good with them like that. rolleyes.gif
