In the top of the case, there is a hole, where the front panel connectors go down. i just fed the end of the LED strip in through that same hole, and made sure that i lit up towards the powerbutton, and then i disconnected the powerbutton from the motherboards.

I have the NEXT HUE, which allows me to change the color of the lights =)

I plan on having it like wilow has it. Cut the material and then put the mesh on it. However, last time I tried I got uneven circles. How should I measure this? I'm very confused..

I used a utility knife inline with the frame of the fans to cut a circle behind. Not sure if I'm being clear.

***Rig Update*** (pics coming this weekend)

I plan on ordering a Gigabyte Sniper 3 G1 mobo this week (to give my 680 DCII's a bit more breathing room)

Anyone know of any issues fitting an E-ATX board into a Define R4?


Furthermore, the MOSFIT heat-sinks seem a bit tall, anyone run into issues with tall heat-sinks and H100 mounting?

(I can always switch to an H80 or a tower cooler if it won't fit......I have a TON of other cpu coolers lying around lol)

Any input would be outstanding smile.gif

I have an Asus Maximus V Formula in my R4 and it fits really well. It blocks the right cable management holes a bit but they're still usable. The Asus board is 12x10.1 which is only a tiny bit smaller than the gigabyte Sniper which is 12x10.39

Yeah, I understand you. But when you drew your circles on the material you used, did you actually mount the fans on the front panel and draw the outline from that?

I'm hoping that after I get everything placed back in the rig, you won't really notice the green... (or maybe I can at least paint the accents on the MOSFIT heat-sinks?)
Along with my update, I have removed all the red NZXT fans, and swapped them out for Corsair SP and AF series fans (using the white rings) for a simple black/white theme.

Only concern at this point will be keeping the H100 at the top of the case. It's already a tight fit with my current board, and I have the feeling that I will have to switch to an H80 or a tower cooler (I think I have a few 212+'s, a V6 GT and a V8 in a box somewhere....as well as an H80 and one of the AIO's from Antec.....hmmmm I think I have too much computer junk XD)

Thank you! Looking at the spec, it seemed ok, but if you have had no issues I feel MUCH better smile.gif +rep

Hey guys i have a fractal r4 (white w/window version) coming friday. Im planning to use some left over parts from my main rig that ive upgraded to build a gaming/entertainment pc for my living room. This is what i plan on putting in it. i5 2500k cpu, hyper 212 cool, 8gb Kingston Hyperx 1600 Ram, Asus z68 pro-v gen 3 mobo, corsair 750w psu, seagate 500gb HDD + 64GB Crucial m4 and im going to take a evga gtx 670 SC 4GB card out of my main rig since im running 3way sli in there.

I know the r4 comes with 2 fans already, but im not sure how many i should add. I want the case to run cool but i also want to preserve as much of the quietness as i can. Was looking at buying a few 140mm corsair quite series fans or some more of the stock fractal fans but not sure which one to choose. I want to take the top HDD cage out for better airflow and just put the HDD and SSD in the bottom cages.

Was thinking of putting 1 in the back and 1 in the top back for exaust . Then 1 in the top front, and 1 in the bottom next to the psu for a total of 4. But dont know if taking off the sound damping material on top will let off to much noise. Also how well do the fans do with bringing in air with the front door close though the side vents? Not used to cases that have the front blocked off like that. Thanks
