Front is not center, but the fan mounting holes on the case itself are correct. Why Fractal has done this, i do not know, but its kind weird :\

Nope, they are not, i have mounted my fan on the case itself, not the plastic thingys. Works great, and there is no problem using it. Well, i have cutted my grill a lot to make it more airflow-efficient. tongue.gif

Not overly happy with a discovery made about my R4 today.

Down by the PSU, between it and the rear case wall, one of the rivets in the case floor sticks up enough to prevent the PSU from snugging up against the back wall and screwing in easily. I'd wondered why my X650 had a tough time fitting, and now I know why. I'll have to do a little trimming. (Pics as soon as my replacement Fujifilm cable comes in.)

I imagine if you contact Fractal Design they would be glad to assist you with an RMA

Ye, the plastic is making it look off. Here is a picture without mesh and dust filter from the front and from the inside.

From the front, mounted with the plastic Fractal mounts:


From the front, mounted on the case, not the front panel


From the inside, mounted with the plastic Fractal mounts:


Why the **** did my images get tilted?! They are not tilted on my phone or computer mad.gif

Thanks, but I will have two radiators.

I could use some ideas where to place those radiators and where to put extra case fans smile.gif.
Thanks!
