Do you mean the thing that costs about £150 ($250+) ? Perhaps I'll steal the idea and build it myself. If I can find some good radiators for cheap smile.gif

I got the Black Windowed Define R4 for a great price.

Thankfully it didn't come cracked, or damaged, or with any broken cables. However...

The area where the power supply is mounted, there are 2 little raised bumps. One is significantly higher so my power supply is not flush and can only be mounted with one screw. I don't know if they cut the metal wrong or something when making the case.

Did anyone else have this problem?

I am considering returning it for a replacement. frown.gif
bump.

didn't bother sending it back because shipping would have been too much due to the weight. Probably as much as the case itself.

Did anyone else have this problem.

Thanks

Contact Fractal Design, they may just send you a new case. I contacted them because my side panel doesn't sit flush. I asked for a new side panel to see if the problem was with the panel, but it's slight tolerance issue with the case itself. It's not a big deal to me, but I'm sure they would have sent me a new case if I pushed a little. They've replaced fans (one arced when I started it), the fan controller, the pedestal feet, and a side panel, all with no questions asked. The CS can be a little slow at times, but they take care of their customers.

Get rid of all your current fans, get Gelid Silent 12's (120mm) and TY-147's (140mm) for the case fans (go all intake on front/side/bottom - so that makes 2x 120mm's on front and 2x 140mm's for side and bottom) and SP120 Quiet for the H80.

Gelid Silent 12 - $9.99 @ Amazon: [2x]

Thermalright TY-147 - $13.99 @ SuperBiiz: [2x]
http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?p=FAN-TY147
(also available $16.99 @ Amazon)

SP 120 Quiet - $14.99 @ Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007RESFM2/

BTW, the TY-14x fans are 140x150mm, so if you take that make sure it will fit (for side and bottom it should be fine). smile.gif

I have an issue with air flow in my R3... I want to go quiet.

Here are my fans

2x140mm (one blade came off one of my fans so i prefer only to use one)
2x 120mm (stock fractal)
2x 120mm (corsair stock H80)

Currently I have 2 140 in the top (want to remove), the HDD rack has been removed, and I have the fractals in the front, the corsair fans are on the H80 and its pulling air from the case. There is negitive air flow at the moment, this needs fixing, i would prefer the H80 to be pulling air in for the rear but no biggie if it cannot.

I have a H80 cooler and running a 4.6 OC and temps are a sitting around 30 ~ 35º C and getting up around 80 ~ 90ºC in the worst case scenario. (In by dining room with 16 other people 4 rigs 6 Laptops, 4 Xboxs and some random test bench.) It has only over heated once (H80 died) and I would like to keep it this way.

So I am putting it in the hands of you guys (pros) to help me find the best solution for a quiet, cool and positive pressure air flow case.

Thanks guys!

Said LAN (some people not present)

Re-seat H80i. Something is wrong with your cooler set-up if you're getting such high CPU temperature, or you're using too high of a voltage. Secondly, if that does not help, get some fresh air for the radiator by changing the fans to intake instead of using warm air from inside the case. You may be able to stretch H80 tubes to fit the radiator at the front of the case (I have my H100i there).

Thanks for the help, is there an alternative 140mm fan for the roof? because with my mod I am going red and black...

This was going to go on the inside of the H80 to give a nice effect...

Other than that i will pick up some new fans and reseat and change the direction of the H80 fans.

Thanks Guys

When I saw your post I immediately remembered BBEG having the same issue.

I might have found a second issue too that I'll look into today regarding the left side panel screw holes...
