Just finished my build in the R4. So far fitting all the cables in the back was an ordeal.

I mean I did not spend too much money on it but that was the idea when I purchased it. I guess I can wait til I get everything and go from there. Its all about thinking smart. I appreciate the input and definitely will look at the switftech.

hey, your build is very interesting.

the fans of the radiator in the front are in push/pull? or just push/push? how good are the temperatures?

Was it easy to change out the LED? I don't want to break anything and I assume its held with glue?

Thinking about using a arc midi r2 as my next case for my haswell build, my switch 810 is nice but its only air cooled and its just way to big.. but i needed a case that would fit sli with a weird spacing pci-e lanes at the time (my motherboard had terrible spacing so i needed a full tower.)

I got some questions
1) Does the black finish seem to be pretty good? Is it durable? Everything match? My switch 810 there are very noticable differences from the metal to the plastic on the white version, and my old CM 690II got scratched very easily.

2) How big is the window? I read through the thread and it seems the R4 window fits the midi r2, but I have no clue if either look different.. in some pics the window seems small but I can't find any good pics of a case filled with parts. Could someone post up a picture?

3) How good are the dust filters/easy of cleaning? Sadly the area I live in sucks, its a dirt road and literally everyone in my house tracks a large amount of sand/dirt into my house its impossible to keep my cases dust free.

I'm looking to fill one of these fractals up with a new i7 haswell cpu, gtx 780 or sli gtx 770, swiftech h220 cpu cooler, 16gbs of ram, a new ssd and two mechanical seagate momentus XT drives.

I really like the look of the R4 but I really don't understand how it can cool effectively, with the front panel being blocked off doesn't this severly limit the "cool" air flow? I know some good static pressure fans can still push air but isn't just pushing a much smaller amount of air?

My thoughts exactly. I assume swinging the front door open on the R4 gives a good increase in airflow for when you really need it, and keeping it closed when your not killing zombie hordes makes for super silence.

Welcome to OCN!

Thanks for the Welcome hope to be water cooling the R4 soon. Could I post a parts list here and get some advice from you guys. Or is that done in
another part of this forum?
