I went on frozencpu and got myself a 3mm led with motherboard pins and just took out the old one and put in the new one. Very simple process but you might want to superglue in place since it tends to get loose.

To get the LED out of the power button in my Define Mini, I had to carefully wiggle it for quite a while. It's a very, very tight friction fit once you remove any hot-snot/glue that's covering it.

I solved my LED problem by disconnecting the Power LED from the motherboard. I'd rather have no light than that ridiculously bright red LED on my case. tongue.gif

I'd say chances are quite slim, as the R4 is almost brand new. it isn't even a year old, atleast from I remember.

I'd say we're looking at new mini cases. or maybe an Arc XL.

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?

1) I have an R4, and the finish on it is very nice, it doesn't scratch all that easily. I have managed to get a few scratches, but no major ones, and I usually take my computer to a LAN once or twice a month. The paint is somewhat nicely matched, I find the black on the front just a little more grey-ish than the rest. the steel panels are perfect.

2) on a Arc R2 and an R4, it goes from right above the PSU and up to the top of the motherboard. it does not show the hard drives, and does not show optical drives. And also, just look back in this thread, you can find pretty much anything with a Fractal case.

3) when I clean mine, I just take off a filter, and blow it out, usually I blow quite hard (lol) and I try to be as thorough as possible. or I use compressed air and blow it out.


as for the intake, I have an ASUS GTX660Ti, overclocked to 1075 MHz core, and 1702 MHz memory, and i keep an ambient temp of about 20, and I usually never go above 75 degrees Centigrade / Celsius with fans at maximum 60% speed, and two 140's in the front, stock Fractal ones, which I run at 7 volt.

I thought about that. I didnt want to kill the white. I am going for Yellow/Black/Gray/White for the Pittsburgh Penguins. I got some thinking to do now lol.

What about if I just create a custom cable and solder one of these on the end and place it up near the current one
