A 240 rad. biggrin.gif Clean build. How's the PSU treating you? I know the fan on that thing is pretty loud.

Just bought a new Fractal R4 case Titanium, it looks great except for one thing - the front USB ports (see pic). Is this a common occurance with this case or do I have a dud?


What do you think is wrong with it?? All looks fine to me....

Look at the USB 2.0 ports. Clearly not clipped in place as well as the 3.0 ports.

 

I have a Midi r2 (different IO) but I will say that my headphone/microphone ports are not solidly connected to the case and move around. Literally the only part of the case I don't like. If anyone else can confirm/say there's doesn't move around then I may complain to fractal and hopefully get a replacement IO panel.

Wait what? Your headphone/microphone sockets don't move around at all?

post #9287 of 16284
My Arc Midi (version 1) has crooked usb ports also. Didn't bother to send it for RMA because I didn't have other case to replace it. Other problem is that there's something wrong with the hard drive cages, when it's fully loaded some of the HDD's get scratched on top. I plan to ditch the cage altogether and get some Scythe Himuro HDD silencers or something similar. Too bad it's riveted in instead of screws, gonna have to buy a drill to take it out.

So this 'minor defect' is normal amongst R4 owners? I thought this was a premium case?

I wouldn't really call it a defect exactly. I have a Midi R2 and mine are the same. (usbs and front audio.) Either the way they mount it or how they make the front I/O is clearly not all that great. Though I don't really use the front I/O that much so it doesn't bother me.

Upgraded to a Arc Midi R2 a ~6months ago. The computer has been on 16/24hrs a day, everyday, barring holidays/random things.


Took the panel to see if it needed any cleaning and lo and behold.....there was nothing to clean....










Not the best pics, but you get the idea. I never realized how much dust those filters keep out
