Should I purchase the Fractal Design Define R3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Just wondered what you all thought about the Fractal Design Define R3 case?

I currently have the Midi Lian Li in my sig but fancied a chance and after doing some looking/searching this caught my eye.

Linky

It appears to get good reviews for cooling, plus I like the clean simple looks of it (plus the cable routing options and the ability to remove the CPU cooler backplate is a bonus over the Lian Li, and its black inside as I would like to put a Window in it and the Silver of the Lian Li looks cheap )

What do you guys think? Thanks

I'd rather go for their Arc case, personally. I absolutely HATE doors on the front of a case. But that's just me. *shrug* I've heard good things about the R3 as well. I don't think it's a bad case, I just wouldn't buy it simply because of the door.

I got the case a few weeks ago and it is very quiet on low fan speed and fast and the noise damping is realy good. i managed to fit all my cables behind mb tray. The routing holes are in good spots excluding 4/8 pin conector. Quietest case ive used before
