  • Summary: If your looking for a great case and great price the Fractal R4 is totally recommended
  • Pros: Great case for anyone who wants to keep these desktop cool and quite. Fractal designed cases also ahve great cable management to the point where the insides look very neet and decoide of any cables. Fan controller works fine
  • Cons: A bit on the heavy side for a mit atx tower

A very nice case

Robert A., Newegg

  • Summary: I replaced a Silverstone Fortress FT02 with this case because the FT02 was too large for the space I had available. I was surprised at the amount of room in the R4, even in comparison with the cavernous FT02. The R4 has a smart layout that makes good use of the available space. The FT02 cools a bit better but the FT04 is more compact and is an excellent case for almost any build. You can add extra fans and the case has plenty of room for a radiator at the top.
  • Pros: Very well built, high quality case. The fan controller works well, the fans are reasonably quiet, and the sound dampening is very effective. Plenty of room for cables on the back side and the holes are located right where they should be for neat cable management. Plenty of room for hard drives and optical drives.
  • Cons: The case allows mounting two SSDs flat against the back side by providing eight holes under the motherboard. This makes for a neat installation, but you have to remove the motherboard if you need to swap out a drive later. They could include two brackets to hold the drives.

Fractal Design Define R4

Andrew C., Newegg

  • Summary: All in all, this case is amazing. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: I can't say enough positive things about this case. - it's extremely well built - it's very easy to work in - all the room for cable management you could want - it's wide enough to fit even the largest of air coolers - it's gonna help silence all of that coil whine from your gtx 970 - it just looks sexy
  • Cons: 2 small gripes. First I'll probably never use the behind the motherboard ssd mounts. They just aren't practical, but you really don't need them. I do wish it came with 2 front 140mm fans instead of one, but I'm sure this helps keep the price down a bit. Neither of these minor complaints are enough to knock off an egg.

Not really a silent case!

Chau T., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: Should have bought this case a long time ago.
  • Pros: I can sleep when it is on at night. Less noise. Strong enough for me stack another computer on top. Everything is easy to setup. Cable is long enough for my mini itx.
  • Cons: There is no way to have a silent computer unless it has no fans ... I can hear everything at night in the house. Heat is there if I run a video conversion.

Great Case!

Greg L., Newegg

  • Summary: I should have read the dimensions, I went off reviews online and didn't pay attention to the actual size of the case. It's bigger than it looks in the pictures. This isn't a knock on the case, totally my fault for not actually looking at the size specs. But, if you are looking for a smaller mid-tower case, this isn't it. It is quite wide (which is great for cabling!).
  • Pros: Plenty of drive space, lots of room to manage cables, nice finish, QUIET! Putting together a computer in this case was easy, and fast. Once done, if you use all the available ports for routing cables, it looks clean and has great airflow.
  • Cons: Blue LED is a bit bright, and the case isn't what I would call lightweight. Not worth an egg off though.

Awesome Case

Chris N., Newegg

  • Pros: Bought this for a decent gaming build. This case has so much HD storage bays I could store google on it. Kidding - but it has a ton of bays. The case is SOLID. I cant hear a thing from it either. Very well thought out case with great cable management. Love it.
  • Cons: Manual is a bit shotty with not very good indication of what some cables are.
