Features [ Edit | History ]

The Fractal Design Define R4 is the latest in the Define Series of computer cases offering minimalistic and stunning Scandinavian design fused with maximum sound reduction, configurability and functionality.

The Define R4 side and front door panels are fitted with dense, sound-absorbing material making it a benchmark for noise reduction. Moreover, the Define R4 accommodates up to 8 HDDs, all modern graphics card sizes, and multiple ventilation options - including two standard Silent Series R2 hydraulic bearing fans - to keep internal components at optimal temperatures.

For ultimate functionality, the Define R4 features a front interface with USB 3.0 and an integrated three-speed fan controller behind the front panel door.

Key Features

  • High density noise-reducing material for an optimal silent case - To achieve a high level of noise reduction, material with mass should be incorporated which is what we strive to achieve with the dense bitumen used on the side panels
  • Patent pending ModuVent™ design allowing the user to choose between optimal silence or maximum airflow
  • Top HDD cage (5 trays total) can be rotated 90 degrees or removed for additional airflow or to accommodate long graphic cards up to 430mm in length
  • Three-speed fan controller is strategically integrated in the front panel and supports up to 3 fans
  • Two Silent Series R2 fans included, featuring hydraulic bearings contributing to a longer life expectancy – Silent Series R2 retail fans will now come standard in all cases
  • Wider case body that allows for improved cable routing behind the motherboard – now 26mm wide
  • New tool-less front fan holder makes switching front fans a breeze
  • Two SSDs can be mounted on the back of the motherboard plate

easy to install

Solid Built Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Quiet 140mm fans
Discreet monolithic looks
Cons
Heavy
Summary
Overall this is one of the better cases I have owned in a long time. Bought it as a NAS since it has 8 HDD bays. Newer reviews say R5 is a refinement of R4 but having built the system, it is tough to flaw it as the quality is well-made.

Experience: 2 Weeks

Its Build is Solid Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

-Dust Mitigation
-Solid feeling (panels are all lined with sound dampening material)
-Build Was a pleasure to work with.
-Doesn't feel flimsy or weak like cheaper cases out there.
-LOTS of Options !
-LOTS of Room. (All the HDD Trays are removable for incredible space configuration)
-Case is pretty darn quiet. You can still hear the fans because the case still needs to breathe.. Having said this.. Compared to other cases this is quiet.
-Lots of Vibration mitigation (From the legs of the case to the HDD trays) everything has anti vibration) amazing!
Cons
-MUST install SSD First (if you're mounting them on the back of the MB tray)

-Wire Grommets are flimsy and fall out to easy when pulling cables through.

-Case weighs a lot for the size (mainly due to sound dampening)
-Room for over all improvements..
Summary
Just Buy the R5...... ( I have used both the R4 and R5)

The R4 is a Great case for all the reason I mentioned in the PROS, and if you get it for less than $100 Then go for it.

But...

THE R5 is considerably better for these Reasons:

-Better Fan Assembly on the front of the case ( R4 is clumsy feeling)

-Better Bottom Filter (Runs the whole length of the case) and is NOW accessed from the front of the case NOT the back.

-SSD's now have trays they mount to on the back of the MB Tray which can be removed for install. (Instead of having to install them RIGHT to the motherboard tray before the MB goes in) *cough*R4 !

-HDD Blue LED light has been adjusted so it doesn't blast as much light everywhere (annoying if you you have the case in your bedroom and you're trying to sleep) Other then that I never see the light.

**Fracctal really listens to their consumers and has since Improved the design over the R4. **

4 Stars (I Just bought the R4 and the R5 for my son. His install was A LOT easier) based on the improvements.

Nice Case; but. . . Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Roomy, lots of space to hide cabling. Included fans are quiet even at full speed. Solid build quality.
Cons
Not as quiet as I would have thought.
Summary
This was a great case to build in. Lots of space to route cables in behind the motherboard back plate. The removable HDD cages were a nice addition.

The only downside is the sound dampening material. When my GPU heats up (XFX RX480 GTR 8GB, 2fan cooler) and the fans begin to wind up, it doesn't actually dampen the sound that much compared to when the side panel is off. At idle its quite good, so maybe I'm just expecting a bit much. I have the case fans at half speed and the top vents are closed (just front intake and rear exhaust).

However, it is substantially quieter than my old case when things are heating up, so I'd definitely recommend it.

One of the best Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Easy to work in lots of space, Soooooo quiet, very good cable management, very sturdy, quality made.
Cons
A bit expansive when not on special but I still think its worth it. Only two fans included for a case at this price.
Summary
I have built many systems over the years and this is one of the best case I have seen, especially when you get a deal like I did at 95$ there is simply no better case in my opinion. Its super easy to work in, the case is super quiet when closed. Nothing feels cheap. I really like it.

Pros

Extremely easy to build in
Quietest case I've owned
Cons
LED light is crazy bright
Summary
It's a very well designed case that I would absolutely buy again. I had to disconnect the power light to be able to sleep in the same room as it, but beyond that there's nothing I'd really change.
