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

Pros
large fans
high quality included hardware
no sharp edges
quiet
good airflow
Cons
only 1 LED - no HDD indicator
blue LED
top HDD trays in both cages are a tight fit for standard-height HDDs
can't lock side panels
awkward fan filters
Summary
I'm using this for a NAS and so far it's very good, with only 1 or 2 small issues.

The upper HDD slot in both the top and bottom cages is a little too tight for most drives, they fit, but rub against the top of the cage. So far only the Seagate ST1000VN000 seems to fit well, being slightly thinner than most.

The fan filters could be a little easier to get at, and I'd like to have lockable side panels, but overall it's a very high-quality case with useful features and good design.

Shame about the blue LED though. That thing can be seen from the moon.

Pros
Very Sturdy
Quiet
Cons
Very large for a mid tower
Front Fan assembly doesn't feel as well built as the rest of the case
Summary
Bought this case for a new build and was looking for something quiet with easy access drive bays. Case feels very well built and is very quiet (I have not using the top or side fan slots so the dampening is still in place).

Pros
Quiet
Good looking
Well built
Cons
Very little to criticize.
Power LED is too bright.
Summary
The is my second R4 case. Very happy with it. It's quiet, solidly build and has an understated minimalist look that I prefer. The only criticism I have is that the blue LED power light is too bright. When the computer goes to sleep and the light flashes it's almost like a slow strobe light. I have to cover it with a piece of electrical tape to cut down on the light output.

Pros
Quiet, Sturdy
Cons
none
Summary
One of the best case I've purchased. Looks great at first sight. Nice finishing on the material. A very sturdy case with foams and padding inside to seal up and keep it quiet. Optional fan locations are covered with foams, which act as good insulation.

Pros
Removable/adjustable upper hard drive cage to improve airflow
When the front door is closed there is plenty of airflow
CD drive plates are easy to remove/reinstall
Overall good build quality
Great room for cable management
Control panel is easily operated and accessible
Cons
none
Summary
For money, this case is an amazing purchase! You can rotate and remove the upper hard drive cage inside to increase GPU space and increase airflow. Solid legs to support the case, no cheap rubber stick-ons. Once again, a great case for what you get

Pros
Beautiful, Silent, Lots of room, Easy to work in
Cons
Heavy
Summary
Great case, heavy, but if it's never going to be moved, then it's perfect

Pros
Easy to install, great cable management, and looks super sleek
Cons
None so far
Summary
When I read some reviews saying that the case came dented because of deliveries being rough on the box, I was initially afraid. The box did come in pretty banged up but the insides were pretty well protected from the packaging so everything was looked good.

Everything was easy to set up! Would buy Fractal again!

Pros
Nice and big, mostly metal. Minimal look.
Cons
Front USB ports are a very tight for some reason. The HD audio coord was almost too short for my mother board as a result microphone input through front panel is weird, had to use motherboard input instead.
Summary
The issues are not bad I can just use the motherboard input for microphone and USB instead. Just a minor inconvenience.
