- Looks
- Built very well
- Sound dampening
- Lots of space for cables
- Included fans(2) are nice
- basically nothing
This case is very easy to build in, came with all the screws needed, and looks very clean.
overall if you're choosing a case that you want to be quiet, this is a very good option.

Spacious, plenty of options, built like a tank, cable hiding
USB ports flat on top [dust], filter for PSU at the back, wider than most cases
Plenty of things to add on if you wish like fans. Many drive bays including 2 under the mobo [but need to install before anything else], cable management hides most cables, tough design. Like the spot where you can add an additional USB bracket without losing a card bay. Keeps dust out. One set of 4 drive bay rack can be removed.
USB ports are vertical with no protection from dust, can choose light around power button for power on or disk activity - not both, rear filer is under the PSU at the back - hard to get to if you don't have access to the back, wider than most cases - because of the cable management.

Sound dampening. Nice exterior/interior finish. Solid quality construction.
Front door is a little flimsy and removing the front dust filter is a bit of a nuisance. Nothing major though.
Very nice looking case with a solid construction. Lots of sound dampening all throughout the case. Removable HDD cages that can be oriented in different directions. Open back plate for easy cpu cooler installation and flexible rubber grommets for easy cable management.

Silent Design
Good airflow
Nice Aesthetic
Filter removal
My case is almost completely silent. It is well designed in almost all areas except for the fan filter removal in the front. It requires you to pull your fans slightly out and which can make the filter difficult to get to. Otherwise great case.

Good case overall
Nice design
Quality build
Very tight clearance between the motherboard and top exhaust even for a 2x120 radiator and fans
Overall the case is of good quality, impressed with the flexibility and construction of the case. Many options for fans mounts and lots of space for good cable management.

The only drawback is the top vent of the case. It's very tight between motherboard and an H100i radiator. It fits, and thankfully they allow you to mount the radiator a bit offset (away from the motherboard tray/backplate) to allow a bit of space between the radiator and the motherboard

Experience: 2 Months
Alot of options for this case
Nice and heavy so it won't move
Grommetting internally for cable management is very nice
Lots of HD bays available
Mounting of SSD drives on the backside is a bonus
The window is a nice, adds something for this machine to really look at!
Really can't find one.
An extra fan would be nice to round out the front, but at this price definitely worth it.

Will be using this case for a long time to come

Really is silent, the thing devours noise. all the minor parts are included even a little metal socket to attach the brass standoffs for the mobo.
only comes with six zap straps "zip ties" twenty or so would have been nice
Good chance this is the last case ill ever buy.
Over all quality is outstanding! all steel with a molded plastic front bezel. all the internal parts are steel even the HDD/SSD trays.
I moved the rear exhaust fan to the front filtered intake and will just have filtered intakes blowing in and in turn the pressurized case will stay dust free longer. minor chance the psu will have problems with its filtered intake on the bottom of the case trying to push against the other fans so I removed the two top sound proof covers to allow for less restricted exhaust from the case. I may toss a corsair 100i on the top later but for now I'm more then happy.

Incredibly quiet
Great Looking
Fantastic Value for Money
Easy to Build In
Putting a water cooler on the front mount isn't so easy.
Moved from a Corsair 600t to a Cooler Master HAF XB as I was looking for something smaller and quieter. The HAF XB was a dust magnet due to being such an open design. After pouring through review after review I settled on the Define R4 as the new home for my components.
I wanted something that was going to be decent for cable management, would handle liquid cooling (more on that in a minute), easy to build and change components in, and would be quieter than what I've had in the past. This Define R4 ticked all the boxes.
This is easily the quietest case I've ever built an OC'd system in. I have an i5-2500k running at 4.8 GHz with an H60. The H60 with push-pull SP 120's easily mounts in place of one of the included 140mm fans at the back of the case, allowing me to have both 140mm's for intake at the front. Everything else stays sealed up, and the machine is running at about 34 dB at the exhaust, 32 dB at front intakes with ambient room noise at 30 dB.
I impulsively ordered an H100i to replace the H60i, deciding to mount it on the front, as Fractal's own videos say that a 240mm radiator will fit up front. I had to remove both drive 3.5" drive chambers, which wasn't that tough, but found that the H100i will only fit if you run push from the front or push/pull, as the hoses aren't long enough to reach from the processor to the front mounting point. Though Linus says pull is his preferred method, you'll have to deal with a little extra dust to mount an H100i in this Define R4.
Additionally, mounting the H100i to the removable plastic fan casing at the front can be a bit of a chore, as you'll only be able to mount the front two 120mm fans at the center points to the plastic casing. I'm sure Fractal will address this on the R5 in the future, but for now I'd just suggest mounting your fans to your radiator with short screws and a narrow screwdriver for the front-mounted fans to allow easier mounting to that fan casing in the R4.
Other than learning the trick to mounting the H100i, and THEN having to return the H100i (another story for another review), my experience with the Define R4 has been incredible, and I would highly recommend this case to anyone who wants to build a clean-looking and quiet system.

Aesthetics, silent, built in window
A lot bigger than I expected
Amazing case overall. Being used in my first computer, I did not know what to expect for a case. Turns out, it's A LOT bigger than what I expected. The only reason I got this instead of the Define mini is cause of the window.

But really, since it's my first case, I don't have anything to compare it against. It just works.
