- silent, lots of cable management room
- has a window
- dust filters for PSU and front intake fans
- inconvenient SSD mounting brackets
This is pretty much a must purchase if you're planning on building a silent PC. It has an easy to take off dust filters and intake fan mounts. Bought this for $90 on sales.

Great paint, good sound cancellation, good air flow, good cable management.
Only minor complaint would be that I wish there were a few more grommets for cable management, but the amount that are in there is totally fine.
Got it on sale for $80, probably the best case you can get for that type of money. Really good quality overall and no major complaints.

Solid, sleek, cable management is easy, quiet, etc
paint seems fragile, got here with a few really minor paint dings.
Simply a great case, transferred my system from my Antec 302 to my Antec 1200 v2 to this case and man, it was much much easier. Paint is tough, fans are ok.

Experience: 1 Days
Awesome case, great looks
Slim top panel, so so cable management, once you take out the bottom cage you can't realign it to allow more airflow when there's a bottom 120mm fan.
I just grabbed this case yesterday at NCIX Mississauga and transferred my system from Haf XM. I like how it looks and the added noise dampening materials is a bonus. The only thing I do not like is the fact that the top panel isn't as thick so they need to make beefier top panel. I intend to add noise absorbing material to the areas around the fans and all the way to the 5.25" bay.Also needs better fans due to the fact that the ones supplied are noisy when mounted to the top and even the front. Time to put my Noctuas to work. Other than that it is a nice case.

- Quiet
- Looks great
- Well thought out plans
- Space can be tight for water cooling ( no 280 rad without modification)
I replaced my ageing but reliable p180 with this.

Build quality is great, metal everywhere and the front door is made to look like a gloss metal. The dampening on the sidewalls and door are great.

What I like most about this case though is the flexibility and foresight. The bottom harddrive cage is removable / customizable. You can unscrew it from the bottom and shift it to the back of the case by about 10mm or enough to fit a water cooling rad, even the H100 in the front, or move the cage all the way and cover up one of the 120mm fan vents. The harddrive cage mounts on any 120mm fan slot in fact.

The power light is red, which may bother some people. Looking at how it's assembled, it's screwed in individually which makes for an easy case mod to get a new light in there. Most other cases glue their components there, but here, each component is screwed in separately.

The honey comb mesh you see around all the fan ports allow you great freedom in mounting just about anything there. You can shift a 240 radiator up top and mount there as well.

Mnpctech did a great review from a modders point of view, and disassembles the case in the 25minute video

-Performs well
-Lot of drive compartments
-Plenty of wire management space
-A bit on the heavy side
Bought this to replace my Antec 300 and there are some considerable differences. For one thing, much heavier compared to the 300 but partly that is because of the padding on both the R4's panels to dampen the noise. I can barely hear it running at times and only when gaming does it ramp up. It's wider so there is is more room at the back of the motherboard for those who want to have a nice looking case without the hassle finding places to hide their wires.
