A new generation of style! The Define R3 case is reaching new heights in combining stylish, contemporary design with maximum functionality and noise absorbing features. The minimalistic, yet stunning front panel design, fitted with noise absorbing material on the inside, creates an aura of exclusivity.
The patent pending feature ModuVent™, in which you can choose whether to have side and top panels open or not, makes the case appealing for users seeking optimal silence, as well as the performance hungry ones.
The sleek black interior is matched with pre-fitted, dense noise absorbing material on the side panels, efficiently absorbing noise and vibrations. You can fit an astonishing total of eight(!) hard drives into this case, using the user friendly HDD-trays. All painted in a nice white color and using black silicone mounts. PSU is mounted in the bottom of the case, with a convenient pull-out filter beneath it.
Are you one of those users always ending up with a case full of tangled cables? No more. The Define R3 offers a convenient and good looking way of hiding them away. The motherboard has rubber covered holes in which you can easily route the cables behind the motherboard.

One of the best cases I have built a computer with it fit noctua's big cpu cooler and 6950 xfx perfectly with spare room too. So easy to build a computer with this case. Very good quality for price.
Considering the amount of money I paid for this, I expected much more. There were some bent pieces on the side panel, it wobbles, and the sound proof foam was cut poorly. Overall a good case, I guess I just got a bad one out of the factory.
Switching to a case that is designed to be quiet made a huge difference in noise level. Not only does this case look great, but it has a quality feel to it as well. I had no problems installing my massive cpu heatsink (the Thermalright Silver Arrow). I like that the hard drive trays are made of metal instead of plastic.
This case is a BEAST. The color is solid and hasn't peeled off at all after 7 months of usage. The front panel is stylish and the USB ports are located at the top, making for easy connection of iPod, blackberry, headsets etc. The side panels were a little tricky to reattach though.
This case looks great once constructed but does not feel as solid as cheaper cases such as the Antec 300. For the price you pay you are much better off getting something that feels much more solid and less flimsy. I wouldn't buy this again unless Fractal Design incorporates much better materials including paint that does not chip or peel.
