Some customer reviews of Fractal Design Define R4

Most helpful reviews

Rob,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I loved the design of the case. It's well built and feels like it should cost more.

Mounting the motherboard, hdds etc was easy

Even with the majority of the fan slots not in use, my i5 6th gen, 980ti, 16gb ddr4 ram run at ridiculously cool temperatures, meaning that the case is practically silent
Bad points:
The room behind the mobo for cable management is limited, especially if you mount an ssd there.

Manual is pants
