Fractal Design Define R4 Mid Tower Case Review

Fractal Design Define R4: First Look

First off let me start by saying I have not been a fan of too many mid tower cases that have come out lately. The reason why is now that most of our components are so large along with many of us doing custom loop water cooling, it is hard to find a case that caters to both. Either you have to sacrifice water cooling, cable management or even top end components. Fractal Design on the other hand has managed to design the Define R4 roomy enough to handle all aspects of a high end rig. The Fractal Design R4 can handle 2 way SLI, a custom loop, great cable management and extra components without cluttering your case. I was pretty shocked when I first unboxed the Define R4 to find the treasure that laid within.
