Fractal Design's Define R5 chassis is a generational upgrade to their quiet case series. The look and finish of the case has been changed compared to previous versions, which is most noticeable in the design of the top panel. The front door is now reversible and easier to remove, along with other small changes all around the chassis.

The new R5 retains a flexible design layout. There is support for two 5.25-inch external bays and up to eight 2.5- or 3.5-inch internal drives. Two quiet 140mm fans are included, with room to fit up to five more. The front connections are located at the top of the case, directly above the front door, and include two each of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports alongside headphone and mic plugs.

This particular version is 'White' in color. The entire exterior is white, with lots of black accents internally. The foam padding on the inside of the door is also black, which is the most noticeable non-white element.

This is a very nice case. It offers good cooling, several internal hard drive bays, along with built-in sound dampening material. This case is a couple inches shorter than most full towers, so if you are height restricted for your system, this may be a better option to consider. A downside to this case is that it has no 3.5" external bays, and just two 5.25" (DVD) bays. So if you would like to use a 3.5" media card reader, it will need to be placed in one of the two 5.25" bays, leaving just one 5.25" bay for a single optical drive.

I don't know what it is about white cases, but I like them. We don't regularly stock this particular one, though, as most of the time we use some form of gray or black. Fractal does a really good job with the Define R5, though.

We strive to pick the best cases which we feel suit the needs of both our customers and our assembly technicians. Does it look too flashy? Can we make this look neat? Will this offer us sufficient airflow for our higher end systems? I find the Define R5 is highly customizable to allow quiet configurations without sacrificing airflow or performance. The case itself is made of steel while the front is durable plastic. The white version does stand out more than the Titanium or Black versions, but it hold the same charm as the others and, as a bonus, it looks like a fridge. The Define R5 supports up to six 140mm fans and self-contained liquid cooling units, has sound dampening material on both side panels as well as the front door. The front and bottom grills of the case are protected by a removable mesh filter which catches hair and dust. The front door, configured for a right-hand opening but easily changed for a left-hand one, hides your optical drive bays and the fan controller for a neat and discreet appearance. At the top of the case is where you will find your power and reset buttons, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a speaker jack and a microphone jack. The case boasts some of the best hard drive cages on the market, offering durable and versatile mounting options. Fractal outdid themselves on this computer case and for the price this thing is a steal. To put it simply, this thing is pretty great.

Note: We have designed custom shipping materials for this case. Specially made foam and boxes provide superior protection during shipping! Click here for more details.
