Define R5 - Definition of Silence

The Fractal Design Define R5 is the next evolution in the widely popular Define Series. Packed with intelligently designed enthusiast-oriented features delivering a silent case with powerful and expansive air and liquid cooling support, presented in a stunning Scandinavian inspired construction. The Define R5 case reaches the highest level of silent computing through strategically placed dense soundabsorbing material, ModuVent™ fan vent covers and finely tuned Dynamic Series fans.

The Define R5 was designed with configurability in mind, accommodating up to 8 hard drives and all modern graphics cards. Should you wish to expand your system with water cooling components or more fans the layout can easily be configured to meet your demand.

  • Optimally designed for silent computing with high density noise-reducing material throughout the case for maximum sound absorption, while not compromising on airflow and cooling capabilities.
  • Extensive water cooling support for a case of this size; housing radiators up to 420mm in the top and 360mm in the front.
  • Equipped with new tool-less ModuVent™ fan slot covers allowing the user to install more fans if desired or keep fan slots covered to maximize sound absorption.
  • Including two Fractal Design Dynamic GP14 140mm fans developed for superlative airflow while still maintaining low noise levels.
  • Maintaining a dust-free interior with the help of dust filters that cover front and bottom air intakes that are easy to access from the front on the case.
  • Newly configured front door with dual side mounting to better fit your work space.
  • Three-speed fan controller is strategically integrated in the front panel and supports up to 3 fans.
  • Highlighting 2 dedicated SSD mounts cleanly placed behind the motherboard tray that feature innovative new brackets delivering a tool-free installation and removal
  • The HDD cage system holds up to eight 3.5" or 2.5" drives and is more adaptable than ever, allowing the user to modify the case layout according to personal preference with more places to relocate the cages
  • The ODD cage can easily be removed to gain additional interior space; the area can be freed up to allow for increased airflow, to provide a new place for HDD cage mounting or to make more room for water cooling components.
  • Sturdy metal HDD trays provide excellent dampening features for the hard drives while providing better airflow through the cage with an updated, more open design
  • The new and innovative Quick Release System on the left side of the case

3* Not as good as they make out, but this is just what i found wrong
Reviewed by Matt on 10/02/2015
Brought this case last week after reading reviews and looking on youtube, finally got round to building it. Case quality is good feels sturdy, I have a 240mm Rad attached to the roof and cant fit the 2 out of the 3 roof covers back on due to the screws being in the same spot as where the covers clips back onto the case unless your willing to break 1 of the clips off where the screw sits. My motherboard has 2 usb 3 internal headers 1 right angle and facing up, couldn't connect to the super charger header due to the connection and wires protruding to far out and interfering with the Graphics card. Also loose the top pci slot as the ATX motherboard i have makes the graphics card use the 2nd and 3rd slots. couldn't use the stealth ssd mounts on the back of the motherboard tray as my 2.5 inch crucial wouldn't fit in them so had to put it in the drive bay. Theres more things i could say about the case but i don't have enough characters left, just be mindful if your looking
