Product Overview The Fractal Design Define R5 Blackout Edition 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 Blackout Edition case reaches the highest level of silent computing through strategically placed dense sound-absorbing material, ModuVent™ fan vent covers and finely tuned all black Dynamic Series fans.

The Define R5 Blackout Edition was designed with configurability in mind, accommodating up to 8 hard drives and all modern graphics card. Should you wish to expand your system with water cooling components or more fans the layout can easily be configured to meet your demand. Features • Optimally designed for silent computing, 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 all-black 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.
• 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 provides secure mounting of the left side panel, yet grants quick and easy access to the system.
• Three-speed fan controller is strategically integrated in the front panel and supports up to 3 fans.
• Define R5 Blackout edition is available with window side panel.

Reviews
Fractal Design Define R5 Blackout Edition Mid Tower Computer Chassis, USB 3.0, Ultra Silent Design, ATX/mATX/mini-ITX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and versatile. Bought this to house a 360mm radiator which I wanted to front mount, most other cases only offer top mount for 360mm radiators with a few with options for front mounting but then you lost 3.5" hard drive bays. Not so with the R5, super flexible mounting options and easy to build. Very well built, thick noise dampening coupled with my water-cooled CPU make this a very quiet case. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and quiet Nice case, plenty of room to get everything in. I did struggle to tidy the 4 pin power cable to the motherboard. Maybe it was the cable not being long enough from the Corsair RM650i PSU. Other than that the extra width gave me plenty of room to hide all the cables. The two SSD mounts behind the back plate are a good idea and I used both. Because of the cabling from my PSU I had to mount them half way off center because the cables would not reach. I think this is because my 3 hard drives and two SSDs need all the available Sata power connectors at the extreme ends of the cables, This made powering everything interesting. May be best get some extenders if you plan to fill the case up. The configurable cages for all the drives is a most excellent design. The trouble is there is space for loads of drives! Too many, so you'll be needing to remove a cage or two anyway. Two huge quiet fans included. I was a bit miffed I couldn't plug the fans into my motherboard because of the non-PWM fans. and have their own controller built into the case. Solidly built and quiet. reversible front door too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A top class case This is probably the best case I have come across. Beautifully made, well sound-proofed, solid and easy to work on. The case is slightly wider than most and this allows for better cable management and use of large 3rd party CPU coolers. Extremme flexibilty for placing of fans and coolers make it a dram to use. Only downside is the positioning of the two SSD mounts. A good idea but practically difficult when attaching the power supplies as only the straight connector at the end of a power cable will fit - hence two cables needed if you fit two SSD. A minor point which does not detract from the use of this case.
