Product Overview 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. Features • 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.

Chassis Airflow
Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling
Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and fun to build in! I've built quite a few PC's in the last few years, and I have to say this is one of the nicest and easiest cases to build in. The velcro straps behind the motherboard tray as well as over a thumbs width of cable management space makes it a dream to route cables back there. I basically used around 6-7 cable ties in total just because the velcro was more useful and clean looking, overall it didn't take much work to have a relatively clean looking build. Pretty much everything on the case is tooless, you will probably need a few cable ties and a screwdriver, although as stated below the standoff screw tool really sucks. My one gripe about this case is the plastic tool they provide for attaching to the standoff screws... NOT A GOOD IDEA! The plastic starting morphing and becoming harder to screw after about 4 screws, making it a task to attach the standoff screws to the tray. I would recommend finding a tool that fits the screws to be on the safe side here. In conclusion the case is great, I can fit the huge Noctua NH D15 cooler in there as well as my GTX 770. The SSD mounts are a nice touch although my SSD has a plastic shroud making it not possible for me to use. The case overall is decent at keeping the noise in, however if you turn the fans up a little you will hear it, there's really not a huge difference if your jumping from a non silent case, it is there but its not much. The fan controller is a nice touch, means that I didn't need to go out and buy one. 01 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Case While not as good in build quality as an all Aluminium case, Fractal Design have done a superb job of combining functionality with good aesthetic design. Love how the sound proving make this case so much quieter than my old one, but the side panels do feel a bit thing and flimsy, and can bow quite a bit during shipping transfer, as it happened to mine. Also instruction booklet can do with being rewritten or clearer pictures added, as I did struggle to make out how my SSD hard drive should be mounted on the hidden slots for this purpose. Apart from that, I do love this case, and it looks awesome in white. Now time to redecorate my room. What colour should I use? White? 10 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ATX Case for Buiding Purchased the R5 in white (no window) for a family member that needed a basic desktop PC. This case is so easy to build in and allows plenty of upgrade options, especially for extra drives. My relative wanted an internal DVD drive which I fitted in about a minute along with a card reader. You have the option to remove or re-orientate all the bays in case you wish to add radiators for water cooling. Popped a Corsair H80i on the rear fan and the end result works like a dream. As the PC will only be for basic operation this works fine, although you could easily pop a dual closed loop system in the roof and remove the corresponding top panels. This is the easiest build I have done. Brilliant case. The sound proofing works really well and the system is really quiet. 03 February 2015
