hey guys,

I'm looking to put my old system into a new case, with a new psu, since the old one died.

I've been doing some research and thought Fractal Design Define R4 would be a good bet.

So does anyone have reasons not to buy this case, or have better suggestions?
I don't want to spend more than 180 euros on the case.
I'm also looking to upgrade the rest of my system once I have enough cash. Therefore
I'd like a case that's both ATX & mATX compatible


CPU: i7 920 @ 2.66 Ghz
Ram: 6gb ddr3
GPU: ati HD 4650
Chipset: Intel x58+ICH10r (mATX)
PSU: Seasonic X-760 or X-850

I like Fractal cases, if you like its design go for it. I own a Define XL.

the R4 is a great case to build in. nice big gromments and lots of space in the back. not to mention the silence and the great front IO options. its my favourite case
