    So, I finally got around to replacing my Antec P180 with a new case...

    I bought myself a Fractal Design DEFINE XL R2 Pearl Black, it' very nice! The cable management is good, it's very roomy and wow it's quiet!

    I'll post a pic at some point, but yeah... Just thought I'd tell everyone. :banana:

    A buddy of mine has the Fractal Design Define XL and its a quality case. It lives up to its XL name but the cable management is great and is silent. My next case will be the R4.

    Yeah, I went for the XL R2, it's fab! Big as well, I didn't think to measure it before I bought the thing!!!

    Yeah I got the R4 as well, didn't think I'd need the extra space with the XL, but who knows.. Actually the space is perfect but.. if you'd need to add a 320mm rad or something in the future it might be difficult.

    220-280 should go fine I think, as much as I've read or heard.

    My Antec P180 was damn near silent once I replaced the cheap Antec fans.

    My R4 is near silent,the sound proofing padding works well.

    high quality fans make a big difference in case noise

    Starting to like the Fractal cases alot, most certainly my next case will be something like this. Congrats on your purchase.
