This is a good option you're looking for a case that won't make too much noise, but will still let you show off what's in the case.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Easy to build in
This case gives you lots of room to work with. The 3.5” drive panel can be moved back, sacrificing the drive bays, and leaving you with 2 2.5” brackets in the back, where there are some velcro straps and plenty of space for cable management.
Pro Ample space for cooling
If you’re looking to make your case as quiet and cool as possible and the included fans are not doing the job, there's enough space to fit a 420mm radiator at the top, 360mm in the front, 240mm at the bottom, if you’ve moved the 3.5” drive bay panel back.
Pro All air intakes have dust filtration
All 3 possible fan intake spots are covered by dust filters and the top can be completely opened up with a modular panel, that can either be a dust filter or a solid surface, if you don’t plan on using the top fan mounts.
Pro Toolless panel mechanism
Both of the side panels work on a tension mechanism, so you don’t have to unscrew them, they just pop off with some pressure applied. The front panel works on a hinge and the direction of the swing can be changed.
Pro It’s pretty quiet
Front, top and side panels are covered in sound dampening material, helping keep the case quiet. Even at 100% included fan usage the case produces less noise than an average library at around 35dB.
Con Pretty heavy
The Define R6 comes in pretty heavy at 12.4 kg / 27.3lbs.
Con Tempered glass stains easily
The entire side panel is tempered glass and there's not a lot of room to grab it by, so fingerprints on the glass are very likely to happen every time you want to open the case up, since you also have to apply some pressure to remove the panel.
