Fractal Design Define R3 Black Pearl reviewed - Side Panels

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Stylish and versatile

 

The left side panel holds an optional fan hole (120/140mm) whereas the right panel is fully closed.

The left side is the so called ModuVent, which means that the company used removable seals to close optional holes, until you need to use them. This is how Fractal Design managed to make the case as silent as possible.

The following photo shows the sound isolation material in the Black Pearl. The side panels are tough and are easily taken off. They’re held in place by two thumb screws.

nice review, good description, nice decent quality pics, but what I'm missing here is a simple comparison to similar cases like Corsair 400-500R, CM 690II ect + noise and thermal testing, some charts ect. If someone read review he/she must know if it's better then others or not. About this case: it looks great,I'll get myself its brother FD ARCH which looks even better
