Corsair 550d or fractal design r4?


Nov 9, 2012
I am looking for a quiet case in the price range of the two mentioned above. So which one would you rather have, all the details such as aesthetics, design, noise reduction, space, cooling abilities and price all count. If you wouldn't choose either please make a recommendation, but it has to be a silent case! Thanks!

The inside of my case look like this,

CPU: i7 3770k-300¥
Gpu: Galaxy 67NPH6DV5ZVX GeForce GTX 670 GC 2GB-350¥
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77-180¥
Ram: G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 32GB-110¥
Hard drive: TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB-120¥
Ssd: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB-160¥
Air cooling for CPU: noctua Nh-d14-70¥
Power supply: SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W gold plus-100¥
Monitor: ASUS VS239H-P Black 23" 5ms ips-160¥
Optical drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST-20¥
I have already bought all these components...



That is an incredibly tough decision. Both cases are excellent - you can't really go wrong. I have two Corsair cases and they are very well constructed.
I do not have those cases but different cousins of mine do.I built their rigs for them.I honestly like them both. I agree you can't go wrong either way. ;)
id get the R4. i have the 550D and i already broke the door clips (mainly because my brother somehow kicked the front door). and the bottom gromment isnt that big

for the components, the 840 SSD is pretty bad. its tier level would be under async nand budget SSDs

the p280 is a bit big for my taste and not that silent
