Great case broken front panel headphone jacks

Ed, Amazon

  • Summary: Got this case as im a bit picky on sound ect when i got it i was amazed of how well build the case was for the price. I only had one problem with it and that was that one of the front panel jacks was broken which did not really bother me as i use a internal sound card.

Superb Case

Billy V, Amazon
4 September 2012
  • Summary: This is a superb case for a quiet pc. I agree with another reviewer that the instructions aren't great but if you have any experience in building pc's you will be fine, if not then I'm sure you will work it out. The case is very quiet especially compared to my old one.

  • Excerpt: The Fractal Design R3 is a nice case that allows you to optimize for sound or cooling performance much like other cases but you get a bit more control through the use of foam panels.
  • Pros: Great concept for sound proofing/cooling, price, smart front panel design
  • Cons: Internal hardware needs to be chosen carefully to fit, door

Good but flimsy headphone jack

Snrub, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a positive review hence the 4 stars. I won't cover the positives of the case since you can read them in the other reviews. It's a great case overall. My only issue with the case and the reason I am docking it a star is the front panel jacks (for headphones, mic etc).

Decent case, but not great

R. Beedall, Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: I perhaps had too high expectations given some of the glowing reviews I had read. The pros include its decent size, 8 hard disk bays (which I'll probably never all use), sound proofing, and a non-descript appearance (I'm in my late 40's!).

Classy and quite

Nyarlith, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: Bought to replace a ageing coolermaster case that was becoming far too noisy for watching movies and playing games (my xbox was quieter and that was saying something). looks really nice and is whister quiet. I can only hear my noisy old power supply now.

Fractal Design R3 (USB 3.0) - Black

Endre Peterfi, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: I read a lot of reviews before buying this case an although I found it on a website specialized for quiet PC's I still ordered this case from amazon because of the lower price. Same goes for the PS I paired it up with : Fractal Design Newton R2 650W Power Supply ATX PSU.

Great looking case

Joshua F., Newegg
22 August 2012
  • Summary: In my long history of PC cases, I can definitively say this is the best one I've had so far. It's more compact than most mid towers, but plenty roomy inside. There's no HDD status LED, so I just hooked up the power LED to be the HDD status LED.
  • Pros: - Not as tall as most mid towers - Very quiet - Beautiful inside and out - Well built
  • Cons: - Rubber grommets for liquid cooling don't stay in place. Sort of annoying, not detrimental. - No HDD status LED

Easy to use

Martijn d., Newegg
29 May 2012
  • Pros: - Easy to build a computer in this case, even for a first-timer like me. - Nice fan controller - Fans are silent at a low setting (the lowest is fine for me) - Versatile - Good quality construction
  • Cons: - I wish the drive tray came in 2 parts so I could remove one. Seems to obstruct the airflow (no egg deducted because I don't actually have a problem with controlling the temperature, using just a Hyper 212 Plus and the two case fans with a fanless power supply and fanless graphics card). - I wis...
