    Fractal Design Define R3 just poped up on their official website.

    4 colours, the typical 3 from the define r2, and a totaly white version, called Arctic White.

    Some of us like our cases to look sleek and understated, instead of the mess of LEDs and fan grills that typically plaster every 'gaming' case.

    Sticking LED's in fans and such make me puke, its like seeing under-glow on a sh*tty old fiesta.

    Should be very soon. I've been promissed one by fractal design staff when they get them in stock at their europe HQ, which they said would be early september. :thumb:

    EDIT: I didnt read 'full tower'. Don't know when thats expected, but it does look freakin' awesome.

    Looks like it needs more space for a long graphics card.

    Can a 5870 fit in that?

    I'm pretty certain it would fit in the R2 so I would be surprised if it didn't in this one...

    It looks exactly the same as the R2, it still has the annoying screwed in dust covers, I see very little or no point to this revision. I have the R2 and it is an amazing case but suffers form some major floors like the inability to easily mount a radiator, very limited space to route cables behind, screwed in dust covers, no reset switch, cheep fan controller that easily breaks. epic fail!

    I think they added a reset switch, and improved the cable management (although it may not mean behind the side panel).
