Trying to decide between the R5 and S cases. For the most part, I think the S would be better suited to my needs, as I can't imagine ever needing more than 5 drives, and I have no desire for an ODD. Plus, it's currently around ~$30 cheaper than the R5. However, I have no interest or desire to do water cooling and it seems like a waste to get a case specifically designed around a feature I don't want or need. And, on the shallow aesthetic side, I prefer the door mechanism of the R5 front panel to the sold pop-off plastic panel of the S.
So. Is the Define S still a good buy if you don't ever plan to do any water cooling?
