i want to build a PC that's visually appealing as well as great performance but i can't decide between the fractal r4 and white phantom. they both look great in different ways. what would you guys suggest from previous experience?

There are several variations of NZXT Phantom. With that said, if noise level and durability is the more important factors in your decision process, vote Fractal Design Define series.

I have the White Define R4 with the side window, and I love it. It's a very quiet case. High quality, made out of metal (only the front facade is plastic because you can remove it fully). A lot of people love the Phantom series, and it's quite popular to be sure, but I like the solidness of the R4 a lot. I also like that you can fully remove the drive caddies.

I would say Fractal. Having worked with NZXT and Fractal Cases, they both are very good and you'd be happy with either one, but in the end, Fractal cases are incredibly solid cases, great quality!

I'd say Fractal as well. A small bonus when ordering a R4 is you get a small work out every time you try to move the beast. Very very well built case.
