Can someone recommend which case to choose between BitFenix Ghost and Define R4. As I see the boxes have very similar noise and cooling characteristics (R4 is better on 10% but noisier on the same level). But Ghost is equipped with the dust filter on the upper fans – I think this is good solution if PC does not work 24h (and I suppose not only dust can drop inside from the top holes).
But R4 looks more reliable and resistant to the vibrations from fans and HDDs (13kg of 58dm3). When Ghost is full of plastic (8kg of 55dm3).

Define:

-more silent (no top opening)
-has better fans
-better cooling
-more mass, less vibrations

If you plan on using a 240mm rad, the Ghost is the way to go. If you don't, i see no reason to go Ghost at all.

i had a chance to hear both fans, the 140 Bitfenix and the fractal. I liked the fractals better@12V, had not the chance to drill them down, but YMMV.
