I was looking for the ideal case to get. I would prefer something not too bulky but something that can fit big parts. The Fractal Design Define R4 seems nice. From the videos I have noticed that it's been recommended as a case that has good sound damping.
My question is whether it is better to go with the normal case http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4blo
is there no performance difference (in how loud the PC gets) if I wanted to get the case with a window panel https://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4blw
It is not a big deal but I do like the aesthetic of the window panel but I would prefer a quieter PC over a pretty PC. Would the window panel ruin some of the damping because one of the panels would no longer have the foam that the normal case has?
I ask all of this because I've only built one PC before and never thought about this stuff but I have a microphone in the same room as the PC so the noise can be an issue.
- Thank you in advance.
