CES 2014 - Fractal Design did not have much to show off at this years Consumer Electronics Show, but it did unveil a new Black Out Edition of its popular Define R4 full-tower PC chassis. Fractal says that the decision to go black on black with the case was made after overwhelming demand from Fractal Design fans.

Everything inside the Black edition is... well... black, with the layout staying the same as well as the external aesthetics remaining unchanged. Fractal says that instead of releasing a new design, they focused on bringing to market what its customers and fans were asking for.

Fractal was also showing off a few boutique builds from XioticPC and Puget Systems. The Puget Systems rig features some uber-quiet Tranquillo CPU coolers from GELID Solutions and the entire PC was almost inaudible. XioticPC's two custom builds featured custom paint, and some high-end components that showcased Fractal's cases quite nicely.
