Looking at the technical specifications the case really does look like the Define R3 has just been passed through the copier at 75% size setting. The dimensions of the case are 395x490x210 mm, so while it isn't the smallest mATX-case out there, it's still 50 mm lower than the R3. There are six hard drive bays, two 5,25" drive bays and four card slots (and one vertical one). For cooling the case comes with two 120 mm fans, but can be equipped with four more if needed.
