Got myself a forkless CAAD4 frame :mrgreen:
Question is, which fork to use with it. There's the odd CAAD9 fork floating around, and lots of Synapse ones. Both have the "big crown" for lack of a better word, with about 5cm of diameter, where the internal headset bearing race is seated. The CAAD4 used an external headset though, those forks usually have a smaller crown.

Will a newer (internal headset) CAAD/Synapse fork work for the CAAD4, or what other budget oriented fork would you recommend? Thanks.

Any 1 1/8 fork with the right offset (43mm I believe), should be OK.

The CAAD 4 frame takes an external threadless headset - Cane Creek S2 was the original.

Ok, thanks.
Will it look very weird, using a fork with a crown for internal headset, though?

it might be an optical illusion , but the slice forks on later models appear to have a beefier crown so it merges into the larger headtube better.

The original fork had a non-integrated sloping crown. Possibly hard to find now. An integrated fork won't look too bad IMO and you probably don't have a choice.
