My H100 is exhaust wink.gif but I see where you are getting at. While the 'filter' Corsair includes is not very robust or efficient, its still functions as a dust filter.

For what its worth, the filters Corsair uses are pretty similar to the ones Coolermaster uses in the 690II ADV. They aren't too effective in that case either. Both can keep out pet hair extremely well, so its got that going for it.

glad to see you understood where i went biggrin.gif
i only have a few complaints about the 300r/400r/500r cases:
1. the 'fan controller'
2. the lack of actual filters on the side and front panels. the front isnt so important because its 2 fans and you can use 2 seperate 120mm filters. the side panel on the other hand forces you to 'think outside the box' or buy from an aftermarket company that charges more than ,IMO, its worth.
3. i cant remember my original #3 gripe but i'll add this instead: they couldve made the 500r 1/2 inch taller to account for cpu 4/8 pin connectors being so high that it makes it difficult to put both an h100 and fans inside the top to use a push/pull config. yeah its a nit-pik complaint for only a small amount of people but those people will agree.

Looks great! Welcome to the site, I love the window and lighted floor! Do you have a build log or better pics by any chance?

Hi, I have the same case you you guys and I do also love it... I'm new here and will post my rig and fix my profile as soon as possible.

For the meantime i have questions:
1. i replaced the default heat sink of my i7 with Corsair H80, but due to my excitement, i forgot to remove the old grease, any pros and cons?
2. i'm having the default fan of the case plus the inward airflow of H80 and another inward from bottom (i guess total of 5inwards) next stop is 2 outward from top,, should it be ok?

thanks.

with not removing the old paste, what are your load temps ?
if you have the top void of fans, the fans you have will just push the hot air out the top of the case through the unused fan mounts.

Hey guys, I noticed that the USB 3 front panel cable is rather heavy and stiff on my 400R. I may need to send my motherboard back soon (P8Z68-V/GEN3). Any advice on how to remove the connector without damaging the pins? I am worried because of the cable being quite thick and stiff that it might need a little extra force to remove, which could damage the pins (I've seen friends bend pins really easily from doing this).

Is there a 'technique' I should use to do it without causing any damage?

here it is.. your assessment will be very much appreciated..
(as said, H80 push-pull at rear going inward the case set at medium, one inflow from bottom, 2 inflow from front, one big fan at side, nothing installed yet at top)

that is not load temps. that's idle. download and run intel burn test and see what the temps are.
