I finished this build a week ago using the 600C. I'm really impressed with this case.

Anybody did that recently?

Wouldn't recommend it personally. Much better cases available for less money.

Hi, i'm thinking to buy a 400R for my second rig. Now, i already have a great 450D from Corsair, and even if now it's a bit small (damn watercooling obsession biggrin.gif) i like that is modular and i could detach the HDD cage. This 400R seems not to be as modular but i'm paying 30€ for this case and i cannot find any other good option out there...
Now, i would like to remove that cage since i'm planning to use 2 GPU inside that case and my "spare" NH-D14 so i need quite a lot of space. If i'm right, the only way of doing that is to drill those rivetts am i right?
Moreover, is there any option without any saw to shorten the 5.25" bay? I mean, 2 are more than enough for me biggrin.gif

Now the tricky part, i would like to use some 3.5" drive as well, maybe 90° rotated, in this way i will use less space for the drives, any suggestions?

Not sure how similar it is to the 500R but this was my solution.

I've bought that case, and, surprise, that guy didn't know the model.
Turned out to be a damn good 500R! biggrin.gif
The only issue is one plastic HDD cage missing (i have 5 instead of 6), one screw missing on a pcie cover and one cover and the USB 3 to USB 2 internal adapter. Apart from that, 30€, and it's brand new, not a single scratch!
It's really good, i falled in love with my 450D but i have to admit that this one has some good options too
