Towards the bottom of the thread, I've included a pic of how I mounted the fans

I'll post new pics soon, got to drill a hole for the fan wires (have them sitting on top atm) Don't have my PSU though - sent it away to corsair a tad too hastily I think.

@ Invisible: nice window mod...

Is the plexi totally flat or a little bend to fit the angle in the side panel ?

Corsair customer service is awesome! I have purchased a couple of Corsair items for the pc I built my brother earlier this year, but never had anything personally owned until I bought the 500R. This case is top notch, and they have customer service to match. I had an issue I created myself, and Corsair went beyond my expectations with their response.

NH-D14 in a 500R doesn't even come close to the window fan.

i removed my side fan on my 500R today and covered the entire panel in sound deadening foam. I'm running positive pressure and I feel a lot of the air instead of passing under the gpu or through the heat sink was actually being forced out around the sides of the fan. so far gpu temp has decreased by 3C average over a 12 hour period of running BOINC at 100%. i'll try to post pics and more thoughts in my build thread later. You cant tell the difference from outside the case the window/mesh just looks blacked out now.
