pc-illiterate and JCG are right, switch top fans to exhaust and bottom to intake,
will be better for your config

Hello Sirs, good taste you have.

This is my 500r. Currently missing a graphics card, because I sent my 7970 back to the store. During the RMA period, I've bought some watercooling stuff, including a XSPC RX240 rad and an EK Supreme HF Acetal CPU block.
At the moment I'm thinking of waiting for a GTX 680Hydro Copper by EVGA, or I'll get an Asus/MSI GTX680 with an EK fullblock.

400

Only problem with my case is, one of the front USB ports is broken. Should I just contact Corsair about this?

They have some of the best CS in the industry and have concrete warrenties. They`ll send you either a new case or part to replace it. Try finding Corsair George (Red Beard) here on the forums, he`ll help you expedite the process.

sorry
i just tried to turn the upper 140mm fan to intake, but the fan blade stuck on the head screw of rad.
because the fan 140mm and the rad size smaller, so the rad screw were in the middle of the blade
maybe there's another suggestion to make my case airflow better?
thanks

That was a reading comprehension fail on my part, sorry dude. I thought they were 2x 120mm, only just noticed they are 140mm. Maybe you can use some spacers between the case and the fan so the blades don't hit rad screws? It's very easy to make a spacer too, if you don't have a ready-made one ..

Try to remove small rubbers from 120mm case mount holes, if you didn’t already.
It should lower your mounting screws.
post #1287 of 4609
and small flat washers make excellent spacers and are almost free. they are free if you already have some lying around which most people do.

Hey guys, I was planning to buy the 500R. I had a few questions which I'm hoping you guys will be able to answer.

Does the side 200mm intake fan have a dust filter?

How is the quality of the build?

How good is the airflow of the stock fan setup?

How does the case handle the rear PCI slots? Tooless or Thumb Screws?

1. Nope.
2. Very good, no sharp edges whatsoever.
3. The airflow is ok imho.
4. The rear PCI slots secured with thumb screws.

Thanks for the honest reply.

I am not sure anymore. Not having an dust filter on the side for a 20cm intake fan seems like a design flaw to me. I could go for the Temptest Evo but it just doesn't seem to be of a very good build quality. Argh I'm so confused! What do you guys think?
