That entire 3pin controller is useless then if I dont use corsair fans. Time to buy some adapters. Corsair had to make things complicated and make it exclusively corsair fans connect to controller I just want power to the fans.

actually they designed a simple way to control the leds in the fans without affecting the fan speed. you can easily use those connectors to power different fans, you just have to trim the "nubs" off the fan's connector.

Where did you get the rubber grommets for the 300R?

Maybe George can help out with this... But does anyone know if it is possible to get a spare door for the 500R? On Corsair's site there's stuff for the Obsidian and Graphite cases but nothing for Carbide cases.

I'm thinking about cutting out one of the doors and making a big window. But I don't want to do it unless I know I can get a replacement if I screw it up.

I wonder if anyone can help me...

I have just got a 500r, and while I know the h100 does fit without fault, i have yet to see any push pull set ups in the 500r with the h100.

Is this possible without having to leave teh top grill off?

Thanks,
Tiny Iron

Thanks,

Maybe you could fit the fans under the grill as designed and then fix the rad and another set of fans inside the case? It depends whether it will clear your RAM/mobo.

this although i read in another forum you get at the most 45mm clearance between the case top and your motherboard. that 8pin cpu socket is a clearance killer.

*edit* actually the case and mesh top were designed for either pull with fans outside or push with rad outside. ( though corsair thinks you should pull or push into the case. not a very good idea if you want the coolest case temps)

I was thinking that, But I think it will hit the heatsink at the very top of the motherboard.

Yeah I want it pushing out air, I think im just going to go with the two fans pushing out, I might just buy some fans with more cfm to compensate.
