That kinda sucks. What is the purpose?

i should come with some screws extra and u might be able to fit a rubber spacer.

Those rubber spacers don't work half as well as the full rubber screws. Even if they did, the Corsair screws are only long enough for exactly 3 threads to screw into the case. There is no room for a spacer.

Ah, sorry, I'm talking about for the front panel, to add a card reader or something like that that is 3.5", not internally.

Hey guys, i am planning to buy corsair 500R case, and with it i want to buy a CPU cooler. My CPU is i7 920 2.67Ghz currently, but I plan to overclock it to ~3.6Ghz+.

So I see a lot of you here got corsair's Hxx series, and obviously H100 is best but it's little expensive + got a lot of problems from what i've read. What do you think is it worth buying H50 or H70 or H60? They are all very similar from looks. Or maybe it's just better to buy a good air cooler, like Scythe Mugen 2? But it take so much space.. Thanks..

Obviously but they cost much more. For price of H80 I can get noctua NH-D14 which is better than more silent. What about H60 with dual fans? Will it be able to cool my cpu with 3.6Ghz?

I got my intel i5 2500k on an h60 with 2 fans and It stays below 60c and its OC'ed to 4.2ghz

That's really cool, so looks like second fan really adds some cooling, because from reviews i didn't see such low temps. And btw why do you recommend me H80 or H100, if your H60 is really good? biggrin.gif
