So, here is my updated system, enjoy!

I'm thinking of replacing the Cooler Master R4 fan´s with the new white non-led 140mm NZXT fans's since I don't want too much light and the color is different than the LED 's on the NZXT strip and the MSI board. It's more purple. They push alot of air but I think they pruduce too much noise, even on low rpm. The corsair fans on the HDD cage start to make noise above 60% rpm, beneath they are very quiet.

And take of the dust filter from top cover thumb.gif (its blocking the air flow)

No I don´t agree with that, my fans are intaking cold air to create positive pressure, the dustfilters are doing their work since my room can be pretty dusty. But I may turn the fans around when I mount them on the buttom of the radiator so they push the air out, then I´ll remove the filter.

Here are some pictures of my new build... my first attempt at building from nothing... first time I have not bought something and just upgraded pieces here and there. Apparently everyone that buys a white 500r puts the same stuff in them... lol

I may have missed it in the thread but can an H100 fit inside the top of the case with fans as push? I know fans can be mounted under the mesh above the top plate (that's where mine are).

It looks like it might fit but hard to tell.

if you motherboards heatsinks are not to tall then yes. I own the msi p67 gd65 and it just fits with the h60 mounted uptop. also u can do push or pull just not 2 sets of fans

in this video is the h100 is mounted in there. Might have to forward. o.0450

as you can see the ram and heatsinks barley clear it.
