StrataWhite - "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." i think about it

Just got everything installed in my 500R today, also installed two Scythe S-FLEX 800RPM fans from my old case into the top of this, the 200mm fan is however very loud frown.gif I was hoping for a fairly slow, thus quiet fan, however this is not the case, I recorded the different soundlevels when using the included fancontroller, it can be seen here:

As I mentioned, with the fans as "push"... Therefore they would be inside the case under the rad.

I already have fans mounted on top as exhaust.

are you talking push/pull ? i thought you meant rad out under mesh and fans inside.
fans/rad/fans will depend solely on your fan thickness but im guessing not.

Bulky rad on a weird place without any modifications to the case, fitting it on top wasn't an option. I'm pretty happy with the result so far. Now I'm waiting for an EK block, to put on my GTX680.

That's awesome. The fans mount on the outside of the panel? I much prefer that look on clean, sharp cases like these.

Thanks, I'm no person for flashy builds either. The fans are on the backside of the radiator. Those are better visible on this photo, while leak testing:
