May I know what mobo you plan on using for that build? So that I can look at its difference from the Sabertooth Z77, which is an example of a bad 8-pin connector location for the 400R+H100 setup.

I'm using MSI Z77A-GD65. Mine 8-pin is on the top left hand side. Which is quite bad location for H100. My mobo heat sink seem to be blocking the fan if I gonna put up h100 in my 400r.
Hope to see some solution around here. If cant guess I really have to get h80.

Kaivin, I just took a quick look at your board. It's very similar to the Sabertooth's 8-pin placement. I'm sorry but I can't think of anything right now to help with that issue. I guess it's either go for the 500R+H100 or 400R+H80.

Or consider some high end tower air coolers in that price range?

On the safe side I guess I go for h80 with my 400R. I manage to measure the space left isn't enough to fit h100.

Thanks anyway. Once I done up everything I shall join the club with my pics uploaded.

I'm looking in to see if the RS240 radiator will allow the top lid to fit on the Corsair R500 ? I want to put fans in the inside and try a push out.

It looks like 25mm fans will clear my Z77x-UD5H heat sink on the inside. I am hoping a RS240 radiator will allow the top cover to fit on the Carbide R500.

Thanks
