Hi, I bought a 400R recently and bought a COUGAR CF-V12HP fan to add on as an additional top exhaust but I'm having trouble figuring out which screw to use to mount it. I tried out all the screws that came with the case but none of them seem long enough. I'm also wondering if the long screws are meant to be used for adding top fans.

In the meantime, this is what I managed to do till I figure if I need to order some custom screws. I used the long screw and this other screw that came with the case. Not sure if it's stable or safe, or if it will even hold lol.

Any ideas or suggestions would definitely be appreciated. Thanks! thumb.gif

The fan itself should have come with a set of 4 relatively short (+/-½") wide thread pitch flat top screws that you would feed through the top grills hole(s) and into the fan shroud(s) hole.
Do your self a favor and partially tap the shrouds holes with the screw prior to attaching it to the case to make sure that they run true, because that mesh top is sort of thin and can warp under pressure.

Looks like the fans included screws are silver, either rummage through your spare computer parts looking for some black ones to use instead, give them a hit with a can of black spray paint, use a Sharpie on the screw top, or go buy some replacements at your local computer shop.

Nice to see a blue and white theme. Reminds me of a few years back when RoG wasn't mainstream yet. tongue.gif

Do those Deepcool UF120s push a lot of air? Our stores sell more of those fans than all other fan products combined. -__-

Hey gang! Just built a new system in a 300R. It's a nice box, very roomy. I'm enjoying looking through this thread and seeing how you all have built yours out and what you have put into your systems. I didn't go all out but built something nice and quick, but without gaming in mind.

Anyway, I am posting to figure out a solution to getting the front USB 3.0 ports working. My MB does not have a 20-pin USB 3.0 port on it. I know there is the corsair accessory kit available on their site. I was considering getting that. What I would really like is a sort of wrap around cable that will allow me to go around the back and plug in to the USB 3.0 ports on the back of my MB/case. Has anyone found anything like that? I saw them use one in the Newegg How to Build a PC video, but he says it was taken from a Rosewill case.

What side of the pond are you on, NA or EU?
Other vendors offer similar kit.

N America. I've tried searching. Oh and I found a PCIe card that will provide a 20-pin port for the cable coming off the front of the case. It's like $30 though.

It is a convoluted way of going about things isn't it...either adding a card or resorting to a USB3 Y adapter, plus the required extension cords to go the distance to the rear end, luckily, the 300R has a pass through on the Right Rear that will allow it, if you go that route.

Just further incentive of upgrading your motherboard in the future.

I have two these deepcool 80mm cooling my tiny Silverstone Sugo case. They are quiet, throw around a lot of air, and for some reason are pretty cheap in Japan ~7 usd. I just purchased a Corsair 400r so I was looking at getting a few 120mm deepcools since they are only ~9 usd.

I looked at a review of them and they don't have the best static pressure so how are they for cooling your h60? I have pretty much the same thing, antec 620
