Im tempted by the 500r. but has does it do with cooling? I have a core i7 920 d0 coming which i want to oc. I know the chip can do 4ghz i have a corsair a70 to pair with it. I am getting a geforce 470 sli setup so heat will build up. I hear the case can take 9 fans alltogether? Can you remove the front 2 fans and add 2 140mm fans? Can you have all 140 fans in the case? I have a budget of 90 quid for a case and this case seems to be the best but i can also get a nzxt phantom in this price bracket also, the bittech review shows it has very good cooling.

140 fans everywhere but the front.
6 x 140 fans and the 2 120 fans in the front. mine cools my setup nicely.

So only 8 fans in total? I hear you cant remove the front dust filter for cleaning.
post #1794 of 4609
it isnt a filter. its plastic with small holes punched in it simulating mesh. youre best buying a filter or making a filter. plenty of post in here for that.
yes only 8 fans but, 2 x 140 at the top and 1 x 140 at the back(stock is 120 also) will pull all the heat you can make if you use 2 x 140 in the side panel and 1 x 140 in the bottom with 2 x 120 aftermarkets in the front. remember, you cant use the factory 'fan controller' on fans you install. the controller is nothing more than a proprietary plug with 3 pins. 2 pins for power( 'fan controller' switches low med high) and the 3rd pin for the led power. it is the only problem i have with these cases.
corsair, again i ask :
why cant you give us a REAL fan controller we can use instead of lying to us ? proprietary fans and controller. lol

seriously though, its a great case in my opinion and many agree

Sounds good. I take it their is a way to get dust filters for all fans for this case? Seriously corsair still no using dust filters lol. Only thing bothering me a bout the case is the white front fans, i was looking for a black a blue theme.

aftermarket filters only.
i used an air conditioner filter cut to fit on the side panel. i had already used 1 before on my bro-in-laws build and someone here posted they used on their case.
actually i do have a second " dont know why corsair. do tell why " - that is the simple fact the mobo mounts 1/2inch too high in most mobo installs to allow you to do push/pull on an h100 mounted in the top. fans are inside with rad out or the fans outside with h100 in. hit either the cpu 8-pin plug or in my case, the memory slots hit the fan. oopsies.

Can't wait for the case to arrive. Anyone here ever had a cm storm scout? How does the 400r compare?

I had (well still sitting next to my desk) a Storm Scout, but I have a 500R. The first thing I noticed is the extra room inside, everything fits more nicely, and the amount of airflow. My only complaint with this case, is the cable management on the back, it looks more roomy than the Scout, but I still have do lean on top of the panel to get it closed LOL, and the panel touches the SATA power cables from my HDD and SSDs, and sometimes get disconnected while removing and installing the side panel. Other than that I love it.

Hey guys,

I got my rig built 2 weeks ago, I was just wanting to double check if I could set the stock fans level on level 1 to lower the fan noise. Or do you guys have a better level for me to set it on?

Optimal Level Recommendation of;
CPU FAN
Rear FAN
Front 2 FAN
Side FAN

Thanks
