I believe Newegg has about a month exclusivity with the 500R.

I went with black because I dont have anything near my PC that white would match with, so it would be out of place... OCD again i guess?

The 500R should start showing up in other etailers in about a week or so and in retail about a week after that. Retail always takes a bit longer due to the distribution methods and going from store to store.

Any ETA on the availability in the UK? The 400r is available but not the 500r.

What I am evicting my system from.
IMG_08451.jpg

I hope to transfer my Swiftech MCRQP220 rad and my EK Supreme to the 500r. The measurements say all is good im gonna be doing a exhausting radiator design aka pull. All the other fans will be blowing in accept the rads fans one thing im trying is mounting the rad into the top 120mm screw slots and screwing two 140mm fans in the secondary wholes provided.

Lol with all fans setup as intake and the top currentlt open the air is already exiting the top.

Both 400R and 500R are nice looking cases indeed, only con I see is the front panel with both holes for both 120mm fans I dislike the look of it they should of made it all open instead.

Okay so I got my build put together, sorry the pictures took so long to get (sorry, phone quality). Overall, I really like this case! The rubber grommets , the sturdy shell, and the black powder coated interior make it a great case! Not to mention, it’s a good size mid tower as well, plenty of room for all components + future expansion.

I do have a couple complaints, however. First, when I took the case out of the box, TWO of the removable 3.5” drive bays were in at a slant. Ok, no big deal I thought. Upon further inspection, one of the “handles” on the drive bays was bent and had wear marks. As I attempted to remove it so I could straighten it, the handle broke off! With almost no pressure at all. The second bay I was able to remove and remount, although it still has a slant on the bottom side from where it sat. I just feel as though the drive bays could be made more sturdy, almost felt like cheap plastic. One other complaint, the back case cover was fully screwed on, but not aligned with the case – the bottom was about a half inch in the air! Luckly, when I removed that, I was able to put it back on successfully and nothing appears to be bent / damaged.


I’m not normally one to complain, and although I think this is a good case for my build and it does have all the features I like, I just feel as though someone didn’t take their time assembling / verifying the case was ready to go before it was packaged. Another thing I’m not too keen on right now (although has nothing to do with the case) is my Corsair Nova 2 SSD. It just has issues shutting down / multi-tasking. Again, that’s not this topic.


Would I suggest this case to anyone else? Heck yes, in a heart beat! Please don’t mistake this post, I still really enjoy my case! If I had the chance, I would probably go back and purchase the 500R instead as it looks like no one has any issues with those.
