Not sure what type of paint (other than canned spray) you used -so unsure if thinner or spirits will help, but there is always the store to bail you out.

still waiting to get any confirmation of shipping on my 400r. guess i shouldnt complain since its free.
post #1816 of 4609
I need help if possible. I just ordered the 500R with the NZXT Havik 140 cooler, and I was worried about clearance. The height is listed as 166mm, and I know the Thermalright Macho HR-02 fits the case, coming in at 162mm. I'm getting conflicting answers from every forum I've searched where people make rather 'uneducated' guesses as to the clearance. I cannot find an official clearance/height limitation in any documentation. Any help would rock, thanks.

all i can say for sure is , i had a 212+ and 120mm fans on the side panel. it fit with room to spare. it wont help you much because of the height difference but, the havok will fit for sure without a fan in the top spot on the side panel. i wont take a guess about clearance with 120/140 fans mounted. it should have clearance with the factory 200mm on the side though.
corsair screwed the pooch on a few things with the case but i think they remembered not everyone has stock cooling or the clc kits.

Cheers for the responses fellas. thumb.gif

The thing is, I've seen people's rig setups listed in their signature (on other forums), where they mention owning a 500r and a havik 140, but of course that doesn't take into account if the large side fan was usable. I gather that I will at the very least be able to get away with this combination (with the fan removed), which frankly, I can live with.

I plan on putting it all together with detailed measurement pictures so people can get a better sense of what they might deal with if they choose this route.
