Unfortunately that is all I have to work with right now. The back is actually open, except for that little top part you see in the pic. The exhaust from the back does get out and not trapped inside. The only air that gets trapped inside the cubby would be the exhaust air at the top. Never had any temp problems at all so far.

Thanks. Everything is working fine so far except for one thing. I have my 2 clear LED fans that were on the front of my 500R at the top now and the stock exhaust fan from the case at the bottom next to the PSU. Those 3 fans do not display the RPM's on my Recon touch screen. I can turn them on and off with the controller, but that is all.

Anyone else use the stock 120mm Corsair fans on a fan controller with a screen that shows RPM's? Just wondering if it is just those fans that will not display RPM's. The 200mm works fine with the controller and also my SP120 and Bitfenix fans.

I have added some new toys to my 300R.
I freaking love this little case biggrin.gif
Pics are from my phone.

LL

I added a high air-flow (REAL) dust filter to the front. Plenty of air still pulls through. I added it because a lot of fine dust continued to build in my rig. I have pets but still not really sure where it all comes from. I modded a house high efficiency dust filter fit between the front mesh and the regular dust filter.

I have managed to fit 2 Kuhler 620's modded to my SLI 470's. The top kuhler is mounted to the rear exhaust fan, and the second is mounted to the rear side panel fan mount. I keep working at the cable management, everything is free and clear just not extra pretty. A Modular PSU would be extra handy here. Fan cover inside to protect the goodies, this is where my dust filter pays dividends.

LL

300R stocked to the gills. My next 'wanted' upgrade would be to update the CPU cooler. The Xigy S-1283 is a mighty fine cooler and does a great job with my 3770k but I keep wondering if I could fit a Corsair H100 to the top just to complete the tubular look which is going on.

Side shot. A ton of heat likes to pour out of that radiator smile.gif

LL

So now the loudest thing in my case is surprisingly the power supply, that fan really goes to work now that I am running SLI.

550d - 8930057
fwiw i believe the 400r and 500r use the exact same ones

To better explain myself, i mean the preforated Bay covers (5.25" slot covers that you pop out when you installed a cd-rom etc.) I wanted to use the ones from the carbide series because they'll snap into place with just some like shaving. But i'm wondering if the 500r or300r uses a flat black paint instead of gloss black?

I'm installing these on my 650D, which the lower grill (where the 200mm intake fan sucks through..) is flat black color. it's not horribly off, but iw as curious if there was one before i ordered them from corsair smile.gif

Thanks!

I like my 300r just wish that it had more hdd bays or was cheaper 80 is to expensive when you can get cases like the illusion that come with so many fans and 8 hdd places (i think going off of memory atm)

If you look at my pictures a couple posts up that is a 300R.
The bay covers are not Gloss, but they are not straight flat either. More of a flat black with faint metal highlight.

Now Corsair has no excuse to not make a Window Panel for the 400R & 500R.

If you really need more hard drive caddys/trays, just head on over to the store.
