Hey guys,

Just picked up a 500R in white! I'm looking to purchase a Corsair H100 system in the near future, seeing as so many people in this thread have it. Are there any reasons why I shouldn't, or are there better alternatives?

Just be aware its fans are noisy at times when on full load, although this shouldn't be an issue unless performing heavy overclocking. Also there is a bug in the units which causes them to buzz a little on some power supplies, I still need to organise shipping for my RMA and its a pain in the ass, try get the newest stock possible. Dont get me wrong, its a great cooler that will rival most, the only drawback in my books is sound, although it shouldn't be an issue.

Go ahead and add me! Heres a quck pic of my 500R

btw I'm pretty upset I don't really have the $$ to build a loop right now, but I've been doing a lot of thinking and came up with a way to fit a 2nd 240 rad with zero modifications.
if you remove the front fascia, any thing you might have in the 5.25" bays, and then you will probably have to remove the the front control panel... you should be able to slide down this 25mm thick rad where the front fans are. Alternatively you could try to removing the hdd cages and try to squeeze it up from the bottom, but it think it would be easier the other way.

it should fit snug (if it really is 25mm) and have the inlet and outlet siting in the bottom 5.25" bay. You can then reasemble the front of the case and a set of 20mm thick Yate Loon's should fit b/w the case and fascia.

Thanks! Noise isn't such a huge issue for me as my house is always noisy anyway.

You mean in push/pull? I've read somewhere that it's not possible without modding. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Put some LED stripes on the top and it's finished thumb.gif

Try to replace it with the same from Corsair or with BitFenix Spectre Led 200 mm.

You probably don't need the third fan in the front. Other looks awesome thumb.gif

Impossible without modding. Another option: try small Scythe KazeJuny fans at the bottom, only 1.2 cm or something like that...

When I get time i'm going to tidy it all up, buy new fans, paint that aluminium bracket and find a place to hide that cold cathode. Build log is here

depends on your mb i guess but it will not fit with most. For it to work you will have to have the 2nd set of fans under the grill and both the rad and a set of fans inside the case which is about 32mm in height. Maybe better luck with some thin fans?

the h100 is 25mm and fans are 25mm thats 50mm
from my best guesstamite you have about 40-42mm clearance inside thanks to the 8 pin cpu power header and also most dimm slots for the ram.
some people have jerry rigged fans inside with zip ties but it isnt exactly ideal.
slim fans fit inside with the rad for most people but they have to be high static pressure fans. i dont know off the top of my head which fans. sorry.

scroll down to the bottom.

You were right to try to correct me though because I meant to say 52 not 32.
