good 120s should have better airflow. you could also get a side panel from a 400r if you want the mesh smaller with the 2 120s or 140s

Use the screws that came with the fans, normal fan screws. The long screws are for mounting fans to the hdd cages or 140s up top.

According to the BitFenix specs, the same ~45 cfm... But if we try to check the 23 cm fan, it makes 110 cfm airflow drool.gif So....we should try to know it( I'm using 2x 120mm BitFenix 1000 rpm and my 3-way SLI still alive biggrin.gif

It's just a standart problem.... You should buy fans with screws in the package for the top and bottom. In my build i used H100 short screws for fans at the bottom side and standart fan screws for the top side. It helped to mount H100 without the "sliding fans".

Fans wich comes with the screws: BitFenix (only 120 mm and only LED models, black screws), Noctua (silver screws), Corsair (as i remember....), CoolerMaster (some models, silver screws)

you should have gotten the long thin screws with a very small amount of threads in your 'accessory box' when you got the case. those are for attaching 140mm fans in the top or 120mm fans to the hdd cages.

Guys, I have a question about temps.

Here's my spec:

CPU: i5 3570K (at 3.8GHz - "Turbo" - VCORE: 1.092)
Heatsink: CM Hyper 212 EVO
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H
Memory: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600
GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW
PSU: Corsair HX750W
Case: 500R (w/ stock fans)

Idle temps: 32º-34º (at Bios).

Temps after some time surfing the web, watching youtube videos etc.: usually 34º-37º (many times jump to 40º-42º, 44º-47º for a few seconds).

Temps after some time gaming: 54º-57º (according to HWMonitor).

Are these temps normal? Shall I be concerned and search a way to decrease these temps (buying additional fans etc.)?

max safe temp for an i5 is 80c+ so if your under 60c your well within safe operating temps and shouldn't be a concern. Are those temps higher than your old case? How are your gpu temps?

This case is a pretty cool (temperature) case but if you want it to be cooler or are concerned you can add fans to make it cooler. If money is a concern cooler master sells a 4 pack of quite 120s super cheap. You can add 2 as top exhaust, an intake on the bottom next to your psu, and add one to a hard drive cage for under $13

Alternatively you can add whatever fans that fit in your budget and give you the sound vs performance you desire.

Hi guys I'm new here! Here's my rig with my Carbide 400R

Some of the parts are old but still working. I need to change the cpu cooler, the psu (colorful wires annoys me), new gpu (my gpu is a gtx 275), more fans and maybe a quad channel ram. Wrong choice of buying a single channel. mad.gif I'm still learning rolleyes.gif

Thanks, man!

BTW, with Prime95, these are the max temps I get: 68ºC (Core#0), 72º (#1), 71º (#2) and 67º (#3) in about 30min.

GPU temp is max of 74ºC gaming/stress test with custom fan profile. I can do better though.

Is that ok?
