And there does exist PWM splitters.

I love my PWM fans. I have 6 fans and I'm only using two headers on my Mobo. No need for an external fan controller, I can control them from my desktop.

Nice to know that a H100 can fit in the 400R; I might not have to buy a new case after all.

Hello everyone,

I bought my Carbide 500R case couple of weeks ago and like many of you, I'm very satisfied with this unit.

Below: My complete setup with NEC PA241w screens.
I don't know if anyone had problems with getting the right stand for the main unit. I was forced to make my own one from parts I got from local DIY shops in Ireland. Same thing refers to self-adhesive foil that I put on that 30mm mdf board. All this in case of flooding.



Also, I had constant dust problems with my prev. Antec fulltower case. When my Corsair arrived, I ordered complete set of Demciflex filters from manufacturer. They do incredible job of keeping my system dust-free, especially with 9x Noctua fans running at the same time:



And finally, side view of my 3-years old system which is still fast for my needs.
It's a shame that Asus Rampage Xtreme II doesn't support SATA 6GB/s because I'm considering purchase of SSD disc(s) in the next couple of days to speed up my system. I'll only get half of the read/write speed of current models available out there, but still I'm going to get one. I could get OCZ PCEx16 SSD but I'm not too convinced to them + they cost more.
I'm also waiting for new tri-channel 24GB RAM which I got for half the price it was 2 years ago. If I can squeeze min. 1800Mhz out of them, I'll be happy as hell. My current 6GB module will be put on Ebay soon.



Cheers

Shawn

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?

Is your Evo the standard or EU version?
The fan that cames on EU version has less CMF and low air pressure than the standard version.

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6741

600 – 2,000 RPM (PWM) ± 10%
600 – 1,600 RPM (PWM) ± 10% (EU Version)

24.9 – 82.9 CFM ± 10%
24.9 – 66.3 CFM ± 10% (EU Version)

0.3 – 2.7mm H2O ± 10%
0.3 – 1.7mm H2O ± 10% (EU Version)

You also could join the Hyper 212 Club:

http://www.overclock.net/t/632591/cooler-master-hyper-212-plus-club

My computer components:

Corsair Carbide 300R with only the stock fans (front and rear)
Core I5 3550
Hyper 212+ with 2 fans (push-pull).
I replaced the stock fan with the same fan that came with the standard Evo.

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6754

Idle temp: 30C with fans at 600 rpm
Prime95: max temp around 50C with fans at 600 rpm - 900 rpm.

I dunno about the Core 3570K, but I believe that your temps could be better.
Also adding more case fans could help, but I believe not that much.

Just join too the Hyper 212 Club and post your temps there.

Hey guys I'm looking for some fans to put into a 500R that I will be ordering. 1 in the bottom, 2 in the top and 2 in the side panel. What would you suggest?

Will all of these fans be able to be connected through a splitter so that they work with the fan control on the front of the case?

I'd like to get fans that are around £5 each if possible, but if they're more then so be it.

they wont work off the front panel connector unless you remove the rpm wire. in corsairs stupidity of an idea that was brilliant for selling their own 500r case fans( the same fans in the front of the case) they turned the rpm read wire into the led power wire. thats why it has a proprietary connector.
