Thanks. Hm, I feel like this would be fairly simple to mod. +rep been answering all my questions lol

haha thanks, yeah I read before on the corsair forums that someone took tin snips and just cut out the edge just where the sata ports were rather than return the case and get a different one.

Any suggestions for cable management? It's giving me a headache frown.gif The ATX cable in the middle is annoying me, too short to bring around the back.

I was also wondering whether the other side panel would buckle if it's a mess on the other side... not sure how to manage it well =\

hey everyone,

I just ordered a 300R (59$ free shipping woot)

I was just wondering about the top fans. It seems pretty unanimous that front/side are intake and the rear is exhaust, but im getting mixed answers about the top two fans. I'm just using a simple S1283 (kinda like a 212) and I was wondering if it would be more beneficial to push cold air onto the heatsink, or pull it away?

Also, there's the question on which fans to put where. High CFMs as intake to pull in more air or in the back to pull out more air?

Its usually best to use them as exhaust. The only time I would recommend using them as an intake is if you have a h100. Just try to keep more cfm going in of the case then coming out it will create positive pressure and lower the amount of dust in the case as well.

I would say if the rear is exhaust then use low rpm fans on the top exhausting. If the rear is an intake then you can use higher rpm fans up top.

Just joined the 400R club! Curious though, how many fans does the 400R come with supplied? Because I need to know how many case fans to order on the side. I bought the Corsair SP120 twin-fan package and already have the H100 on order, so that's 4-fan spots taken up on the case.

comes with 2 front and one rear. there are 2 open on the top, 2 open on the side, 1 open on the bottom, and 2 open on the hdd cages (if you can fit them with your video card).

Where were you planning on using the sp120s? You will probably find the stock h100 fans louder than you like and want to put the sp120s on the h100.
