Just stay the course man. Once you get it, I think the wait will amplify it's awesomeness.

After all, this is a brand new case and hasn't been on the market long. Who ever does it will probably have one of the first.

Corsair has hinted at developing a window panel for the 400R and 500R...

The accessories box should include all screws you need to mount all the fans in the case.

Yea, I had to stay up late last night to change a couple of things after realizing I should have mounted the radiator the other way (tubes at back). There's a ton of room in this case. I also have a 400r that I ordered a week prior to this one being released. I thought the 500R with the white panels plus the large side fan were worth it. I'll probably take a picture of them next to eachother soon for comparison, waiting on a sidepanel replacement for the 400r as mine came with a dent.

edit: Also changed the RAM to slots 2 & 4 after reading a few posts recommending it and seeing yours. Maybe that will get me to 4.8 stable..

George are those the 'Corsair' screws that the rear exhaust fan is mounted with ?

The screws required for the front fans, the hard drive cage fans, and the bottom fan are about 1.25" long, and are only threaded at the ends. They're designed to go through the fan and screw in on the backside.

Other fans can be attached with regular case fan screws that come with most fans.

How are the stock fans? I was thinking about buying a couple of 140's if it needs additional cooling.

The stock fans seem a little weak IMHO. The 200mm fan that came with my case was rattling terribly and I ended up replacing it entirely(still having problems with some rattling from the mesh though). I love the case, but I think you will want to add the 2 top fans at the very least!

Im liking the looks of this case and the cable management ect. options it has. I was wondering if anyone with one can tell me if the side mesh panel on either the 400 or 500 could be poped out easily and replaced with some plexi without major cutting. From pics it looks like the mesh is an insert into the side panel. Thanks.

The answer in my mind is both yes and no. The mesh is tabbed and inset in a way that is less convenient than just pulling it out and using 3m tape. I'm kinda thinking you would want to Dremel the existing tabs and supports to do it without the fuss of cutting the window to exact dimension and trying to fasten it in the existing framework.
