Hi guys, just got my 500r, are you suggesting to add two extra outflow 120\140mm in the upper case to balance the inflow? Consider that I'm not going liquid for now.

Greetings from Italy biggrin.gif

dont add 2 exhaust fans before adding more intake fans UNLESS you want negative pressure.
the 2 stock front intake fans dont push in a lot of air. they are weak low pressure low cfm fans. they will push a bit more with negative pressure but you'll get a lot of dust in your case. with the huge mesh area on the side panel open (no fans) though, you will have no pressure in your case.
add bottom and side fans before you add any exhaust. 1 top exhaust fan directly over the rear of your heatsink will help only a tiny bit with inside case temps. not worth it really. the rear case fan combined with an open top does a great job exhausting case heat.

please fill in your rig builder so we know what you have to work with.

Thanks for the advice!
The new rig has yet to be built, I'm in the choosing process (and waiting for some price cuts down here that should be coming in the next few weeks). I'm having a hard time choosing the heatsink though.

I love seeing a good case modded properly for some rads thumb.gif It's a little hard to see, but is the rad in the front not a part of the loop yet?
