I'm going to have to do it again at some point, because I know I could have done it better.

If you look at my sig rig you can see a full window mod (my personal preference) . There's a quick break down of the process on page 209 of this thread.

but yeah, you pull the led wire and trim the 3 pin connector down on the fan so it fits in the fan controller power plug. fans get low med high speed settings.
that led wire on the bs fan connector is the 3rd and final complaint i have about the case.
someone has pics on another forum. might go look for them and post em. gimme a few and i'll see what i find

Anyone ever done/seen a basement/PSU shroud mod in a 500r? Not for any practical purpose, more aesthetic.

you mean like a false floor, to cover the PSU and cables? I've done it on my CM storm scout, but not on the 500R. But its very simple, the way I did it, I measured the the space I wanted to cover, cut a piece of acrylic then marked where should I bent the piece, clamp it on the edge of my work table, and slowly heat it with a torch or heat gun and start bending it so it would take the shape of the PSU. Or you can just take a piece of cardboar and do it LOL

That's why i am here.. i cant seem to find any info about it in regards to the carbide 400r, H100 and the p8z77-v pro..

Honestly i doubt it will all fit inside. The boards are all pretty much the same in a general sense. The only reason a 500r will fit both the rad and fans inside.is because of the plastic and mesh top added. The 400r and 500r are the same dimension wise. I dont see ot fitting unless you mpd pr zip tie the fans to the rad

well i had seen a guy who had the rad inside top then the fans on the outside, think it was on this thread, page 113 (i think) im just wondering how i can route the fan cables back into the case and where i could find some nice covers for the fan blades (personally i think having the fans/coveres on the outside looks cool as f**k)

im just set on the H100 or another duel rad.. i see it as if there's a position for a fan, it needs a fan, or its just a waste. thats why im planning on taking the mesh on the side panel out and adding plastic.

Just installed the gpu blocks and added a 360 rad. Good temps so far.
