To mount fans on top of the case, you have to use the long screws that have thread only at the tip. A rad I would think that if you put it on top you will use short screws through the bottom, and if installing on the bottom, just short screw through the top.

I think it will fit without removing the cages and bays. It will be cramped, but I think it will fit.

no. its impossible to fit a 360 in the top or the front leaving the cages in. you can reposition the hdd cage at the bottom by sliding it towrds the back of the case and drilling new holes but, its the only way it will fit. but the 5.25 rack must be removed. unless you want to just cut the entire bottom of the 5.25 cage out and as far as you have to up the sides of that cage.

if you want a case to mount a 360 in, buy a different case.

rad in the top: it goes under the mesh and the fans go inside or vice versa. use the long screws with only the ends threaded as he said.
fans in the top: use the short screws that came with your 500r. put them inside or out under the mesh.

youll get a lil more air into your case if you pull those hdd cages out and mount your ssd somewhere with a SMALL piece of 2 sided tape.

yall are building some awesome computers in these cases.

out of curiosity because i didnt find it right away on corsairs website. do they sell/make rubber grommets for the 300R to buy separate if i ever wanted to get replace the side with a window one for $20?

the 500R kinda looks like it has the same holes for cable management but im not sure if they are exactly the same as the 300R. im really just surfing around because im curious, i dont have money like burning a hole in my pocket or anything lol tongue.gif
