good place for it. or even on the floor, the very top, lotsa options with an ssd biggrin.gif

do you wanna go closed loop ? quiet if you replace the stock fans.
wanna go pure air ? cheap or expensive ? no matter what, you 'need' to swap out factory fans to get better noise and sometimes temps. its all about compromises frown.gif

yea looking at the photos of the cases it seems like they are all the same with exception of the actual size of the case itself.

just one of those things where if you have a couple extra bucks to spend on the pc and not sure what to get this would be one of those nitpicky things lol

what makes the 400/500r taller is the plastic bezels on top.
i have no idea why the 300r is ~1/4 inch wider but its nice you can mount 140mm fans in the front.
i still cant see why or how the 300 is so much shorter. it doesnt make sense if you look at the pictures and eyeball distances on corsair's site. thinking.gif

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

you can buy these grommets for the 300R. also, they sell a 300R window version for $10 more.

the 500R has more usable space inside than the 400R (height) and the 300R has quite a bit less than both. I guess that's why it's so much shorter. I've even heard that if you mount a cooler like the H80/Khuler 920 on the rear 120mm fan mount the top fan mount closest to the back of the case becomes unusable (haven't mounted any top fans in the 300R builds I've done so I can't confirm that).

glad i looked at your pics before i started typing. the plastic bezels are the exact reason the 400/500r are taller.
when i said "so much shorter", i meant the 300r is almost 3 inches shorter front to back. i can account for 1.75-2 inches but not the rest.
it doesnt matter really. all 3 cases are great at what they were designed for.

yea, the height difference is a bit extra. all solid cases anyway.

I made the mistake of mounting the H80 before mounting the top fans because it was easier to manage cables and install components when there were no fans up top. When I finally got to mounting those top fans I noticed I couldn't access the back two hole for the back top fan. I just ended up using zip ties. I do wish Corsair would sell the screws they use to mount the fans that come with the case. The stock fans don't seem to like the normal cheap fan screws.

Also heads up to everyone if you didn't notice Corsair is having another components and PSU accessories sale ( ends October 3rd ).
40% off for those sleeved PSU module cables is quite nice.
