I believe your referring to 10speedr's case? to mount a 360 rad you need to drill out a few rivets for the 5.25" bays (they can latter be re-installed with bolts). Also I think he just had the rear fan out while installing the loop, i'm sure he has a fan installed when running the computer. As far as exhaust, you want more intakes then exhaust because it keeps down on dust more to have positive pressure. You will probably have better temps with at least 1 fan as exhaust i'm sure.

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.


which retailers have that discount?

I had a question for you fellow 400r owners. I just started putting my build together last night. I'm still waiting on replacement fans. Adding 5 Bitfenix Spectre fans. 2 in front, 2 on top, and 1 rear exhaust. I didn't want the LED fans in the front (don't need to lights to attract my baby). Just wondering if you had to use the cable that the original fan were hooked up to that went to the front panel? Seems like they were connected to the front panel then a molex plug came from it. I would like to not use this plug and just hook my fans to a controller i have.
post #2310 of 4610
the plug/wiring on the front isnt needed. just hook up your fans to the controller.
