It looks weird, I've never seen another cooler quite like it.

(Not that I actively look at pictures of coolers)

itsdim, you need to get some low profile ram. i dont know what board youre using but in almost every scenario the ram being side by side like that means its running in single channel.

Can you fit a CM Megaflow 200mm on the side if using an nh-d14?

The CM fan is too thick.

Thanks, I guess I would have to go with dual 120's or 140's on the side...

I would fully check but my 500R was sold.
post #2457 of 4609
GF picked up a white 500R for me yesterday so I'm joining the club! thumb.gif Great case, was really easy to build on and fits my Noctua D14 with plenty of room to spare. Only real gripe with the case is that I wish Corsair had given a more useful fan controller with standard connections, and maybe make the front/top air filters more easily removable.

Otherwise loving it so far! Just need to install some more fans:D

Just opened my carbide R500 prior build and i have noticed i may have a couple of problems..i have a corsair power supply with 600mm long cables i don't think the 24pin power lead will go behind the mobo tray without an extender..is that correct and is the 8pin power lead the same i really don't want these cables trailing across the motherboard! I want to order fast if needed so help appreciated.
The other thing is silly really and i feel a berk posting the question but i noticed the motherboard mounting standoffs are pre-fitted can anyone tell me what you do about the top three motherboard standoffs as there is just 3 raised points on the tray without standoffs fitted, do you just screw the board down into them..i tried a couple of motherboard screws but they don't seem to fit the thread seems different they fit fine in the other standoffs whats gives ?

Thanks all thumb.gif

I don't know about the lengths and whether your cables are long enough but the 24 pin usually connects about half way up the motherboard on the right and the 8 pin normally connects to the motherboard at the top near the CPU socket. If you need any extender I bet it will be an 8 pin one as that cables goes all the way to the top of the motherboard behind the tray and through to the connector, I don't think the 24 pin would need to be quite as long unless I've really underestimated how big a 500R is tongue.gif

With the standoffs you don't need to do anything to the raised up ones, just screw straight into them. You only need to screw standoffs into the holes that are not raised up. (I think anyway, I've never seen a 500R in real life)

Yeah thats what i feared if the 24pin don't reach what chance has the 8pin, my psu is the..

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003QP417O/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_2?pf_rd_p=103612307&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B008O0RTFC&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=162P10MQSYE428V6C186

Just hoping to get someone with a similar psu and this case to confirm they are ok or not! Same with motherboard mounting..someone must have put a motherboard in a R500 on here biggrin.gif the standard motherboard screws don't fit the top holes thread seems different

cheers thumb.gif
