Well, the NZXT Switch 810 and Phantom 820 are huge. LOL

Im re-painting my 400r so far its turned out pretty good im painting the majority of the case matt white, and then painting all the fan grills a nice blue (buying blue paint tommorow) heres the progress so far.


Front


ran out of paint doing the front

might get some blue led fans for the side panel and front fans

Heres a picture of a 500R i edited (im using 400r but picture of 500r was already white the cases are almost the same anyway)
also i missed editing the front IO but that will also be painted white

Hello everybody!

My name is Gonçalo and this is my first post here.
I just made a €1000 upgrade this week and I'm very happy with it smile.gif
Here are my specs:

Case: Corsair 500R Black
Mobo: Asrock Z77 extreme4
Processor: Intel i5 3570k
CPU Cooler: H100
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 2x4GB 2133MHz CAS11 1.5v
Graphic Card: Asus GTX660Ti OC
SSD: Kingston HiperX 3K 240GB
PSU: HX1000

(I will take pictures this weekend)

The reason that brings me here, despite the desire to share my rig with you all is that one of my front fans, is making a rotation noise, seems like it's the bearing or something.


Now my first question is: Where can I get a corsair fan like this one, to match the other in the front?
Second question: Can I change both the front fans with similar ones, with led lights, and will the power and speed buttons in the front case still work with them?

Thank you.

Peace
gonsa

hello and good luck with your new upgrade. you can buy the stock fans from here. you can use any 120mm fans in the front of the case, but you will not be able to use any other fans with the built in fan controller without some minor modification to the connector. hope that helps.

Thank you PureBlackFire for your quick answer.

I was now wondering. Could there be anyone here who has already changed their stock fans and wanted to sell one of them? smile.gif

it's probably cheaper to buy from the manufacturer. or better yet, since the stock fans suck imo, buy two better fans for the case. funny enough I changed mine and only have one inside the case (mounted on the bottom of the case in front of my power supply) while the other is inside the box to my case.

the lighting button is exclusive only to that fan. changing the fan out will NOT allow you to control the light.

before buying this fan i would strongly advise you to contact Corsair and they should be able to send you a new fan, free of charge, as part of the warranty
