I recently purchased a 400r and I can confirm that they are missing the proper screws to mount fans to the side panel. I bought two 140mm NFP14 FLX fans for my side panel intake and they cannot be mounted adequately without proprietary corsair screws that were not included in my packaging.
The only other issue I had with the 400r was the bottom 120mm fan mount on the hd cage has no place for the screws to go at the base. So, you can only secure the top two screw locations. o.0
I love the looks, the overall build quality and the size but there are a couple deficiencies.

Other fans can be attached with regular case fan screws that come with most fans.
This statement is either untrue or I have a defective case because the screw mounting holes on my side panel will easily pass a "regular case fan screw" right through it. I did however find this
link that shows the proper mounting screws.. it's at the Corsair forum.Edited by Doming0 - 10/7/11 at 8:57pm
