Has anyone tried to stuff an XSPC RX240 or similar radiator inside the case at the top mount position?

The cfm's are amazing on my 140mm Prolimatech fans from frozen cpu and they are quite.

Let me know if the 140mm fans fit in the front because I have 6 Prolimatech Blue Vortex fans.thumb.gif

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.

I saw that post as well, made me weary of buying the case. If Corsair overlooks something so simple, who knows what else they have overlooked. But I caved and ordered one anyone from Amazon, getting it soon.

Can someone tell me if the side panel on the 500R accepts 140mm fans (my hunch is it does, but Corsairs website doesnt say where you can mount the 140mm fans). If it can accept them, how wide can they be?
post #257 of 4610
500R side panel takes 1x200mm, or 2x 120 or 140mm fans

Possible issue related to the 500r.

I just installed a new motherboard into my 500r. Ive noticed buzzing/vibrating sounds after installing the motherboard. The sound comes directly from the motherboard but I noticed that when I press down on the top panel of the case, the sound stops. Could it possibly be a problem w/ my case or motherboard? My motherboard is screwed in very tightly. If Its a problem w/ the case, should I contact Corsair or Newegg?

I believe (based off review) the top panel may be attached with screws instead of rivets. Check to see if a screw may have come loose during shipping.

Would the case take a rear 140mm or just 120mm?
