http://www.awd-it.co.uk/images/detailed/4/corsair-400r-rear2.jpg
Because there are alot of dust gathered up inside my case at the spot when i open my case today.....
Im still puzzle why the plates they made had holes in it.....
If anyone do plug it up , mind sharing? Maybe a mod you did or something
I only used 3 slots , 2X for GPU , 1X for Sound Card

This is the majority of the solution.

BUT. At low RPM's with a rig below load and accounting for ambient air flow in the room (fans or air pressure differentials) these can be a bit of a grappling point for dust.

Fortunately the mod is simple, attractive, and effective: Black matte electrical tape. Apply a strip neatly to the inside AND outside of each PCI cover. Will look a smooth black and effectively end this problem.

Alternatively you could could use black card stock cut into segments and placed on the interior to take advantage of the positive pressure and keep the exterior effect of the square grid intact.

Either solves the problem is cheap and looks good.

in regards to the push-pull, if worst comes to worse you can just have one of the fans on the outside.
FAN ||case|| RADIATOR | FAN
It's not a real eatx, the Crosshair IV Extreme rolleyes.gif
One fan on the outside is not a bad idea, thanks. I did find a picture of the fan/rad setup I want, seems like a tight fit;

So I was running FarCry3 on my GTX 460s, and this game heats them up to 80C each. I tried reversing the 200mm side fan to exhaust the heat from them, and that brought them down to 75C. Then I tried the two stock 120mm Corsair fans I got with my H100... having them intake fresh air onto the cards I don't see them rise over 56C. thumbsupsmiley.png The only bad part is these fans at 12V are LOUD!. ... I think I may need to get some AF140s and a controller...

Just pulled the plug on 500R after days of confusion.

 

There was a sale to choose this over Haf X.

 

I hope I wont regret it.

 

I own the Corsair 800D but not happy for its air cooling abilities.

 

Any tips you guys can give me for 500r?

Tks for the reply.
Hey that's a good idea, because i been thinking the same thing, I do have some Carbon Fiber stickers , my friend have loads of them. I could just use it to stick on them. It will look nice indeed biggrin.gif

Yeah i do , i made a air filter on the side 2 X Intake fan, well for the front the panel comes with the casing already has it ,same goes with the one on the bottom for PSU / Bottom fan.

I didn't make one for my top 2X Exhaust though , it wasn't dusty at all so i didn't bother.

Same goes with my rear Exhaust that comes with the case.

My setup is 2X Side and Front Intake , 2X Top Exhaust and 1X Rear Exhaust.

No Bottom fan / HDD fan.

Everything else is pretty clean only as I said i don't understand why dust are stuck on the PCI / PCI-E slots , its more on the inner bottom , where it sits on top of my PSU top corner....weird !

In the process of adding my FrozenCPU window to the 500R. Figured I'd show the process a bit, since I'm not sure if anyone else has.

Step one is take the rubber portion and set it on the inside of the case door lining it up where you want it. Do this so the inside edge of the rubber is lined up with 3 of the lines of the exterior lines of the indention. then trace the inside lines with a pencil and don't forget to mark the inside of the holes for the bolts too. After this step you'll have this:

Tracing the inside of the rubber.

Next secure the door so it doesn't buck while you are cutting (30,000 RPM's can cause that.)

THE CLAMPS!

The proper tool for this job is some kind of rotary tool. Dremel is the most common, but I hear good things about the Black & Decker RTX. Either way a flex shaft is advisable, but I didn't have one.

The slowest but smoothest way to make the cut.

Then settle in, because this takes awhile. You can either score the surface by making several passes and cut that way, or once you break through the surface just push slowly through like a mini table saw. Both method's work, it's largely a matter of taste. If you prefer pushing as opposed to scoring, get the Black & Decker, the higher torque makes this less arduous.

30 minutes of work.

The cutting could take you UP TO a couple hours. I've had to spread it over days, because the Dremel I'm using has a dying rechargeable battery so I can only do it a bit at a time.

I recommend 3 additional things. Some cheap ear plugs from a drug store (I've been using my firing range ear protection, but it all works.) Some sort of wood/metal shop eye protection. And a thin paper face mask so you don't breath steel dust.

I'll update with more photos as I finish this part of the project.

Put together a 200R a couple days ago. Favorite feature is the 2.5" drive bays for SSDs, etc.


My previous 300R and 500R (not sure if I posted them before):

I might have just broke the headphone jack on my 300R frown.gif Earlier I tripped over my headphone cable and now I have to push the male jack down and hold it for the sound to come out of both channels, otherwise it's just the left channel.
