So what you are saying is, the heat the air gets from going trough the radiator as intake is insignificant? Or the extra heat in the case going trough the radiator as exhaust is insignificant?

Either way, I guess one more intake @ front and 2 intakes @ top would be the best to add?

the 'heated' case air going through the rad is insignificant. i cant comment on fans for the 300r.
just for comparisons sake with my 500r(also differs by having an h100):
h100(4x120mm) top exhaust, case rear exhaust, top side exhaust
bottom side intake, case bottom intake, 3 120mm in front as intake with top hdd cage removed
120 fans are indicated and the remaining are 140mm. i have a 'box' over the top side panel fan to push the warm air up so the bottom fan doesnt suck any warm air in.
i doubt i can get any coolers temps than i have now. both ibt and p95 max out at 63*. my problem is keeping my top 670 cool. the asus gets up to 69* while gaming and that aint 'kewl'.

*EDIT* make sure you buy high pressure high cfm fans for intake. exhaust pressure wont matter as much as cfm.

Why does corsair put the weird looking stand off in the middle is that just a easier way to keep the board in line. Do you have to put anything on top of that.


Also i have a padded i/o so is it safe to push the motherboard against it to line it up?

This is the Gigabyte UP5

I'm glad that I found this club!
I only have one negative thing to said about my 400R; the left side panel screw hole on the chassis is "distorted/loset" so the thumb screw does not tightens anymore.

This is the Gigabyte UP5

I used pliers to get it out. Don't want to risk it shorting anything out, it simply unscrews.

Why would you use a soldering iron to cut o_O Use a dremel or something, even a hacksaw.

Absolutely, the Samsung RAM really helps with tight fits thumb.gif

Contact Corsair about it, they're typically very good about stuff like this. Alternatively, find a thumbscrew from your motherboard or PSU, it's usually the exact same thumbscrews

also, the 500R can fit a RIVE even though it would be a bit risky? 600T does it, 400R can fit a mobo which is 0.5cm less wide, so im guessing it can. just want to confirm it. also 500R only fits a H100i with one side of the rad's fans installed right?

Hey mate,

firstly pretty thin rads, XSPC kit 240 and a second XSPC 120, both slimmest available. Top rad is mounted up top in that section under the mesh. I gutted the plastic so it still fit the mesh over the top.

I also had to cut the case up a little to fit the fittings from the 240 rad.

As you just said with the H100 is exactly how i had mine layed out. I actually upgraded do a 800D last night.


Much <3 for Stanceworks, i rock the same sticker on my car too smile.gif

There is no real Corsair in Argentina AFAIK, on top that, type Corsair cases are not even entering my country anymore. So even If i send it to my retailer, I either would have to wait for months and/or get a different case. I'm pretty much screw in that aspect.

Can you elaborate on the on the thumbscrew bit, please? Thanks.

Most PSUs come with 4 thumbscrews to screw into the back of the case. Use one of those tongue.gif

Otherwise you can buy aftermarket thumbscrews for pretty cheap

I personally have some of these in blue ( Link ) and they work fine

Or one for $60 http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17938/scr-439/6-32_x_50mm_Hardened_Carbon_Steel_Thumbscrew_-_Black_6-32X5.html
