I've read this topic all day long and decided to buy a 500R, but I would appreciate your opinion and hints.

First of all my config is

  • Asus P8B75M-LE (mATX)
  • i7 3770 (with stock cooler)
  • 16GB DDR3
  • Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti (GV-N66TOC-2GD) 2GB DDR5,
  • Corsair 650TX
  • Samsung 500GB HD


I discovered this config was very silent in my old computer case but it couldn't keep it cool, so I had to play with the left panel removed. I need to know some things to config my 500R.

  1. There will be a lot of space on the rig and since I only have 1 hard drive and no optical drives and was planning to install it on the 5.25" drives and remove the hard drive bays. In this situation can the coolers packaged with it handle?
  2. Are the coolers that come with the 500R silent/noisy/normal...?
  3. If I need to replace the coolers to quiet them down are the noctua ones a good option? Or are they silent by compromising the cooling efficiency?
  4. Is dust a serious problem with the 200mm fan, so that I need to get a filter?
  5. With plenty of space for air flow do I really need to replace the processor stock fan? (almost rhetorical question in a forum like this biggrin.gif)

Important things are the absence of optical drives and the fact that I'm not planning to overclock right now.
Thank you!

Could someone with a 400R measure how much room there is between the top 120mm fans and when the mobo starts. Also till the ram. Thanks thumb.gif Where the red is. Please smile.gif

It should be the same.as.the 500r. Just under 2 inches. Both fans and h100 rad doesmt fit with heatspreader ram.
