Apparently the company i ordered the case from never had it in stock...

I got an Email directly from Corsair saying that it's not officially available to the UK market until November... Looks like i may have to get a different case at this rate.

Can you forward that email to me? redbeard@corsair.com

Because it's not entirely correct. I know for a fact we have resellers in the UK who should have it sooner than that.

It's sorted now, the same person contacted me about an hour later stating that the cases just arrived in the UK today and will be dispatched to retailers by the end of this week or early next week.

Loving the looks of the white 500r. Definitely considering it for my next case upgrade (Christmas of 2012 tongue.gif). Can't help but wonder if there'll be a new version out by then. biggrin.gif

The front fans are 120mm, right? And the tops, are they 120mm or 140mm or both?

Front fans are 120mm, 2 top fans are 120mm or 140mm, side fan is 200mm or 2x 120 mm or 2x 140mm and rear fan is 120mm or 140mm. Also there is a spot on the bottom of the case for a 120mm or 140mm fan if your PSU allows it to fit (size)

Compared to an Antec P180. What is the noise level from the case? I want to upgrade my case for better cable management but don't want to sacrifice the noise dampening. I am torn between the 500r and the 650d. Want to see more reviews of the 500r to because I am skeptic about how well the 500r filters dust and how easy it is to clean the front fan filter. I have a dusty house frown.gif need to have my ducts cleaned.

IMO the 500r isn't that hard to clean filters at all. Yes you can't just remove the filter from the front panel without EVENTUALLY breaking the tabs from bending the mesh, but if you just simple remove the front panel and clean it that way it's solved. The front panel pops off in a second and easily. Sadly though the side panel doesn't come with a filter for the 200mm fan but you can very easily get an aftermarket one soon I'm sure.

Edit: Forgot to mention the bottom removable dust filter, It's a simple slide out and clean filter for your Psu and a bottom fan if you can fit it.

As for noise level from what I've heard the 500r and 650d are close. I heard about a bit of a humming sound coming from the front 650d 200mm fan but as in most cases you are just gonna replace those fans with better ones aren't you?
