I think he was saying/asking, "For my 500r, I want a cover like this, but only for the PSU; any suggestions?"

I'm having trouble with my fan controller, it doesn't "fit" in the 5.25 bay.
The side flips (I have no other word) of the fan controller are to short to reach the click system of the carbide 500r.
Does somebody have a solution for this? I temporarily used ducktape to keep it together doh.gif

My 300R H100i Fitting and cable clean-up

I bought an h100i and some sp120 quiet editions to go with it, as i got fed up with my stupid loud machine.
When i first assembled this rig i didn't pay too much attention to the cable management. So i just felt like re-doing it since im gonna be working on the rig anyway. rolleyes.gif

Before : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

As you can see it is quite messy rolleyes.gif

Installing the H100i:
I tried to research the interwebs if the cooler fits my case, i found really mixed results from different sources so i just made some measurements and went for it.
Everything was fine until I found out that my motherboard heatsink was 1-2mm too tall.
So i just grabbed the drill and made my own mounts! Took me about 15 mins in total.
Here's a pic; Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Final results:
I used a couple of hours in total in thinking the cables trough and I think I got them very nicely considering the case limitations and my non-modular PSU smile.gif
Here's some final pics Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So this solves it. I'd say with any board with "normal" sized motherboard heatsinks you are not gonna fit h100i without mods. This was my first time ever doing any kind of modification to a case, but then again, i just drilled a couple of holes rolleyes.gif

Hi Guys. I'm new to these forums but thought I'd join the club. smile.gif

Corsair 400r

Was my first solo build and the Corsair 400r was mostly fine to install in. The all black interior is slick but did make it hard trying to see sometimes. Now that it's all together now though, it's sweet.

I like the LED lights on the front two fans, nice touch, and the whole thing is very understated without being just a black box. I haven't had dust issues yet (had the system for about 2 months) but I can see the grill on the top being a problem in the future as it feels so open. Despite that though the system is fairly quiet. Can be heard but it's a low, unobtrusive tone. smile.gif

Nice, I'm thinking about doing something like that in the future, but how far in the future it will be I'm not entirely sure rolleyes.gif I need a better CPU to cool first before I even consider doing something like this.

I'm not even going to comment on your cable management wink.gif

you need to take the click system out of your 500r and instal the fancontroller with screws.

like this :

ps.. dont have a better close up picture

I have the exact same fan controller and case. You need to remove the clip on the side of the drive bay and secure the controller with screws.
If you need more help I can post pictures.

I'll just suggest that you maybe try and hide a bit more of the cables behind the motherboard tray thumb.gif

I'm no expert in this but try and take the cables the long way around behind the motherboard to get them coming through the nearest hole to where they need to connect to. So you should end up with the least possible amount of cable showing when you look from the front, and a complete mess of cables when you take the back panel off wink.gif

Yeah, but there is nowhere to tie the cables down behind the mother board, so they are moving all the time in the assembly progress, also the holes are really limited and don't have gromets on them. The case isn't ideal for a tidy looking system frown.gif
So ghetto case, ghetto cables.
