Alright guys... gonna need some help on this one.

Got a Corsair 200r for a build to go in the entertainment room. Got some more fans for it also.
I know there are two fan mounts in the front on the 200r, one comes with the stock corsair, another one empty. The empty spot for a fan is obviously supposed to be mounted onto from the other side of the drive bay (outside once the front panel is taken off). The screws have to come from the inside the case.

The problem is, there are these irremovable plastic mounting pieces behind the screw-holes, making it impossible to screw the screws into the fan. Here is a picture of the dilemma (front bottom left corner fan screw-hole):



How the heck do I get a fan mounted there? Maybe I'm being dense, but I really can't figure it out at the moment headscratch.gif

EDIT: nvm, found the special long screws... lol

Awaiting a GTX 660.

PC Power Silencer 910 was debadged. Didn't like the gawdy sticker on there, even though it matched the blue and black scheme.

Xonar DSX sound card, because the onboard Realtek 892 is just not cutting it.

Fan sits at the front, with the long screws then going through it into those holes tongue.gif
Theres not much clearance between the lower fan and the back of the front cover.

Just picked up my 500r today! Was super excited to see all the things that people have done with their 500r's. Now I'm ready to just transfer my build. Glad to join the ranks.

Guys how many fans can i install on the HDD side for my Carbide 400R ??

Also i find it hard to have fans install there, because due to the cables....the guy who build my PC for me , had the cable tie to the HDD section , so i had to rewire...another reason he did that its because to cut short the cable length by making it more to the left side instead of right , because the right side there's barely any space left for cable to be hide inside , i also barely able to close my right panel TBH , i had to press it hard to screw it in , its more likely im forcing it !

Anyone have a Carbide 400R with good cable management and most fans installed ?? Mind posting them maybe i could use it as a sample.

If possible can you guys show me how you manage your wire on the rear ( right panel section ) because my wires are just all simply tugged in there its a total mess.....

Hello there, first post in the forums.

Here is my newly built PC in a corsair 500r. Please share you thoughts smile.gif Much appreciated







post #2888 of 4610
Sweet Red and Black built =)

About the USB 3.0 wire , your able to bend it that much ?? Isn't it quite solid ?? Mine felt quite solid.....but the guy who built it for me tight it up to the HDD cage too , so maybe that's the case.

I want to pull it further back like yours cause mine its pretty far out now .

If possible mind taking a few pic inside your right side panel , i want to see some example of cable management , so i can do it properly myself thumb.gif Its a jungle in there for mine biggrin.gif

Will take some more pictures of cable management in the back when im finished for sure, because it is not finished yet, also replaced back panel fan with an AF140. As for the usb 3 cable, yes it is stiff bat rather easy to bend it like that to be honest. Just need a bit of power and all done.. the only problem i have with this case is that there is no hole to pass through the usb3 and molex fan controller cable to the back of the case without needing to go through the first grommet so those two are visible and i dont really like the look of them. Hopefully i can think of something so it looks even cleaner

hey costas, move your ssd and hdd down to the bottom drive cage and remove the top cage. you get a lot better air flow that way.
the molex and usb will fit through the small cutout under the front bezel between the optical drive bay and fan. its on the right side of the front...
i actually ran all my front panel wiring through the top rectangular cut out at the end of the optical bay near the top fan recess
