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

Hello there and thanks on your comments, the reason i have mounted the drives on the top hard drive bay is that i am running only a single sata cable from the PSU powering the ssd, HDD and h100i (is that good by the way? And also, i like the straight look the case has when both trays are attached on the front whereas when you remove one of them it kind of makes it a bit uglier for my tastes. It may be personal preference although thanks for your hint on the fron panel cables, i saw that cutout a bit after i completed my cable routing and was really frustrated as i had to remove the motherboard and practically everything i had done and build the system from the start, so i basically gave up tongue.gif i will reroute all the cables when i have time though and thanks for your help, much appreciated smile.gif

Guys for the Carbide 400R , the HDD section , what i saw online everyone said it can install up to 2 X 120mm fans, but i only found 6 screw holes....2 top , 4 top mid and lower mid , then there's none on bottom if not mistaken, is that correct ??

So means the bottom 120mm fan for the HDD section will only have 2 screws to support it ??

Updated cable management. I love this case, so much space for building.

My 200R doesn't arrive until thursday but all my other components will be here tomorrow.. I don't have a full size case to use til the 200R gets here.. is it crazy to do a no-case build on my desk? Is it ok to set a motherboard on the anti-static bag it came in?

there are indeed (or at least there should be) 8 holes. mine had 8 screw holes, but looking at pics online, it seems to vary between actual holes that don't protrude on corsair's site (Click to show)
to having 7 holes and 1 groove like what you find on the rear of a case where the psu mounts here (Click to show)

Please don't set your motherboard on the anti static bag, the outside of it is conductive. There's nothing wrong with a caseless build, just put your motherboard on the box it came in.

I used the XSPC ex series radiators. They are about as wide as you can go on the top without having issues. The specs on both of them are 121 x 35.5 x 410mm (WxDxH) and 121 x 35.5 x 275mm (WxDxH).

hope that helps!

What filters are those? I could do with getting some to sort out my dust problem.
