Its definitely a base for modding more than a completed work of art.

Omg , i must agree on this , well the bottom does come with a filter , my PSU does look quite clean for now ( i only owned it for over 4 months now ) , but the side 2 X 140 / 120mm is sucking in dust as if its a vacuum cleaner !

Im not sure about the front , i haven't check them yet. Hope they are fine !

Also since im from Asia , there aren't many PC parts / PC moded parts sold here , so looking for dust filters its pretty difficult , unless i order it from US , but with shipping fee etc its pretty costly just for an air filter....

If i can't find any suitable air filter soon , i had to switch it to exhaust then , that leaving only my front 2 original 120mm intake

My Corsair 200R is here.



My only concern is the non existent clearance between the PSU intake holes and my carpet floor. Is it even safe for the PSU? Also the case is going to be a mess when it comes down to dust buildup...

We currently have no plans to release a window for the 400R/500R. There's a demand for it, but it's fairly small (you guys make up most of it) and it would require a significant tooling expense to mod a piece of plastic to fit the existing 500R panel, and even more to re-do the entire panel for a window.

I realize this isn't ideal guys, sorry. We looked into a window a couple times for different reasons, in a few different ways. If there were a relatively easy, and relatively inexpensive way to do it, we would.

Sorry I hadn't answered it before now - I really thought I'd answered it a bunch of times over the last year but I guess it was all PMs.

Thanks for getting that out there.

I ran into this with my 300r on a particular 140mm Noctua fan. I think it has something to do with how the mesh is "weaved" on these cases.

I will say the BitFenix fan is the worst built "premium" fan I have purchased. While I was testing for the noise (slowing moving the fan closer to the side panel till the noise started), I slightly touched the mesh while the fan was spinning. Two of the blades snapped off clean. Yes 100% my fault, but in my 20 years of computer building/tinkering I have never snapped off blades snap off like this.

I considered buying that fan myself, but it felt really cheap and I guess I know that it wasn't my imagination now smile.gif

I had the same problem with my 500R, I ended up just placing it on a plank of wood.
Try and raise the case from the carpet, or place the case on something else, you definitely don't want to leave the intake blocked.
An over-heated PSU is a bad PSU.

Plank of wood ruings the looks and functionality of this case for me. 500R at least has 1/2" stands, 200R is almost completely flat. So much for the bottom psu fan intake, I will have to flip the PSU around. I guess something like this should be mentiontioned in some of the reviews about this cae.

Considering buying either a 400r or a 500r for my next build.

I have a Noctua NH-D14 and i'd like to know if my cooler would fit in the 400r along with two 120mm fans at the top and side. Am I better in getting a 500r because of the radiator area at the top where I could mount fans?

the cooler will fit fine in either case.

But with the aforementioned fans in with it as well? As in internally (I don't want to put external fans on top of the case.) The side panel on the 400r is curved so I could put two 25mm thick fans on the side with little trouble. The NH-D14 is a big cooler and takes up of room in a case. I'm just not sure how much room i'm going to have between the top fan mounts and the cooler.

yea. Corsair knows what they're doing for the most part. even the 200R fits the big tower coolers with a fan on the top and side panel.

The 500r is on sale at newegg for 119$ + 10% code bringing it to 107$ on top of giving you a 20$ rebate and free shipping. (Only good for the rest of today).

I just picked one up couldn't resist at that price
