In time. You can expect one from me when I get mine if they aren't already out by then.

you can see both power light and hdd light right below. yes all white light smile.gif
IMG_20110920_013336.jpg

two 120mm on the front and 200mm side fans are controlled by 3 switch front fan controller.
almost not audible lowest, barely audible middle, still barely audible highest.
I installed two more 120mm fans, one right beside hdds, both to pull in cool air to gpu.

I love this case. I can barely hear anything at lowest setting, still runs cooler than my older full tower thermaltake armor case. cpu is about 4-5 c lower, gpu 10-12 c lower. both on idle and load.

I give 10/10 for look, build quality, and performance! thumb.gif

Looking good! Nice clean cable management!
I can't wait for mine!

Can you do a measurement for me? I wanna try to mod 2 120mm fans on the front slant of the side panel, Does it look like that would fit? Maybe take a picture with a fan or tape measure/ruler next to it?

Very nice Phinos. I would really like to know if someone can fit a H100 with push pull config in to a 500R and still have pretty good motherboard clearance since I will be getting the case later this year.

You could but the top mesh cover would have to come off, otherwise I really don't think so.
EDIT: You can do either push or pull but not both.

I saw 600T at micro center, and I didn't like it. although they didn't have 400r 500r in stock to compare it side by side at that time. I went for 500r not because it was cheaper, I really didn't like the roundness of 600t and not being able to have any side fans was big minus for me. It's not about quality but about their personal preference.
