nope it isn't. actually i searched google and the forums and other famous hardware forums and the FAQ of corsair and the 500R manual (Which is one page or so ). but you wouldn't know that right ?! biggrin.gif

Sure no problem , glad that i could help thumb.gif Sorry if i couldn't be any more clear with my answer to you.

About the front 2 fans , for me , as like you said i have a 400R so its similar , its both connected to a molex , so i just had them to direct power. You could connect them to a fan controller etc if you want to. They will work too. But not sure could you still turn on / off the LED if you do that....since i remember the LED for those 2 fans are in the same wire as the one with the molex.....

Hi guys,

A couple more questions for the users who are a part of the carbide 500r owners.

I have recently decided to purchase this case along with a demciflex filters kit. I am happy to use the integrated fan controller with the white led lights and corsair fans.

I HATE the idea of having to mod or cut or snip wires away from this case in order to get what I need. My question to you guys, is if after a while I decide I'd like to change out the fans inside my case, can I simply unplug them from the corsair fan controller, install my own dedicated fan controller in the bay and install with it all my own personal choice of fans, without destroying any future chance to use the corsair fan controller should I move my dedicated one into another rig?

I just want to be able to one day plug the fans back in and use the stock fan controller again, I understand that the fan controller and led controller uses a corsair only fan plug.

If anyone could shed some light on my situation I'd be eternally grateful. I hope I made sense.

You can install any fan controller with any fans you'd like, it will not affect the ones supplied with the case, they would exist as two separate systems.

16.9 x 8.3 x 19.6 inches, or 430mm x 210mm x 497mm (H x W x L)
and the Evo is 159MM

The reason I'm not positive is because of the allotment the case has for cable routing so I just want to confirm. Thanks!!

It will fit just fine, with about 10mm of clearance to the side panel. I used to have that cooler in my 200R, there were no issues whatsoever.

Hi~~This is my 500R:) The panels are all acrylic.

Two TY-147 pull the air from front (with 3M air filter) and arctic F14 & F9 on rear push the air out of the 500R.

(Arctic F9 is set on the PCI rear slot as shown in picture above)

Face2Face: That looks really, really good. Even got the PSU to match the theme, which isn't easy in some instances.

Had a disaster this afternoon chaps.

Had the case apart as I was adjusting fans and deciding which ones to use, and where to put them. Whilst attaching the front of the case, I've caught it in the lower 120mm fan and busted one of the fan blades. Anyone know where I can get more of the standard looking matt back Corsair 120mm DC brushless fans from?

You may need to order them direct through Corsair? I would also try eBay..
