But since this was a dual 140mm corsair rad, I didn't know if it had been designed accordingly to fit in a corsair case.

i heard/read in an interview that corsair used 20mm fan spacing on the h110. they didnt care everyone else used 15mm spacing. also as you said, they use 20mm on their cases. thats exactly why they use 20mm not 15mm on the h110

Top rads are hard to fit in 500r. I coul;dn't mount mine inside because my mosfet and vrm heatsinks blocked it and the ex 240 is too thick for the top spacing so I had to cut out the mesh and mod a bit

Does anyone know how many fans the Corsair 500r fan speed controller can handle. Looking to replace the stock white LED Corsair fans with higher CFM fans but I don't have any more motherboard fan headers available. I know there are 3 cables available off of the fan controller, but would it be possible to use fan cable splitters to add more than 3 fans? Currently using SP120s on my H100 and would like to tie those to the fan controller as well.

just put an xt45 in my 500r last night. i slotted the 120mm fan holes and slid the rad over toward the door. hopefully its still not leaking when i get home. then i can find out what my new temps are. biggrin.gif

The front fan controller supports 3 fans and ONLY the 3 fans that come with the case, it has a special connectors that other fans won't work with.

It is very easy to clip the connectors with some wire cutters for example. I've done it and it can work with any fan now.

Hey all,

I just got an email from Corsair and the refurbished 500Rs in either black or white are 65% off with coupon code 'washington'. They are $89.99 normally, after discount it's $31.50!! I'm not sure about shipping. Man I just built with a 300R, thinking about upgrading now lol.

EDIT: offer is good from 2/15-2/19

Can you fit 140mm fans in the front?

No there are only mounting holes for 120mm fans and there is probably not enough room to drill holes to fit 140mm cause the 120s take up the whole area height wise. I'm sure you could cut out some of the metal on the bottom 5.25 tray and make something work but your better off just using 120s. thumb.gif
