Hi everyone,wave2.gif been following this forum for awhile now...this is my first ever post.

it's good and everything, but the front 2x120mm fans and the 200mm on the side aren't turning on at all!
have you guys experienced this? if so please help me, ive email corsair support about it, but no response so far, ill keep waiting.

One will conflict with the other and prevent the 2nd one from mounting.

May look silly but couldn't you just install 1 140mm on the inside of the case and the 2nd on top of the case?

According to the Corsair site and Corsair George, 2x 140mm fans will fit on the top of this case, but it seems some 140mm fans with 120mm mounts will not fit both on top. So Gentle Typhoons should mount together with no known issues.

I would double check and even triple check all your connections before assuming it's a broken fan controller. I've seen people forget to hook the controller up to power before tongue.gif

It wasn't a big deal for me since I had a couple of NF-P12s laying around for the top fans. I used my other two TY-140 for the cooler and kept the 200mm on the side panel. It all worked out in the end quite well. smile.gif

It will fit fine but very close. Your sata ports will be fine. I've seen people use boards like the Asus Maximus IV Extreme inside with no problems. And I'm almost certain that Corsair George answered this question earlier in this thread. So to sum it up yes E-ATX will fit inside this case.

EDIT: Here's an attached photo of an E-ATX board inside the 500R.

This is true, but the right-angle SATA connectors on the bottom will be blocked by the cable routing well. We don't recommend using E-ATX boards if you're going to install more than 4 hard drives. This is why we claim it's ATX and mATX compatible, and not E-ATX.

We have installed 2 x 140mm fans on top of the 500R, but they were standard 140mm fans, and we used standard fan screws. I'll take a look at this in the lab to see if there's anything specific that makes it not work, but from what I can remember, it worked when I tried it.

From what I can remember, is that most of the 140mm fans that can use 120mm mounting holes, tend to be larger than standard 140mm in dimension. Like, a standard 140mm fan, is 140mmx140mm. However, a 140mm fan that uses 120mm mounting, has a something like a 145mm fan, so overall dimension is larger. Which is why, you'll see fans like the TY-140 have the flat spots to try to encompass side by side mounting. if this made any sense. really tired atm.

That's right, I forgot you had mentioned that before about the right angle sata connections. My mistake tongue.gif

I'll try and look at this tomorrow after work and see if I can fit a couple of generic 140mm fans. I'm surprised you were able to use the standard fan screws. I could have sworn the holes were too small for them...
