i know almost everything involved. ive read enough threads on a lot of different forums. i'll also be slotting the fan fount holes on the front of the case. for the pump i have and the thickness of the xt45 plus fans, i knew i would lose the bottom of the case at the hdd cages plus the bottom of the odd cage plus the top of the odd cage for the new 360. that leaves me the 2 center 5.25 bays where the vantec will go. this going to be 1 cramped case and i hope i can get some good airflow. i dont want to water both my 670s only the asus. i certainly wont have room for another rad. im already losing an internal dvd drive and having to go usb external on it. man i wish i had bought a full size case.

I hear you on that. I have a dual bay res with a ddc 3.25 pump and I had to remove my disk drive so I could have a gap between my fan controller and res as it was a pain removing the controller everytime I wanted to swap something in my loop and refill. Since I have a bay res I can't cut out the metal because it partly rests on the metal and there are no screw holes on the right side so I oculd only screw it in on the left. I would much rather have a 240 in the front and my 120 in the bottom but I had to go top and rear instead because of this. I love this case I really do but the amount of modding I've had to do just for my watercooling alone is ridiculous lol. I just ordered an asus slim external usb drive to replace my internal one aswell.

when people ask about the 500r and how friendly it is i have 1 thing to say. its a good starter case. it requires way too much modding if you dont plan ahead on where you want to go or what youll add. if you know you only want the basics and air, its a great case. its just overpriced once you have to start modding it.
im thinking about building my own open air bench test type this summer. no case confinement anymore.

Ya that's pretty much it. I've had to cut out the front mesh and cut down the plastic on the front panel just so my res sits even with it. The way the 5.25 bays are designed is as if corsair assumed the only thing going in there was a disk drive. I've had to break off the plastic clips and mod the top panel so my rad could fit in the top space as it's much thicker than the h100 rad that it is designed for and of course my mpower's mosfet heatsinks block the ability to have the rad inside the case lol.


this would be my most recent adventure tongue.gif

I bought this cased when I was using a m-atx board with a sandy bridge 2400 and after I upgraded and wanted to push my 3770k I went custom water which this case isn't so accommodating to.
