Then i notice my rear , side and top fans all have this rubber thing to whole the screws, but they never provide any extra ones for bottom fan, so what should i do ? I even tried using the long HDD cage screws won't work.
Or is there some special screws that can work for this case from Corsair ?? I tried their screws come with the case in a bag inside the white box, they don't work either....all still too small.
You are threading then from the bottom in to the case right ? My 500r doesn't have gromets there either but you have to thread from the outside into the fan

Yup , i plan to screw it in from bottom , that's how the vid from Corsair did it.
I did mentioned i try installing a sample fan. But i never really had a fan trying to screw it in from bottom. I tested with a screw on the whole , it went right through the hole , the size of the hole was big.....so i didn't bother getting a fan and try it.

Hmm maybe i might give it a go maybe it could hold. Did you install a bottom fan for your case ?

Ya I have one installed and the screws didn't go through. Maybe its different on a 400r though not sure

I notice one thing though , the rear exhaust fan , the screws they used for that fan is different from the ones given by Corsair in the package....
Maybe i could try those.

Your is a 500R ? I doubt it's different. a 500R its just like a 400R TBH , just slightly bigger and you have a 200mm fan on side instead etc.

I think they are basically same. I would have gotten the 500R , but my currency here drags me down.....i think it's only like 20 pound / 30 $ difference.
But it's over 100+ bucks here for me....

Just get 4 thin washers and place them between the bottom of the case and the screw.... quick and cheap solution....

Can the 5.25 bays be removed?
post #3207 of 4610
got a few questions for you 500/400R guys. I currently have a 650D. hate the 200mm in front, wish they we're 120/140's and i don't want to hack it up. I have a 400R case that i'm creating a Multimedia server with, but debating to buy another 400r, or a 500r. i like both. But I'm using a Corsair 1200W Extended Modular PSU. Will this PSU fit in either case?
Also, what's the thickest radiator that fits in the compartment that's a 280 for the 500r? Thanks for your help.

Oh, and i forgot, do the 400/500R side doors swap? I really dislike the 500R side door, and would either like to make it a window, or into the 400R door that fits 2 140's perfectly. Thanks!

the 1200 will fit.
the rad thickness depends on how your motherboard sits and if you want to mod the case my moving the mount holes over to the door side.
i slotted mine about 3/8 of an inch to fit a 45mm. if you dont want to mod yours, youre looking at a 30mm thick rad in a 500r.
check out my profiles pics for an xt45 360 in the top. i had my 240 in the top before i got the 360.

Hi guys,

I want to use a 500r in my new build in black. With the LED button on the case to turn the leds & off, will this be compatible with any fans, or do I render it useless when I switch the fans out? I'm thinking of even doing a no led build so can I unplug it completely?

OR could I use it with red ... blue etc... and use that button to control the fan lighting? If so how

Cheers
