Just purchased this case last Monday and am loving it very much so far, despite missing key components >.<<br />
I've moved all the main things in but the PSU, sleeved cables, heatsink and light kits should be here mid-week and installed by Saturday; will keep you all updated!



Cable management is 'gon be sweet biggrin.gif

Also, as an Aussie, where a bouts/who in australia stocks the rubber grommets from the 600T? I've had no luck finding them on ebay or anything and I'm not willing to fork out 60$ in shipping for $15 grommets from the corsair store.

Cheers

Just want to do a friendly warning / reminder.....if any of you have 400R like mine....could be only me having this problems.
As you know all it's screw holes it have a rubber thing as a absorber to absorb the fan vibration etc to prevent noise.

Well problem is Corsair used them as a washer too ! Since the rubber is soft , also the hole itself without rubber is big ass hell....
Im using the screws provided with the fans , so total 6 months has passed since the day i brought home my rig.

Now the screws and rubbers on top for my fans , are all sunken down a little. If your not careful , anytime later the screws will definitely go through the rubbers....so i noticed this and i hurry added some washers on them.

Side fans should be fine. But also i would like to add a complain to this idea.
As for my rear , i have installed 2X fan for my AIO Water Cooler. As you know for a twin fan one rad , the screws they use its just the right length , so i have to go through the fan first then only reaches the rad and it's just the correct length no extra at all , so the rubber is blocking , since it's so thick ! The screws won't reach the rad ! If i took out the rubber off the screws will go right through ! So ending up i have to find another four more washers , took out the rubbers and use the washer to lock my screws through the fan and to the rad....

But it's a stupid design if you asked me , if only they made the screws longer ! No difference using Corsair's long screws and the screws came with my cooler , all are same.
( But i wonder are all dual fan one rad water coolers like this too , but i don't see any other ways... )

Im using a Enermax ELC-120-TA btw as a water cooler. Hope Corsair will stop using this rubber thing as a washer in future....!

Did some google-ing and apparently these guys are good. Their shipping is also very reasonable at only 14$. http://www.performance-pcs.com/

Change it out with a green 1...
Desolder the white and solder in a new green. You can find green leds with the correct voltage/amps/whatever in old psu like dells and hps.

You have a 500R right? I got a better idea than soldering. Get a green Sharpie pen, take off the front panel, color the square LED green, replace the panel. Green LED!! Feel like changing colors? Alcohol takes care of it.

I did mine with a blue Sharpie.
