I could easily buy the pre-made braided kind, but where's the fun in that? We are OCN!

When you pull the trigger make sure to post back!

Haha, I actually copped out and did that... They are very nice though!

Yeah, hopefully in the coming months I'll get it together and will post back here.

Can some one take pics of the 300R with the front panel taken off ?

and also inform if the front 140mm has filters in it??

Front of 300R. I drilled the hole where the coloured fan cable goes myself.


Front panel, showing integrated dust filter. It's actually part of the front panel, only the metal grill on the front comes off.

Thank you I see there is a filter. Hows the quality of that filter, can it block smaller dust particles??

It's not that great. It blocks quite a lot of dust but the smaller particles do get in. After about a week or two my fans build up a fine coating of dust, as do my hard drives and SSD, which are mounted behind the bottom and top fans respectively. As you can see from the pictures it is sitting directly on the carpet though, and the room is quite dusty anyway.

hello guys, i've got the carbide 500R. i love it. i just want to make sure that i connected the case fans correctly as it seems they don't increase in speed when i use the controller. i connected them to the molex and the side & front intake are all connected together with male female connection. is that right? should i install something else.?

The fan controller on the 500R has a single 4-pin molex connector (that plugs into the PSU) which powers the controller, there are also 3 x 3-pin fan connectors (female), which the fans connect to, if they are, it's installed correctly. Are you certain that the speed isn't changing? If so, try plugging the fans directly into your motherboard and check that they function properly. Let me know if you need any more information, or perhaps some pictures to better illustrate what goes where.

you have trouble knowing they change speeds because they dont spin very fast making them quiet and they push barely any air making them quiet.

I think you guys are right. They function properly but they barely has any rise. I wonder what fans should I use in the future to replace those and still get Led control smile.gif
