I'm wondering.. is the big side fan blowing air in or out of the case?

Its intake. I'll do some pictures tomorrow. The controller has a white LED which generally I hate but it looks slick with the Power button which is white also. Oh and this fan controller rocks too, its got nice long black 3 pin cables. I would also suggest getting a Molex > Sata adapter if you don't want to clutter up your case with a useless molex power cable.

Just put my 500r together, great case to work with. My only complaint is the proprietary screws Corsair decided to use. I believe Corsair intends to fix this, but the case DOES NOT ship with screws that will allow you to mount additional fans. True you can use normal fan screws but they can be pulled through, which doesn't feel safe to me.

I replaced all the stock fans with Scythe fans, the ones that ship with the case look and feel cheap although they are quiet. I put a NZXT Mesh Fan Controller in the front bay and it looks great, the mesh isnt completely the same but who cares.

Love the side panel bulge, it allows you to be extremely lazy with organizing your cables behind the motherboard.

Highly recommend this case

Call Corsair Customer service, and tell them your 500R didnt come with the extra screws needed to install more fans. They will send you a pack of the correct screws.

Very nice. As always, I will recommend you switch the radiator fans to intake, as you will get better temperatures. Also make sure the pump is plugged into a molex connector with an adapter if possible, otherwise make sure the header where the pump is plugged into is set to full speed.
