i dont know if the koolance fan riser/mount/shroud will work with the 500r and still look good. ie, will cover the entire top side to side. im tempted to buy the 360 version to see if it will but i hate to throw away $40(with shipping).

of course they make a 2 fan also but ppcs only carries the 2x 140
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_457_335_982&products_id=27639
the 2x 140 may come close to cover the mesh area but i cant measure it right now. the 3x 140 may come close to covering the whole but i doubt it. cant measure it either right now.

its either this or build your own from sheet metal or acrylic. i dont know of any other way to mount both a rad and fans external on a 500r which would be the only carbide case of having any hope. you would still be limited on rad thickness if only using the koolance shroud. btw, it would need to be mounted straight to the plastic panel on top which is why i dont think it would be wide enough. some modding would definitely make it though.
ok, im done babbling.

*EDIT* also i forgot, the plastic panel angles down on the sides. might make it difficult mounting that shroud...

Basically imagine a small shoe box attached to the top of the case where the mesh cover would normally be.

in other words, you want a rad box. theres a member here who makes nice looking boxes. i dont know who it is but i believe its dwood. go post in the water cooling forum and ask for a direction to go.

Thanks I'll do that. Gonna try to mod the old one to fit around the rad so I can keep my push/pull setup since it's keeping my temps nice & low under prime95. Just in case I butcher it I'll have a backup thumb.gif

Hey Guys
I have a 500r and i'm trying to tremove the bottom Harddrive cage.
Do I need to remove the top one first?
Because I removed all the screws and it's not coming out.

I have a question, anyone here know if I have a Phanteks PH-TC14PE will I be able to fit 2x140 mm fans on the side panel or will the cooler be to tall to fit the fans?

The fans in question are Cougar Vortex HDB CF-V14H and they have a depth of 25 mm
