I had to make a few modifications to my 500R to fit the H110 radiator in the top. First of all, the tubes will not clear either front or back so I decided to cut some slots at the front so I could still use the rear fan. Next the cover would not clear the radiator so I shaved down the ridges on either side of the plastic frame. The last modification was to drill out the mounting holes to screw the fans from the bottom into the radiator. There is not enough clearance to use grommets on the mounting holes.

The H110 would fit in the 500R with the radiator inside the case with the hoses to the front, but the mounting holes are threaded. The holes would still need to be drilled out to mount the fans on top with the screws through the fans and into the radiator.

It seems like unmodified, the 500R will accept a 120 mm x 240 mm radiator or 140 mm fans.

My understanding is that you have to mount the fans on top of the case, so can you still use the mesh cover on top of the case, or are you left with the hot rod look? Corsair says its compatible, but just how I am wondering...

Oh pictures would be great too. biggrin.gif

140 mm fans will fit under the cover, but as I mentioned, the holes would still need to be drilled out since they are threaded.

If the H100 fits without needing the holes drilled out, why would the H110, if the screw holes are the same size? Not trying to argue, since you say you've installed one yourself, just curious why a modification would be necessary if the only difference between the two are radiator sizes and mounting diameter.

Edit: May have answered my own question there... The 120mm mounting holes have grommets, while the 140mm mounting holes do not.

Exactly, plus the H100 clears the stiffening ridges on the outside edge of the plastic frame for the top cover. I forgot to mention that while I had the cover apart. I took out the restrictive filter as well.

You can fit 2 140mm fans in the roof and then a 280mm rad underneath without modding. If you want the 280mm rad in the roof then you have to drill the holes out.

If the holes for the 140mm bolt patterns on the roof are threaded, how can the screws for the fan in the roof securely fasten to the threaded holes in the rad underneath? The other problem is the threaded bolt pattern on the roof do not exactly match all 8 threaded holes on the 280mm rad. The clearance around the fan holes are needed to compensate for the mismatch. If you look at the 140mm bolt holes inside the case, you will see that the metal was punched from the top and threaded to allow more material for the threads. even after I drilled out the holes, I still had to take a larger drill bit to remove the excess metal so the fans would sit flush against the top panel.

Vntatewa's experiences line up with someone else's in the Corsair forums, so I guess its technically compatible, but you need to mod the case to get it to fit.

Post #912 shows the mounting holes if anyone is interested.
