post #3461 of 4610
I'm looking at this case an I might get it for my other build. What are the main differences between the 400R and the 500R? Is the 500R worth the extra money?
post #3462 of 4610
the differences are mainly as follows:
side panel fan(s) mount
500r with removable hdd bays
top plastic panel on 500r making fans inside the case with slim rads possible

There is also the fan controller for the two front and side fans.

Both cases are currently the same price at Newegg with a promo code.

Does the 400R also have the bowed out side panels like the 500R?

Hi Everyone, Just received my new 300R today, Moved from a Silverstone TJ08 so its much more roomier now, So far so good, Cable rooting was time consuming but turned out well, worth the hassle. Anyway here are the first pics of day 1. More to come.

Hey guys, qhich question. Is the 500r compatible with the h110 and/or kraken x60, and if so can the rad still fit on top or does it have to be inside in a pull config?

Thanks in advance!

They are compatible but the rad has to be put inside with the fans in the roof compartment. See here the compatibility section here:

Thanks! has anyone tried the x60? I know it uses 15mm spacings so that could be an issue.

Look at posts starting #3451, no matter what the Corsair compatibility chart says, the H110 or the Kraken (same OEM manufacturer Asetek) cannot be installed without drilling out the mounting holes. I bought my 500R and H110 based on the compatibility chart and found out that the H110 could not be mounted (unmodified) inside the case as explained in my posts. The * in the compatibility chart says the fans need to be mounted on top, which is true since they are thinner than the radiator. The H110 at least matches the 20 mm fan spacing on the 500R, while the Kraken X60 has 15 mm fan spacing. Since the fan screws thread into the radiator, you cannot mount the H110 without drilling out the mounting holes or slotting the mounting holes for the Kraken X60.
