Well, when I installed my SSD a few nights ago, I took off the top cover and tried to use those long corsair screws for the small fan holes and there is no way they can be used. (Still too thick and the standard generic fan screws are impossible to use as well...)

I see three ways you can use the 140mm holes:
1. You'll need some very thin screws.
2. Zip-Ties
3. Drilling

As far as I can see, two 120mm fans simultaneously are possible and only ONE 140mm with 120mm mounts can be used for the top fan positions (if you lack any tools, thin screws or zip-ties)

Also, has anyone done any case modding for the 400R/500R? If not, would anyone like to give me some tips on what to do? I have the 400R, and would like to try something on the side panel for a window. Everything from scratch of course.

I know for the 500R I plan on taking the mesh out and replacing it with a window and maybe using the slant forward of it to put two 120mm fans. As for the 400R you could probably do the opposite, use the forward slant on the side for a window and the standard mesh area for two 120mm fans.

That one I'm not entirely sure of, I know that it will fit a Hyper 212+ and that's 159mm. So how big is the one you speak of in height?

Edit: I just looked it up and see it's 160mm so I'm sure it will fit fine.

I talked it over with my father and we're gonna do a little family project, haha. I took a stock picture of the internet and highlighted what we will cut out (basically the entire side beside of the actual indention), and put it a window there. It's going to be a huge window, and it will bend around to the ride side of the panel as well.

Going to make a case mod log thread soon smile.gif Expect it.

Is it just me or does the 500R look a lot like my Lancool K 62. Well aside from the white color and side panels.

Thanks for your answer but Thermalright Archon is 170mm tall.

I stand corrected. But I would think that SHOULD still fit. But if anyone in here feels like measuring to help out please do. tongue.gif
