El Fuego, not sure if anyone answered your last question...I just put an H220 in a 500R myself. There are a couple things to note about installing this system in a 500R:
1. you will need to install the fans on top of the case (they fit perfectly under the mesh screen) and the radiator/reservoir inside the case. You cannot fit the entire fan/radiator assembly inside the case due to the placement of the mobo. I *think* you could put the rad+fans all on top (the hoses are really very long), but you would not be able to use the grill, and I'm not sure what the benefit would be.
2. you will have to mount the radiator "upside down" (fill port facing down) because the reservoir extends beyond the top of the radiator and the radiator will not lay flush at the top of the case.
This set up has not caused me any trouble. I'm getting excellent temps (low 30's idle / high 50's under heavy load tests) and my PC is SO much quieter than it was on air. I'm really impressed with the setup so far. Looking forward to taking my OC up a few notches.
