how much do you want to spend?
only a slim 280 will fit in the top of the 500r. even then you cant do push/pull fans.
if you arent afraid to mod and spend some cash, the sky is the limit.
and we need to know whats in your rig...

Im willing to mod what I need to, ive already done a complete side window on the rig and ive modded some of the drive bays and hdd bays. ( Build is all Black and Blue) Not anything too crazy but it interests me. As of price im pretty flexible with anything. As of now here are my components:

CPU: i5 3570k
Mobo: MSi Z77a-G45 Thunderbolt
GPU: MSi Gefroce GTX 660Ti PE/OC
Memory: 8Gb Corsair Vengeance
Hdd: WD Blue 1 TB
Ssd: 120GB Samsung 840 Series
Cooling: H100i push/pull with Corsair SP 120 High performance eddition

The only thing im interested in cooling would be the CPU and taking out the H100i for something custom. (Hence why i did a side window lol)

Has anyone tried the plastidip spray on the 500r? Mainly on the top and front grills.
post #3695 of 4610
Has anyone tried putting a Black Ice GT Stealth X-Flow where the rear exhaust fan is on a 500r? If so did it work out well? Planing to use this for custom CPU watercooling.

¿Is there any way to improve or enhance the HDD rails on the 400R to further reduce the vibration from my WD Black?

What i would try doing is removing the HDD cages and the optical drive bays.
I did this on mine and you get SOOO much space for a REALLY THICK triple 120 with fans in push pull
You can do something creative with the missing optical drive or you could just purchase an external one
Because of the lack of HDD cages, you could mount the HDD somewhere else. there is plenty of space
or if you are using an ssd, there is a space behind the MOBO tray perfect for one or two ssds

Currently I have the zalman z11 and I'm looking to buy the 500r is it worth it?
