doh.gif...Didn't consider the fan...stock fan installed is 140x160x26.5...I could install a 120x25 fan...a Gentle Typhoon, maybe...worth giving it some thought...still I don't know if Thermalright is giving measures with or without fan installed...is the cooler only 170mm high ? Or is it shorter and get to be that tall with a 160x140 fan installed ?

The fan itself should be fine but the clip is a different story. It's going to be real close...

Just finished packing my system in 500R and I'm really loving the case, it's definitely a tier above 690 II Advanced (which I previously owned), especially considering it costs the same (at least in Poland)!.

Now, the case isn't perfect and there's a couple of issues that if solved, would make the case as close to ideal as possible.

1st issue: Lack of dust filter on top! Side panel filter is not really necessary for me but not having it on top is just unacceptable, whether you have fans there or not.
2nd. Let's just say that the LED ON/OFF switch is absolutely horrible, not only it has really finger-unfriendly shape but you have to press it all the way in to achieve anything...
3rd. HDD activity and Power LED is way too bright.
4th. Fan controller doesn't seem to do much.
5th. Really hard to close right side panel with all the HDD cables being in the way, HDD cage should've been a centimeter or two forward.
6th. A minor issue: I'd be much better if you put two bigger vertical grommets instead of three, 90% of motherboards nowadays have angled SATA ports exactly between the holes.

TL;DR: MAKE DUST FILTERS FOR TOP AND SIDE PANEL!
Overhaul the front panel connectors; fan controller appears to be useless, LED ON/OFF switch is awfully hard to press, HDD activity LED is too bright.
Move the HDD cage a bit forward so there's room for cables


All in all I would rate 500R as 8 or 8.5 out of 10 (send me a dust filter for top and it's a 9.5/10), definitely the number one case at this price point.

I've had the case for 2 days now and I'm very happy with it.
When I get my graphics card back from the shop I will try to turn the side fan to make it an exhaust. I hate dust

Unless you add more intake that will create negative pressure and you will get dust anyways.

I have quick question, My friend Lizzy want's this case but I'm curious to know about motherboard fitting.

Newegg only list it as M-ATX/ATX will E-ATX fit in it? Like my Silverstone FT02 only listed as M-ATX/ATX but my Classified with fit just loose a few cable holes.

Fitment wise will that be her only issue? she might have with her Z68 FTW and the 500R?
