I'll put up some pics tonight if I can get time. The backside is open with 2 120 fans pulling the warm air out. I'm going to cut 2 holes for a pair of 80mm fans when I find a hole saw.

Just got a Corsair 200R as a sidegrade/rebuild, I'll put it all together on Friday but i have some questions.

So this is right where the screw for the middle screw hole on the motherboard would go, but this pin is just taking place instead, when I install the motherboard do I just place the motherboard's middle screwhole on it?



Also, the 200R only came with around 3 or 4 removable standoffs, I'm assuming these are supposed to be the built in standoffs? But they seem to be molded into the case, wouldn't it cause grounding issues?

On the 200R, you don't need to use any standoffs. Just put the motherboard straight in and screw in where necessary. The raised middle standoff allows you to place the motherboard without it moving around. Its one of the many features of the 200R, although its one we've done without for years in budget cases.
It wont make any contact or cause grounding issues.

Howdy all, I'm brand new here.

Got myself an H100i yesterday. After much internet research I was pretty sure that it wouldn't fit into my 300R without some sort of modification (it depends on your mobo at the end of the day). I have a Gigabyte Z87-D3HP motherboard. As luck would have it my H100i and it's fans JUST cleared the RAM by less than a millimetre. BUT my mobo has an 8 pin power cable connection in the way, and there is simply no way to seat my second fan with that in the way.

I thought of mounting both fans on top of the case but I found that the cables were not long enough for the front fan. I didn't want to have to cut or drill my mesh or case in any way.

Then I got creative.

Don't laugh, this WORKS! It isn't pretty (I don't give a damn what a PC looks like, as long as it works well). So yes, there is a fan cable going around the back of my case, and yes it is stuck on with insulation tape and yes my "cable management" is not very pretty at all, but I really don't care because my cooler is working, the airflow in the case is decent and I didn't have to cut anything to get it in.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you, a rather unique H100i fan configuration...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

No, I have no idea why the picture loads sideways.

For the record both fans are configured to push through the radiator. I realise that this means some air goes through both but the temperatures are staying typically H100i low and i haven't seen any negative effects from this configuration. While I would hesitate to recommend it as a primary configuration for an H100i, it definitely works for me. So if anyone else with a 300R and a Gigabyte Z87-D3HP mobo wants to know if they can get an H100i to fit into their case without any modification then the answer is yes (sort of).

great thinking!, but i'd recommend to make both fans move the air in one direction, like both pushing/pulling the air out of the case.

Hey guys, just rearranged my 500R a day or two ago. Any suggestions on how to clean this up? I was thinking sleeved PCI-E cables in black. Any and all feedback is great. Also looking for a cable sleever!

Specs:

3570K @ 4.5
Swiftech H220 (previously H60, H80i, H100i - never buying Corsair Link products again)
Asrock Extreme4
G Skill 16gb
SLI MSI 670 Power Edition
Seasonic X650
3x Cougar LED, 2x 2150 rpm Typhoons, 2x Swiftech fans that I might swap out for Typhoons since I can't see them anyways (I used them because they were white lol)

Hey Hooy. If it was my personal build (Have a 500r also) I would definitely sleeve the PCI-E cables. I would also try to get rid of the "+2" wires connected to your 670's. Also I can't really tell from the picture but what are the flat black wires behind the 670's going into the grommet near by? I would try to dress those up also. As an idea (going off your fan LEDs) it might be nice looking to do some red cabel sleeving? It would definitely add some nice color touches thumb.gif
