Yep, pages back, CorsairGeorge did say the first ones went out without. Just send a RMA requesting them and you'll get them as soon as they can get em to ya. The next lot will have them correctly. Was a simple mistake, but is disappointing. However, they are taking care of the customers that need them. Which is a huge plus. (other than just saying, well, you can buy them later if needed.).

Regular fan mounting screws will work but you can easily pull the screws and fan right through them. So technically I guess regular screws do work, but I wouldn't trust the regular screws in a position where gravity could take over, like the top. I have removed the front fan screws (8 total) and am using the regular screws that came with my fans temporarily and then used the Corsair screws to mount my top fans. I am still waiting on Corsair to mount my side fans though...

Here is your solution, go checkout the Corsair support forums, there are a couple of threads about this, copy the link to the thread, start an RMA and put the link in there saying you want extra screws. I have done this, they quoted me 2 weeks. First time I have ever been disappointed by a Corsair product. I guess thats what you get for being an early case adopter. Pretty sweet having to wait 3 weeks to get some stupid screws to mount the extra fans this case was advertised as supporting.

Other than that I love this case, don't let my screw gripe get you down, you will love it.
Hey thanks for the response.

I purchased my 400r on the 11th, doubt I was lucky enough to get the new batch :-/.

Looks like ill shoot corsair an email

Hi all,

Just registered on the forum. Been a long time lurker reading comedy posts on the bulldozer release. Pulled the pin on a new Intel System.


Bought the White 500r a few days ago, love the look of it but need some help setting it up.

I'm having problems setting up the 2 front fans, and side left panel fans with the front fan control. No instructions came with the case, it should be simple but I must be having noob case phase.

I have the one cable from the left fan, 2 cables from the front fan, and I believe a cable for the front panel.

Im using a Asrock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3 board, can anyone help on how it should be setup? Its driving me nuts.

Much appreciated!



Cheers,

Cheers,
Ok, you need to hook up the two front and one side fan to the controller. There are some female fan connector cords dangling with the other cords. Then there's a firewire cord and a USB cord that hook to motherboard. Finally there is a four pin molex power cord that needs to be hooked to the power supply.

understandable?

Is it just me or did everyone have a taller standoff in the center of the their 500r. I screwed my mobo on with it but it made my board bend slightly which made my northbridge heatsink rise so it's doesn't contact it properly ending in 100 degrees and a power down. I removed the problem standoff and replaced it with one of the 4 included and it is working ok now. Northbridge is still quite a bit hotter than when it was in my other case due to the heatsink separating and now my board is bend every so slightly.
