Just showing my first OCD thought out rig. I actually finished the rig back in Feb from then on I've just been modifying it to give it the best airflow possible as you will notice. Also my whole point of this build is to give it a professional look and use of it for daily use but also able to handle intense stuff.

My computer is placed in my closet because I don't really want to hear any the fan noise and also to prevent dust getting around, I also raised it up 4 feet from the ground because I really don't like dust getting into my rig. To further decrease the dust getting into my case I actually used Demciflex on my intakes (side, front, and under) and inside the Demciflex I have dust filter material foams(my ocd-ness). Only draw back is my wiring has to be LONG about 30ft long, but well worth it.


I'm not really into the whole "disco lightings" so instead I just put in 2 ccfl on the top.
Yes I have two black noctuas(AF15) spray painted it. and I'm planning to paint the other 4 (F12s on cpu cooler and P14s on top exhaust). Since I got most the part on sale(all new) I had some left overs and just used those to fill out every single available fan mounts plus more in this case.

^^^ This might look gimmicky but I put it there, experimenting with the airflow and it works because it blows alot of cooler air to the bottom gpu (my primary) now most of the time after playing GPU intense games for like 5 hour straight the GPU temp ( SLI MSI GTX 660) never goes up 68, before the hottest its gotten is 73.

Surprisingly my experiment with my very first build to give it a good airflow and dust defender worked because from the time I finished the build in Feb up until now I have not cleaned my rig yet just checking up on stuff and from the looks of it I don't think I need to clean it for another half a year maybe.
this one's too

Quick question guys, will the Thermaltake Water 2.0 CLW0217 240mm cooler fit in the top of the 500R? It states the radiator is 38.3mm. I have an H100, and its radiator is 27mm.

I'm not currently in front of my case, so I cant just look and find out.

I'm assuming you'd want the top mesh panel to be closed with the radiator inside, in which case, 38.3mm is too big.
I haven't watercooled yet myself, but based on other comments it seems that any radiator approximately 34.5mm or less should fit comfortably.

Ok, so that is the max size it will fit and still allow the mesh cover to fit. Yes, i would like to be able to fit the mesh back down, but I might leave it off if I decide to try this new cooler.

I will have to measure and make sure when I get home today. But, Im pretty sure you're correct.

Thanks for the help.

I have an H110 which is 29mm and I had to cut the ribs on the sides of the plastic frame for the top cover to fit. It seems like 27mm is the limit for an unmodified cover.

put the rad inside and the fans outside. it is seriously not a problem and everything fits

Just finished doing a couple mods to my 500R, will post some pictures once I get the rest of my parts for my new build (new CPU, Motherboard, RAM, and Graphics card, just waiting for the Graphics card to arrive). But I made a window for the side panel to be able to create positive pressure in the case and relocated a drive cage into the 5.25 bays to create better airflow into the case.
