I decided against a custom setup in the end with this case, it becomes very hard to take maximum advantage of it. I just grabbed myself a Corsair h110 and a couple of Noctua NF-A14 PWM fans, made a few adjustments to the top cover such as removing the 120mm rubber grommets, cutting the middle plastic bar and narrowing the outer plastic edges of the top cover so it fitted better.

Yea, I don't personally see where handles would fit, or, for that matter, even be needed. It's already pretty easily picked up off the ground. Even in carpet.

Is there a proper way to remove the rubber material which the PSU is supposed to rest on in the 500R? I'm asking mostly due to fitment issues with my Fractal Design PSU. It will fit, I suppose, if I bend the metal bracket upwards a little bit. The PSU seems to just be slightly too tall to properly fit without some sort of adjustment to the case.

Instead of folding it upward, fold it down back towards the motherboard tray. Try that.

The rubber feet are just glued down, so a hairdryer or heat gun would loosen them up.

Folding them slightly upwards did the trick.

The only real problem now are the two bolts holding the case together near the back of the case. They somewhat lift the PSU up making it difficult to mount the PSU with more than two screws. It isn't too much of a problem considering I wont be moving the computer too much and the PSU is rather secure.

If two screws keep the PSU stable, I wouldn't worry about it. Try putting pressure towards whichever side is not flush with the screw holes. I believe I have 3 out of 4 screw holes fitted on mine.

Well after a few hours of fiddling with the location of hardware and fine tuning the fans its safe to say the build is done for now.

Only two real problems I ran into with the case itself was those two pesky case mounts near the rubber mats for the PSU. Trimmed them down a little and opened up a third screw mount for the PSU. Last problem was the lack of standoffs provided by Corsair. Only four instead of six. Luckily I had some extras lying around.

I know the cabling could be a bit neater up on the top where my disc drive is, but I am happy enough with this.


Looks pretty clean to me.
