Airflow = Great with stock fans or even better with any replacements. Lots of Mesh panels. I personally replaced the 200mm side fan with 2 120mm.

Noise = Very low with stock fans. Mine is nearly whisper quiet. Only fans I hear are my H100's fans.

Temps = That would really depend on your system once you get your parts in it. With my system (listed in Sig) I get very decent temps both during idle and gaming.

So I've got the modders bug and will be ditching the mesh and adding a window to the side of my 500R in the next couple of weeks.

I'm also investigating moving from my current H110 to a custom loop .

What I want to do is grab one of the XSPC Raystorm D5 EX240 kits and add a EX280 rad. The plan is to have the EX240 either up front or on the floor of the case and then the EX280 inside the roof of the case with the fans in the top bay in a pull configuration (same as my H110 setup).

I wouldn't be including the GPU's in my loop for the time being until I can squeeze the blocks into my budget or possibly when I grab a couple of Nvida Maxwell cards once released.

I know I'd have to mod the drive bay to fit the EX240 rad up front, but has anyone had experience with the EX280 in the config I'm looking at?

ex280 should fit the same as the h110 did.
pull the hard drive bays and a 240 will fit the front IF you elongate the fan mount holes.
dont even think about putting the 240 in the floor. it would be A LOT more work than you think with nothing to gain over putting it in the front.

why didnt you put the h110 inside the case and the fans on top? the top has 27mm clearance and fans are 25mm

Great! this is exactly what I was thinking, just the EX280 is slightly bigger than the H110. I think it's about 3mm wider, 8mm longer and 7mm thicker.

My only slight concern is the extra thickness may interfere with the ATX plugs for the motherboard, but should be able to squeeze it in. Might be tight though.

You think the two rads would be sufficient for dual 780's?

Not in a rush so I have time to think things over.

i put an xt45 in the roof with push n pull fans. i had to move the holes closer to the fan/mesh side. corsair only worried about getting an h100 in the roof without interference.
when i first put my 240 in the roof, i slotted the fan holes to clear the 8pin plug. when i went to a 360, i moved/slotted the holes to the front of the case.
im tearing about my loop tomoorow, i should say plan to. i can take some pics with my phone maybe the girlfriends camaera and show the hack job i did. with some planning and measuring it can actually be done with 'pretty' results. i didnt plan a lot. i just went in headfirst without looking. bad move but its hidden by fans so im not bothered. i actually wouldnt be anyway. no one sees my pc but me when i pull it out from under the desk.

Some photos would be great if you get a chance. I'd love to take a look.

Will just give me some ideas for my future plans.
