hey there guys!.. I just joined this forum.. but have been using it for years to read up on stuff.. but since the last year I have gotten HEAVILY into upgrading my PC and such.. I never had a whole lot of extra cash till recently but my current build is

Corsair Carbide 400R
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera
MB: Gigabyte GA990FXA-UD3
RAM: 8Gb Patriot "viper"
GPU: MSI Twin Frozr 760 SC edition
PSU: Corsair TX750M

Corsair AIO H100i
1x 500Gb HDD and 1x 3TB HDD

but as I have gotten bored and dont want to spend a ton of more money at the moment to upgrade further, I decided I went go after the case and mod it.. I ordered the side panel from a 500R so I could pop out the mesh and replace with an acrylic window.. while I've been waiting for it to arrive.. I did this!

If you cant tell.. the case didnt come with the flourecent green trimming.. lol what Y'all think?:

Just my simple 500r with a modded window, I plan to do something with the front panel when I get the chance.

well combatant, i tore apart my rig finally yesterday. i didnt get any pictures of the roof. the girlfriend took her camera. im pulling fans off today to swap in ap-15s. i can get pictures today or thursday. i didnt forget about you. and i looked at them yesterday. boy i made an ugly mess. its all good though. i plan to cut an old side panel up and make my own top plate to mount to the factory top.

Thanks for posting the pics. Whats your loop made up of?

After playing around swapping out fans on my H110 I can tell I wont be able to fit the ex280 up top so I'll either have to go with a thinner 280 rad like the alphacool st30, or maybe a thicker 240 rad. Not sure what will perform better.

Up front ill put in either a 240 or 360 if I think I can make it fit.

I'll think it through in more detail, bit for the time being I'm going to have a play around with doimg my own custom sleeving for the first time (just on extensioms initially while I get practice). Going to try using paracord since it's cheap and is available in heaps of colours.

Hopefully be getting started on the window mod this weekend.

Will the Corsair 200R fit Thermalright Archon SB-E x2?
post #3987 of 4610
right now, ek dcp 4.0 pump/res combo(about to change), over to swiftech uni gpu blocks on sli 670s, up to a raystorm cpu block, over/up to top mounted xt45 360, down to a front mounted xt45 240, out to the res/pump.
about to change out the ek res/pump combo for 2x ddc-1t pumps. the ek is a good pump and still going strong but its time has come to take a break.

i thought i posted this 2 days ago...

No it wil not fit on the 200r, according to corsair it will only fit a maximum of 160mm tall CPU heatsinks whereas the archon is 170.2mm tall.

Ok.. SO.. I know this is a bit of an old topic.. and seeing as I have already bought and paid for the panel and its been shipped ...it may be late to ask...

I have a Carbide 400R.. as you can see from the pictures above.. I recently purchased the side panel from a 500R because I am lazy and broke and the cost of buying the side panel with removable mesh is cheaper than buying the jigsaw/dremel etc to make cuts myself to my current side panel...

but what I want to know.. and make sure of anyway.. the side panel from the 500r WILL fit on the 400r correct?


I intend on removing the mesh and applying acrylic window to my rig lol unless that wasn't obvious already thumb.gif
