Your case screams " You can have it any color you want, as long as it's black"

The area I'm interested in is the mesh door. The forward slant/angle just curious if a 120mm fan will fit on it facing inwards at the same angle as the slant. I hope that helps lol

I went for 500r not because it was cheaper, I really didn't like the roundness of 600t and not being able to have any side fans was big minus for me. It's not about quality but about their personal preference.

I get what you mean, the 600T reminds me so much of my cosmos and for what you get the price for a 500R seems fair and includes quite bit. I didn't enjoy the 400R because for me it looked like a HAF and the 500R (I like the flush top) just seemed to be a different style I have not seen before from corsair.

400R has same dimensions as 500R I believe, so this youtube review might help you.

I saw his video earlier and the 500R looks like it has a bit more play to allow some slight modding rather than the 400R's solid top.

The lack of reviews I've seen for the 500R is bugging me since I want to know more about it.

After now owning a Cooler Master 690 II Advanced and HAF 912 my next case must have easy to remove filters ALL around - this is where I'm disappointed with after seeing the front panel fan area filters of the Corsair 400r/500r respectively as they are not really removable unless one wants to eventually break the tabs holding it.frown.gif

Hmmm, this case looks alot more promising then my 600T SE did. I really tried to like it, but it just had to many issues that I couldn't get pass so I returned it last week.

heh still confused what measurement you want, I figure it's the side panel but holes are designed to be able to attach 2x120 or 2x140 fans. but I am pretty sure u know that. lol
and if u want two more 120 fans on front slant side which only has a bit of mesh
left to fit 120 but if u still wish to cut holes and place it.. from the inside u won't be able to place 120s unless it's a slim one because it will touch handles that mounts hdds, anyways let me show u the picture with a ruller.
