couldnt you fit it up top if you removed the mesh from the top? I realize most people dont want to have something poking out of their case... but using my rig as an example... there wasnt enough room inside the case to mount push/pull fans with the H100i... so I mounted the push fans under the rad.. and the pull fans are on the outside of the case on the top.. take a look at my build pictures if you cant imagine it... but it doesnt bother me to have 2 fans sitting ontop of the comp..

Aye, you could simply remove the mesh panel, in which case any thickness of radiator would fit. I suppose for some that would be acceptable, though personally I don't like the thought of that. Regardless, there are several options available to those who wish to install radiators, they'll just have to choose whatever method suits them best.

P.S. I like the green decal you added to your case.

so my new build featured the corsair carbide 500r and it is a fantastic case i must say.

i just finished up the build which included corsair's h110 AIO cpu cooler. made a build thread in the case mods section. worth taking a peek

http://www.overclock.net/t/1457667/h110-in-a-corsair-carbide-500r-w-radiator-up-top/0_100

mods can all be seen in my sig in the 2014 build.

also did full noctua pwm fans for full speed customization. this thing is super quiet when it needs to be. and moves some serious air when needed.

just wanted to say i couldn't have done it without the help of all the great guys here sharing all this great information. i'll throw up a couple pics if they'll ever upload..

1603508_10201470648958387_509193009_o.jpg?oh=58c70dfced7866c7790d608675b01685&oe=52CFFD8D

Nice work!

I have the same case (although black), same PSU, same monitor and same cooler. lol

Like the mod you did to fit the H110 up top, although for me personally I just placed it inside the case as having the fans in pull makes cleaning a little easier, although I'll keep your mod in mind. To tidy up that cut maybe you could think about cutting that tab off and putting a little bit of u-channel over the rough edges.

300R owners, have any of you experimented with different air-cooling setups? If so, what worked the best?

I've looked at it before and do understand that I'll need to drill out the rivets
Not a problem, I removed both ODD and HDD drive cage and fit 240 on top and 360 on front

Fantastic, thank you!

I'm going to cut out the HDD bays and the front half of the first optical bay, putting a 140.2 x 30mm up top and a dual 120.2 x 60mm in the front, with a 5.25" -> hard disk tray and fan controller in the top optical bays (build log is in my sig)

Nice work. Sounds like exactly what I have in mind for my 500R when I get around to doing a custom loop. I'll be keeping tabs on your progress.

Sorry for the less than stellar pictures they were taken with my phone. Would also like to compliment everyone all the stuff I've seen is top notch

if they are the same as the ones on the 400R and you simply squeeze the little handles together to pull the drive out.. find some way of doing the same thing without the little thumb handles.. all that holds them in are little plastic nipples that fit into the holes on the side of the cage.. how in the hell did you manage to break them already?
