Cool - here's my plan:



This will mean cutting out the HDD trays (they aren't removable on the 400R but they are on your 500R) and cutting through the first optical bay. I may have to remove the optical bay to make the cut and then rivet it back into the case

Never tired too hard nor pulled those roughly , i saw first one almost broken with slightest of slight gentle look up when i took the case out from its box to look at it.Got it fixed by using industry grade glue and worked on that first broken handle but now it seems all plastic handles are falling off from the same spot near the bay holder.
Thinking to take them out all and not push them back in to the level till the plastic nip fitting into the holes to save some frustration.

Hey pcilliterate,

Thanks for the suggestion. Do you think the reduction in tubing is worth not sending the water to the cpu block first? My aim is clocks over looks. The idea was that I would hit the cpu first and then cool the fluid through the st30 before it hitting the vrm & nb. I need to do some research on whether it matters which order in the loop you have your most restrictive points

it wont matter as far as temps go. loop water varies by as much as 2*C between coldest water and hottest water.
according to what i read, the water flow after the most restrictive block determines the flow rate after it through the rest of the loop. what blocks are you using? vrm and nb blocks should be the least restriction.

*EDIT* - btw, i use that same pump/res combo right now but probably the older version.
also, the lines are running backwards on the cpu block. the center port is the inlet.
and yes, more tubing is more restriction. it doesnt add a lot but every .01 psi drop is .01 psi you dont have to push further or faster.

Hmm ... According to the manual from EK the pump outlet is the one on top, which I have in the drawing going to the center of the cpu block (inlet according to its manual)

I haven't found pressure drop graphs for the Koolance VRM & NB blocks yet but based off EK's comparing the Supremacy to their other products I imagined it would be fairly low-restriction

you have it going to the center, i dont.
the ek supreme is 3rd restrictive cpu block of martins tests
http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/09/26/i7-2600k-cpu-xspc-raystorm/5/

and its the worst performer also
http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/09/26/i7-2600k-cpu-xspc-raystorm/6/

im actually thinking about getting the danger den m6 because my local microcenter has 1 for $30.

So I recently bought a white 500r and swapped everything out of my old Antec 300. Beautiful case. My question is, when I slide the fan speed switch, I don't here any noticeable increase in speed- or feel a difference. I have the side 200mm fan plugged into the 3 pin switch that I assume goes to the controller and a cable from my PSU plugged into the 4 pin molex connector. Corsair's laughable 'manual' doesn't give me a lot of insight on how to properly hook these things up and I doubt the fans are just THAT quiet so can anyone give me some help on how these things should be set up if I want to use the proprietary switch?


Also, I seem to remember reading somewhere that the switch only increases the speed by 400 RPM per click. Anyway I can increase that?

no you cant. its a stepped voltage switch believed to be 5v 7v 12v. you wont hear a difference. the fans arent that great for cfm or sp. they do light up though...

Lame. And as long as I'm using that controller, there is nothing I can even do in my mobo BIOS either? I'm tempted to say the hell with the controller as long as I don't lose the lighting if its the only way I can get these fans to turn a decent RPM.
