Pretty decent little case for the money... although it is easily improved.

Glad to hear that you like the case... pretty neat mod thumb.gif

The 400R was my first new case in 10 years. That's right, 10years.

My wife keeps asking me who I love more, her or my new computer case. I've been successful at deflecting that question so far. ;-)

That's a nice clean build you've got there thumb.gif

Gonna get a GPU soon? How about an aftermarket cooler? I gave up my computer for my girlfriend. Hoping I'll get back in the game in the future.

Thank you kindly. Took me a lot of hours and two attempts to get it that clean (had to swap out PSUs and move the CCFL around, and some other voodoo).

Yup. Looking for a modestly performing nvidia card (dual boot Ubuntu/Windows 7), preferably a couple-year-old GTX for under $100. And I've gotten a recommendation on an aftermarket cooler, and that will come in a few weeks I think. No rush on that, because I can't overclock this CPU. At 100% CPU, my core temps are running just under 70C right now, so I'm in the green.

That's a hard choice, bro. Hard choice...

Hey guys, sorry for not looking through the thread to see if it has been posted already. Had a quick question though. Has anybody successfully fit a GPU into the 500R that was longer than 10", and without removing the HDD cages to do so?

I'm getting a Gigabyte R9 270x soon, and there is a 2" difference in card length between it and my currently installed HD 6850. Just want to make sure it will fit without issues from anyone who has already tried.
