Hey! I just got my 500R. Its in pieces at the moment tongue.gif but here's a link to my build log: http://www.overclock.net/t/1532397/build-log-carbide-500r-window-and-water-cooling#post_23326581. It'd be awesome to get some suggestions from you guys. I'm new to the site and this is my first ever build log so let me know what you think. Also I love the 500R. I've been rolling with the original phantom for a while now but I liked the aesthetics and size of the 500R too much to ignore it!

hey guys, can anyone tell me about any suggestions for mods you may have? here is my current setup. Can i improve on the airflow at all? I have the side 200MM. would you suggest i run a clear side window and change fan sizes? any advice at all i would appreciate. one more thing Im in a dillema. the bottom video card radiator takes air from the bottom middle 120mm, and shoots it thru to the front 120mm exhaust fan. Im trying to get a duct going to pipe the air-tight almost air channeled thru and out. But above my front exhaust (sounds funny i know) i have an intake. so is that hurting me because its taking stray hot air from the lower 120mm fan that exhausts? (ie heat rises)?

Thank you!

use every single fan you have as an intake except the rear fan. use that as an exhaust.

Can you explain to me the logic behind it so I can understand and apply it to future builds? This is my first modern build in a little while but the reason i screwed it up was because I was thinking heat rises and i didnt want the top fans to keep blowing the rising hot air back into the case (the Corsair H110 is located copletely outside the case). posted a pic.

finally what of positive and negative air pressure. wouldnt one rear exhaust in the wholecase have a tremendous negative air pressure impact?

correct, heat wont rise if you push it with a fan. few fail to realize this even when you show them a video of a fan pushing HOT smoke filled air DOWN with a fan.

5 intake fans and 1 exhaust will be positive pressure. no way around it unless the intakes are all weak fans moving no air and the rear fan is a turbine from a jet.

Im sorry but i still dont understand. Can you explain how this method will cool better than the current method? My main concern and or thought process the setup arrangement was the method i chose is just assisting natural heat rises theory.

hot air cannot fight a fan pushing it down. hot air will not rise AGAINST air flow. without airflow, heat rises. using a fan, that hot air will go where the fan tells it to go.
turn on a ceiling fan in the winter. you push that nice warm air DOWN into the room.

what ive said to do is done all the time. if it did not work, no one but the dumb and unteachable would do it.

I'm thinking of buying either the Corsair 200R or Corsair 300R as my Computer Case for my first Build. Which one should I go for?

Depends on where you plan to put the case, how much space you have there, and other factors.

I have a 300R and a 400R. The 400R is frankly much larger than I need, but I love the amount of room it has for me to get my hands in there. The 300R feels just right to me for a standard ATX build. If you are going for a more compact build, I'd go for the 200R.
