I am looking for a windowed side panel in the US. They all seem to be sold out!

I have a 400R.

My i7-2600k (@4.4GHz) is cooled by a Noctua NH-D14.

I currently run two GTX 560 Ti cards in SLI.

I never ended up adding two fans to the top of the case, which I now plan on doing. I did add one fan to the side intake, but couldn't get two because of the CPU cooler. I think a slim-fit/low-profile fan will fit fine though, so I'll be adding one there too. I might replace the rear stock exhaust while I'm at it.

With the case cooling addressed, do you think I could properly handle the R9 290X cards in Crossfire? Depending on the game, I do enjoy triple-monitor surround (5760x1080), but some games I couldn't handle previously, or I really saw no benefit to the idea. I was previously completely sold on the GTX 970s, and mostly remain so despite some shortcomings recently highlighted, but I might be fine with the 290X cards as well. I considered the 295X2, but the cooling setup would have to change, and, more importantly, it's not compatible in OS X (I dual-boot Windows and OS X). I can't get proper CF/SLI in OS X, but I only game in Windows, so that isn't a concern. But the cards have to be supported well enough, so that leaves the Maxwell cards and the 290X, the 290 can work with modding, but I want something easier. The 560 Ti's were a pain in the ass and I don't think I ever got the unused card to actually throttle down to 2D idle clocks - it wasn't a well-supported card.

Basically, for this case, and also considering the fact that my CPU under stress testing can get around 85ºC IIRC (been awhile since I tested!), though gaming it doesn't get that high.... can my setup even handle the heat of the 290X in CF, or am I better served sticking with the 970 in SLI? I'd consider the 980 in SLI, but dammit that's a lot of extra dough for very little return.

Ello everyone! Didn't know there was a 500R (well... carbide club)! Can I join!? Going to be modding mine over the next few months before handing over the entire thing to my girlfriend for her Uni studies (motion graphic design), My build blog is in the sig, I stall be picking up some thermal paste and pads tomorrow for my watercooling of the VRM and NB and I also need to buy some acrylic for when I make my hidden compartment for the hard drives etc. biggrin.gif

I tried to search for this, but can't seem to find a clear answer:

Is it possible to replace the front fans with new LED fans that retain the ability to control the LED's through the front panel light button on the 400R?

I guess, if not, than I assume it's easy to replace them with two 120mm LED fans that connect to a motherboard header? Would they be able to connect to the power source pre-wired in the case (which is also connected to the light switch)?


BTW: I'll be giving the 290X a shot. In a little while, after I get the first 290X Lightning and put it through its paces, I'll get a second one. Could only afford to get one at this very moment, but income tax return just came in! biggrin.gif

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm guessing that the button for the LED's can still be used with other LED fans if you remove the stock fan connections and put them on your other LED fans. It should work as the LED's will all be wired the same way and again at a guess, I bet they use one of the 3 wires to power the LEDs. The fans only technically need the red and black wires to work and the stock fan controller just limits the volts/amps to the fans to control their speed. (All theory but given fans are simple devices I gather this is how they work on the X00R's)

the corsair case led button uses the wires 3rd pin/wire to supply power to the led. the 3rd wire is usually the rpm readout. it cant be used to control the led brightness on a regular led fan.
yes the fan switch just switches between 5v and 7v and 12v. since the led gets its power from another source, the led button, the led doesnt dim with fan rpm like normal led fans do.

Dang, so in order for it to work he'd need to rewire the LEDs?
