If you have yet to find the answer, yes, 330R will be able to accommodate the H110i GT cooler.

Thanks.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't. It's probably not the best orientation because sleeve bearing tends to wear out quicker when mounted horizontally. But for the most part, it'll move a decent amount of air.

200R owner here, my stock intake fan at the front has broken so I'm here to ask some questions.

Firstly how do I go about removing it? I think it's as simple as removing the front panel and unscrewing the fan, I hope I don't need to move the cage inside or anything else.
Secondly is this the right type of fan to get as a replacement for the default location front intake http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CO-9050002-WW-Series-Edition-Airflow/dp/B007RESG7G (SP 120)

Thanks in advance, I'm pretty clueless and want to make sure I'm getting things right.

Did the case come with a fan controller get up like the 500r? if not then the SP will be fine.

It doesn't have a fan controller. Looking online at my mobo the system fan headers are 2 x 3-pin system fan connector, 1 x 4-pin system fan connector and 2 x 4-pin CPU fan connectors, so I think everything is prepared for the 4 pin SP version.

Am I correct in thinking that the SP version is superior in a situation where it needs to pull air into the case through a vent? This is where it would be placed image and it needs to pull air through the front vent in this image Is this the correct place for the SP or should I buy a normal AF version?
Thanks

All my fans are SP high performance fans and I can tell you that pulling or pushing air, it will excel at both. If you're pulling through mesh then the SP would be better, the mesh on my 500R is mega restrictive but the SP fans are managing with ease.

I have two SP high performance 120's in my 500r. They are set up as pull with my h100. There inside the case, and pull air through the top mesh, and h100 and do a great job. At 4.4ghz X5650 with HT,idle is avg 35c at 1100rpm. Fans are 1700rpm with 60c avg in b4 online. I never used these in my 200r though. I had the stock h100 fans on that and the top is far from restrictive.

What's the pin read out of the stock led fans? I want to cut of the led wire and use the 12v lead to power regular fans.
I googled and found a picture of it but couldn't make out the leads since the pic gets blurry when I increase its size.


TIA

Not the results I get when overclocking my AMD buddy ol'pal, that top mesh can go in the bin as far as I'm concerned, it's far too restrictive.

I figure it would be good to provide an update.

I didn't even worry about the stock LED option or controls, and just bypassed those fan connections in front and put in two standard Noctua fans. I had the white-on-black Phanteks everywhere else, and they look great - you can't tell the color when they are in motion, but when still, the white blades do look good on the black case. Thankfully the typically awful Noctua color scheme is not visible in the front panel of the 400R, so I don't have clashing styles.

So I have a Corsair 500R. Currently I have a Hyper 212 cooling my CPU but have been thinking about going with one of Corsair's AIOs. The thing is, if I'm going to go, I want to go all out. And while I'm thinking about going with the H100i GT they just released, I'm wondering if there is a way to squeeze the new 110GT into my case if I mount the radiator within the case and stick the included fans in the bay above where you're normally supposed to put a smaller radiator? I know that pretty much any radiator will fit if you're willing to not use the top grill but I would like for that piece to still be able to fit.

From my understanding a lot of it has to do with your motherboard. I recently purchased an EVGA Z87 Classified and it looks like the only potential clearance issues are the 8 pin cpu connectors. There is a tube shaped mobo heatsink next to it but it is lower than the 8 pin connectors. I don't have a ruler on hand and am wondering if anyone has some personal experience with putting the radiator within the case on their 500R. I have included some pictures and am also wondering if there are any additional concerns that I'm not thinking about and aren't immediately obvious. Thanks for any help.
