All you got to do is to mesure the length from your motherboard till the end of the PSU+ 5-10mm
and the hight from the PSU +5mm.

Then bend it to 90 degree on the edge of the Psu and then you paint it. thats about it. i think i have done it at work in like 20min ish.

Hey group...I have a 400r. I currently have it open...cleaning, dusting, changing fans...and depending on if my H60 still works I may or may not have to mess with my cpu cooler.

My question though is about the air filter at the front of the case. Obviously pulling the front off the case is no big deal but I hate having to mess with those foldover "clips" that hold the filter in place. Has anyone modded a filter to stick to the front of the case instead? Or are the DEMCIfilters worth it? Or any other mods to make a front air filter easier to deal with?

duck brand foam a/c filter. cut to fit and stab holes where the mounting clips/pins are. works a charm.

Interesting...thanks! How thick is that foam approx? Any feel for how much it affects air flow?

i have no idea but, even steel mesh filters that dont look restrictive were rated at 70% airflow. a filter is a filter. i dont think it causes too much of a loss really though. just use good fans.
its right around 3/16" thick if i take a guess. im thinking i remember it being labeled as 1/4" thick.

Thanks...a trip to Home Depot is on the schedule.

I'm putting some GT AP-53 (oem AP-15) fans in, so I think they will take it OK. We will see if I let them run at full speed or voltage control them out of my BIOS or not.

It has been a while since I made any modifications to my PC, but I just started work on a shroud for the PSU.
I am using 0.9mm thick aluminium and it works great, a nice balance between flexibility and strength.
So far it is all cut, bent and ready for drilling holes, which will have nuts and bolts to secure it to the case.
Unfortunately my drill bit became blunt and even bent when drilling through the case, it's very strong, which ultimately is a good thing.
I have drilled 5 holes and have 3 more to go, I just ordered a new cobalt drill bit so will finish the work when it arrives.
After drilling I will sand it all down, file the edges to make sure they're smooth, then spray-paint it a matte black.
I'll post again later with updates. Here are a few pictures so far:













In this last picture you can see the screws I will be using, M3 thread, 5mm long, socket button head. Secured with nuts on the other side.
I haven't actually tested to see if the nuts will attach, I'm a bit worried the screws are too short, although if that's the case I'll just buy longer ones.

Another 400r Q...looks like my H60 might indeed be failing. After a good blow out and new thermal paste (not *the* best, but a new tube of Noctua), my CPU temps are still too high. I am going to try to remove the pump and clean the paste and remount again (though the pump feels secure and you can't twist it). Failing that, I'll be looking for a new cooler.

In theory, the Corsair H100i fits in the 400r case. However, I looked at measurements and with my board (Asus P8Z68-V) it appears that the h100i would block not only 4 of my fan headers but also the 8pin power. It seems like I saw a picture of this somewhere here too. Has anyone used the h100/h100i in a 400r with a similar Asus board? Did it fit or were tweaks/mods required?
