Dunno if my case was just a poor one or what but it rattles like mad, it doesn't sit on all four of it's feet properly, the stock fans moved no air, the rubber bungs are known to perish and leave black marks on everything they touch same with the C70 which are from the same time of manufacture, 500R mesh is too restrictive as my temps rocket when they're fitted (top rad mesh hasn't been on since started to watercool), cable managment space is a joke as even with the big hump cables don't fit lol. It's a case that was manufactured during the recession so I think its down to that but for the price, the define S from fractal is a much better case.
500R = £100-101
Define S = £70 with window
(prices based from my local pc shop)
I really regret buying my 500R as I've never truly been happy with it but just put up with it's existence, if your 400R is good that's great, wish you the best of luck with your future computing, got any pics?
