Few minor things I noticed with the 400/500R that could have been better:

Spacing between the HDD cage and each side panels. The HDD's are centered and have equal space between the left and right panel. The very bottom HDD sata cable barely fits in there on the non-fan side. Using a L-shaped Sata cable could possibly fix it but the cable will have to be bent extremely either way.
I would imagine everyone would want the HDD's interface side to face towards the right panel anyways to hide the cables for a cleaner look. So it would have been better if the HDD cages were moved at least half an inch to either left or right. Hope this make sense.

The bottom fan mount next to the PSU is a little awkward. If you don't have a Modular PSU, it's quite difficult to mount a 120mm fan as there's a chance it might interfere with the PSU cables.

Access to the front dust filter. It doesn't slide out as the bottom PSU one. In order to clean the front filter, you'll have to take off the entire front face. Once off though, the filter is easy to take out.

No explanation or manual details on how the fans work. Turns out connecting the 200mm side fan to the front connectors enabled all three fans (including the two 120's in the front) to be RPM controlled via the front panel switch. Sounds obvious but it should have been explained somewhere.

These are just some small issues one could possibly run into but YMMV of course.



Overall though, great case. I give it a 9/10 for everything else.

At least with the 600t you'll have easier access to clean the filters especially the front panel one.

Good luck with your choice.

CorsairGeorge, can I ask a quick question? I really love the 500R case, just awesome. But can you confirm if it will fit a H100 cooler up top? smile.gif Thanks in advance biggrin.gif

It's been posted in a couple 500R threads, also if you look at some of corsair's photos on facebook they have a photo with a H100 installed.

Edit: Here's a link to the photos thread.

The 400r/500r are great looking cases no doubt. I just wished they put more effort in easier separate front filter removal like in the 600t.

However for me already currently owning a CM 690 II and HAF 912 was a learning experience to what not to purchase in the future and that a case to where the filtering is not easily accessed for starters.biggrin.gif

If it does become a problem, it can very easily be fixed with a magnetic filter.... or hell we could even mod it to be magnetic ourselves.
post #60 of 4610
unless they can make the 600t white the same price as the black 600t i think i'm going with the white/black 500r.
