Watch the video time 5:10 and see how he lays the rad in the top and puts the block down through the holes from the top.

Thanks for that, but I have a 400R not a 500R.

im looking to buy the 400r and this will be my firts build so nervous already

i saw on corsair forums something about screws for fans not be included is this happening for all orders

and if i do wind up with that besides corsair where can i get these screws from or is there alternative to not waiting on them cause people seem to be stuck in limbo over there trying to get them

i would like to add one or 2 top exhaust fans to this as well

i just want to have everything ready unfortunately dont have the time to run into unnecessary problems

hey guys I come home and my fan lights aren't working, they are running though and the fan controller does work cause I can hear it get louder when I adjust it, but for some reason the lights just don't work, any thoughts? my corsair h100 LED controller light is on, it's just the case fans. Everything right now is stock no overclock. Help!! just got this case too, and also when I press the power it turns on for a sec then shuts off, then turns on and boots. I'm scared! ahaha what's wrong with it?

Just picked one up and it came with all kinds of screws, plus you can pick them up at any hardware store if you needed to.

Maybe the power connector for the leds came undone, and as for the power up, that is the motherboards normal start-up, nothing wrong with the case.



Couple of pic of the 400R I just got. Thinking of adding a couple white led fans in the top.

It will cover the area of the 200mm fan but it wont cover the whole mesh of the side panel, and I'm still unsure if the mesh is magnetic frown.gif

Yes it will work, the filter is magnetic. I contacted the guy that makes these filters and measured the side panel and gave him the dimensions and he can make a custom filter. Its about 20 something dollars including shipping to the US.

Hi!
Great thread! Loving all the fine builds in here smile.gif
Anyway, my brother might get a 500R, but I have a few questions:
01. Are there dust filters in the front?
02. Is the side mesh panel magnetic?
03. Does the side panel come with a dust filter?
Thanks in advance! smile.gif

I just confirmed it, the mesh will hold a magnet.
