Perfect! Thanks.

63 pages for the ownership of this case is quite impressive. smile.gif I wasn't sure if I was going to like this case when I first purchased it... probably because of the white LED's. I really do like this case. It doesn't have a bad price and the wiring management features were nice. I did however have one problem, and I'm hoping that someone else can shed some light on this issue.

When building my PC using the Carbide 500R (black) case and a Corsair TX650 Power Supply, I had issues with the mounting of the power supply. When mounting the power supply with the fan on top configuration, the power supply screws into the case just fine.

The problem: Seems like the PSU should be installed with the fan on the bottom, bringing in cooler outside air to cool the PSU as opposed to bringing in warmer case air for that feature. The problem is that when I attempt to install the PSU w/ fan down, I am only able to screw in the two screws closest to the motherboard. I can barely see the bottom right screw hole at all (no way to position it so I can) and I can't see the top right screw hole.

Has anyone else had this issue? I thought about removing the pads on the bottom of the case that support the PSU, however that wouldn't make sense since the two left side screws fit perfectly.

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone have 2 240 radiators mounted in this case? Or a 240 somehow mounted in the front?

Yes check my 'Corsair 500 a Few Problems' thread. I discovered this problem and describe a fix for it. I know others are probably just mashing down on the power supply and stabbing the screws in which is completely unacceptable IMHO. This case has other chronic problems also.

The issue should be worked out by now, but I am STILL WAITING FOR MY DAMN SCREWS CORSAIR!!!

That's good to know! smile.gif And sorry to hear about your waiting frown.gif

1) In your old cooling setup pictured below, did you have the two 120mm fans inside the case PLUS two fans in the stock location on the front? -or- did you just change the location of the two front mount stock fans?

2) Did you switch to watercooling because the case & fans were having trouble cooling your sli rig or did you just want to up the intensity of the build/overclock?

Any chance Corsair will start selling the see through side panels for the 400r like the obsidian series? That would be cool.

What are you guys buying as a filter for the areas there isn't one on the 400r?

the stock inlet fans are still in place with two extra on the drive bays. these are corsair units now. had the h60 for a while but as i am going to watercool everything i though why not chop the h60 up first for a laugh. i do alot of benching with this setup so cooling is paramount where as noise isnt.
