Hey guys just ordered a 500R (Arctic White) so I'll be in the club shortly.

One thing though, I ordered an extra 2 120mm fans that I was going to put in the top, would you suggest getting another 2 120mm's for the HDD cages? Where all can you install fans? I plan on using a CPU cooler though, so I can't put a fan there.

tl;dr: Got 2 fans for top, should I get even more additional fans?

Well, I use my 500r with stock fans only but I'm not hardcore overclocked. Temp is in the normal range at low speed.

HDD cages fans are going to help mostly for your graphic card (cards ? SLI or Xfire ?)

For a normal build with minimal OC, stock fans are acceptable smile.gif

Update.
To the ones asking about a fan filter for the 200mm side fan I have found one that will work.

It isn't a perfect fit but it works.

can someone with a 400r give me measurements i want to get 2 of these filters http://www.demcifilter.com/ one that covers the whole side grill and one that covers the top

and i want to have these filters before i get my case in so can someone measure for me those 2 spots so i can give them to the site

there being a little picky with the measurements if you can help me out that would be great this what they replied to me from the images i sent them

"Please have a look at the attachment and send me the exact measurements 1-4 as indicated on the attachment. If you can do it in mm it will be great.(more accurate). We want the filters to fit exactly right.

We will make the filters to your precise measurements."

greatly appreciated

Got the white 500R a couple of days ago. Very impressed with it, except for a few things:

 

  1. Side panel, usually configured as intake has no filter, whereas the top 240mm usually configured as exhaust does. Kinda pointless. The top filter+grill is very restrictive too.
  2. I wanted to take out the top HDD cage and use only the bottom one so that the top front 120mm fan is at full blast towards both the GPUs. But its impossible to use the last slot in the bottom cage (I've got 3 drives). If I use a straight SATA connector, the side panel won't shut and if I use a right angled connector, it won't fit because the slot is too close to the floor. Hence I've had to leave the top cage and remove the bottom one.
  3. The reset switch and the LED on/off switch should've been swapped - its very easy to hit reset by accident and quite difficult to toggle the LEDs.
  4. The LEDs on the 200mm fan have a blue tint to it but the 2 120mm fans have pure white LEDs.

 

 

Still, I'm impressed. A worthy downgrade from the almighty 800D. thumb.gif

Hey I have the 500r and a TX650M and I had no problems mounting mine, although it doesn't use a couple holes but there is corners/ slots the screws sit firmly into. I haven't experienced any problems with it.

Overall I must say I am very happy with my 500r! I just wish it was slightly wider so there was a bit more clearance in the back of the case for cable management but I guess i just need to go through and re-wire it until I am happy! The case works great with the H100!
