Rig Update:

Sold my previous EVGA GTX 580 Vanilla because 1.5gb vram simply wasn't cutting it.

So I sold it and made a profit and purchased a

MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition 832MHZ 3GB

Battlefield vram usage averages at 1.5gb and peaks at 1.8gb.

Pictures below, enjoy thumb.gif

I got my 500R all put together. I fit a radiator in the top bay that actually fits. I did cut the middle plastic brace on the mesh top panel so it would fit just a little bit better.

I removed all the dust filters from my 500R. I don't need things restricting airflow. I use compressed air about once a month. A nice air cleaner in your room helps a lot as well.

How do you like those Xigmateks? They look really nice when lit up but do the perform well on a rad?

Cooling question, I bought a 500R and will be putting my H100 exhausting out the top, rear fan exhaust, PSU exhaust. So front 2 fans will be intakes as well as the side fan. They will all be stock fans, should I put in 1 more intake in the bottom of the case or leave it empty.
