Nice looking rig my friend. Love seeing that NZXT 1000 powerhouse in your rig. I have the 850W in my rig. NZXT PSUs are powerful, stable with clean power. thumb.gif

Has anyone actually done an airflow test with these modern dust filtered cases to see if the incoming airflow is actually THAT different with a dust filter on or off?

If you have a fan laying around plop it in. I have two GPUs and I don't use it and my temps are fine.

You might also want to look into running the H100 on top as intake and then doing the rear fan as exhaust. Someone in this thread somewhere suggested that provides cooler temps. In that case maybe a fan on the bottom exhausting would help...

If you install the PSU to intake fresh air, it doesn't count in your intake/exhaust calculation...

You can add a 120mm on bottom as intake to make sure you run a positive case, if that's you want....

Personally, I didn't add anymore fans and my temps are ok (moderate OC on cpu, stock GPU)

I have a question about the 500R. Take a look at this picture (in this thread):

http://www.overclock.net/t/1142744/cm-690-ii-advanced-nvidia-vs-carbide-500r

I was wondering how one got the two extra fans at the front. They're on the left of the drive cage, right????

I like the look of that and was wondering if that's a mod or whether there is a port/bracket for adding fans.

I'm looking for a case around $100, give or take, that I can install a Corsair H80 cooler to. I also need a mobo tray hole at the top of the case/tray since most 8pin ATX power cables need to go in that area. The 1155 motherboards usually have the 8 or 4 pin connector in the top left of the mobo and with cable management I will want the cable connector (8 pin) going through a hole there so it doesn't have to cross the mobo.

I think there won't be any cables crossing the mobo except for the H80 tubing. smile.gif

I currently have an Antec 300 case and it's too crowded and what makes it worse is a tower air cooler! Ugh!

Is there setup pictures in this thread or other threads? I was wondering what options/alternatives I have w/o modding.

Thanks for any advice/info.

There are screw holes on both HDD trays for 120mm fan installs.

Like Mysticode said, the front hard drive cages have screw holes on the back so you can do push-pull on the cages.
Also, all the other things you're asking for are included in the 500R AND the 400R.

Sorry guys, but its time to say goodbye. I really hate OCN's new layout and changes all around to the point were I simply don't wanna spend my time here anymore. Wish you all the best. Please remove me from the club listing.
