They work allright. They seem to have enough static pressure to get through the radiator nicely but they do get a little noisy when butted up against a radiator.. Honestly though, you can get away with using something like an H60 on a 2500K, they just don't get very hot. I would like to go with some new fans, something with white LED's that are good performers.. just haven't found them yet.

Add me to the owners list (fist time poster).

This is a really great case.

One question for the group, I have a 3.5" card reader from my old rig. Has anyone found a nice 3.5" to 5.25" adapter for a card reader (or *cough* floppy drive).

I will post a pic of my setup later (once I figure out how to mount my card reader LOL).

I will also add that a H80 cooler will not mount up top (400R) with a Asus M4A89GTD mobo. It wont clear one of the heatsyncs beside the processor. Mounts on the back just fine though.

Hey can someone tell me if the 500R needs specials screws or mounts to put on a fan? I was just reading a review on newegg that said he couldn't put a fan on because he needed something like that and I wanted to know if thats true or not. Would look through this thread but I'm busy atm.

To mount fans with the 400/500R you need special proprietary Corsair screws. Regular screws will work but they can be pulled through, not very safe if you ask me. Corsair did not intially ship the case with the screws, they made it right and sent me a batch (free of course). My guess is any case that ships now will have the screws, so I wouldn't worry about it. Worst case scenario is that you email their tech support and they send you a bag in a couple days free of charge.

I just got mine last week and awaiting my parts.

Question, I have a ASUS P8Z68-V Gen 3 Mobo, The 500R has a cable that says HDAUDIO, where does that go? I am new at this. Is that for a separate sound card?
