post #741 of 4609
Guys,

I just purchased the 500R black ...

Running Prime95 now on the rig (i7-2600k) ... and ... Seriously, does the 'fan controller' button work at all? I've set it to the 'low/med/high' settings, and none of them alter my fan RPMs?

I think I plugged everything in correctly ... the power/reset buttons work, so does the LED on/off...

The button does control the fan speed, but only if the fans are connected to the controller, not the motherboard. And it doesn't report the RPM values to the motherboard either. Do you not hear any difference in the noise it makes?

Corsair, I must say on the 400r you guys did a fantastic job on everything. This case can be used at the office because of the slick design and as a gaming rig. I must say i have built computer for family and friends and i must say your products are top notch and your customer service is the best i have ever seen. Even your products that people buy that are on a budget still have great reliability and everyone is still offered the same customer service. Thumbs up Corsair thumb.gif

UPDATE: I can confirm that the fans do indeed change speed with the fan controller setting smile.gif The problem was the fans are so quiet that at low/med/high they are pretty much the same unless you really put your ear close to it. (I tested by a) putting ear close to the front fans, and b) gently brushing the fan blades with a finger at the low, med, high settings... (You can hear it brush faster at higher speeds.)

(I'm used to tornado sounds (and LED brightness changes) with my fan controllers...

The extension cable that connects to the side panel is 3-pin ... unfortunate that Corsair decided to leave out 1-pin RPM leads ... (Yes, it would be confusing, but 1 for the side fan, and maybe just 1 of the 2 fronts, would be awesome smile.gif )

A bit disappointed with the amount of documentation ...

(Just a thought, it's possible they hacked the 3-pin to give one full 12v for the LEDs? i.e. the LEDs don't dim when I adjust the speed.... )

The fan controller connectors on the 500R are +12V for fan power, Ground, and then LED power. The RPM sensor was removed in order to provide the LED on/off functionality, which a lot of people wanted.

Hey guys, any tips for cable management on the 400R? It's going to be my first build and I'm trying to work out which order I should install the components in and where I should route the particular cables. Thanks.

That case has tons of room to route cables, you have plenty of space, and rubber grommets. Improvise and you'll be fine.

The order doesn't matter, just install things in an order that makes sense, and keep your cables tidy as you go, so at the end its just a matter of zipping the bundles together. I like to install all my hardware and then route cables by their function (aka sata cables first, then bundle them... etc.) Good luck! Building your first pc is an awesome/frightening experience! haha

Yeah the only part I'm really worried about is installing the CPU and the Hyper 212 EVO. I need to figure out how I'm going to go about it and how to raise the fan (If I can) so that it clears my RAM.

I just purchased the 500R white. I can't wait to get it in my hands. OOOOHH! It's been so weird without a case.
