I have 2 cats so I decided to do a simple fan filter mod for the front of my 500r. Im sure most of you guys are already very familiar with this case so I'll keep it short and let the pictures speak for themselves. First I bought this fan filter material

Here is what case looks like without the front panel.

Using a sharpie, I traced the 2 fan holes onto the included plastic mesh material and then cut them out.

I then cut the foam filter material to fit inside the front panel like this.

Next I popped in the stock plastic mesh to hold the foam material in place.

And thats it!

Has anyone come up with a way to hook up additional fans to the 3-pin lead that goes to the fan controller? (*without* losing RPM sensor support)

I was thinking of hooking up my CPU fan and exhaust fan to the 3-pin lead, however that means some kind of splitter to split the 3-pin 3 ways: side fan, exhaust fan, CPU fan, PLUS some kind of adapter to retain RPM sensor functionality.

Anyone?

(My CPU HSF is an Antec 620 liquid cooling, and it's more than sufficient at stock, so hooking it up the fan to the controller would be great!)

@IamLoco, I would run those wires from the PSU straight into that first grommet, then seperate them which ever way they need to go. Also, the parts of the wires that are not covered by the stock sleeving, just use some black electrical tape to hide the ugly colors. The SATA cables should be routed through the same grommet, looks cleaner plus they kind of fall on top of each other and blend into looking like one wire. The 3.0 USB cable should go through the same grommet as the SATA cables. It'll stick out and bend into the grommet but it looks better than coming from the bottom. I did all those to my 500R and I think it looks pretty clean. Good Luck. thumb.gif

Positive pressure smile.gif have more fans (cfm equal) in the intake position. This forces air to find other ways out of the case, and air won't naturally flow into cracks/openings like pci slots

Do you need mounting brackets to install a 2.5 inch ssd in a corsair 500r?

What's the internal ssd support they advertise?

Hey guys got my 500R today. I wanted to to a clear window side panel so I popped off the mesh and here is what I've come across...

700

448

As you can see this lip is in the way of putting in a sheet of plexi...

I could try to dremel it off but that would ruin the nice lip it has and would be hard get some molding on it.

Just curious if you guys had thought of anything for the window or any suggestions.

EDIT:

Got a little impulsive and just took a large plyers and bent back the white lip, ordered a piece of grey plex and gonna bolt it to the front of the panel.

Hey,

Been working on my case but seem to have a problem with some wiring..

There is this wire tip that came stock with the case but I can't find anywhere to place it on the mobo.

Gigabyte Z68 UD3H for reference

Anyone know what it's for and by chance where it goes?

Appreciate it.


EDIT: Of course, 5 seconds after posting I see that it connects to the 200mm fan.
