Do they not include a manual any more? Mine came with a piece of paper that had pictures of each different kind and its use.

Hey guys... kind of new to this forum. Just got a white 500R and I got a few questions. I ordered a H100, which is going to come by monday, and I read that pull/push isn't doable if you want to put the cooler inside the case because it conflicts with certain mobos. I have a z68-v pro/gen3 mobo and my plan was to put the h100 inside with 2 slim 120mm fans attached pulling and have 2 140mm fans right underneath the mesh pushing air out. All 4 fans would be connected to the H100. What do you guys think? Is this doable, or will it still conflict with the mobo? Will getting slim fans be even worth it, seeing how they won't push (or in this case, pull) that much air?

Also, I was wondering how you can take the filter out of the top mesh of the case. I know it will constrict with the air going out. As you can see, I want to blow air out at the top, and not in. If I can't do the p/p with the slim fans, another thing I thought of was to either put the 140mm fans under the mesh and the h100 in the case or vice versa. Either way I put it, they will be pushing air out. Which way is better to do or does it not matter?

I have the fans pushing out with my H100. The H100 in the top of the case and fans inside. The problem is there is no room for fans under the mesh at all with the H100 installed. If you mount the H100 inside with fans and fans under the mesh I don't *think* it will clear the MB, does not look it to me. To take the filter out it's a flat head or pair of needle nose and bend the metal tabs. I'm overclocked to 4.320 and idling at 24C with push only on medium.

oh, wow 24c, that's pretty good. What's it like while using it intensively, such as playing a game? And do you only have fans pulling from the front and side? And pushing out at the rear and top? And I'm assuming that you're not using the stock fans that came with the H100?

I know that there's not room for putting a fan with the H100 under the mesh unless you take the mesh out and that the h100 combined with fans inside the case won't work, but do you think it can work with slim fans? And I mean putting it inside the case, not under the mesh. I can't really tell since I don't have any of it in front of me =/

You tell me how many mm a slim fan is and I will measure it for you. As the fan setup yes as you explained. I'm running 9 fans total including the H100 fans. 59C is max I have ever seen. I'm currently running the stock H100 fans. The tim is very good stuff also. I'm enjoying this PC but i'm already moving on the something else.

I believe slim 120mm fans are, from what I saw online, 12mm. Thanks, by the way! smile.gif

I'm wondering, are you ocing your ram and gpu's? Also, do you think it's better to put the fan under the mesh and the H100 inside the case pushing air out or what you have? And what do you mean by tim?

I got the best results the way I set it up and it looks allot better.both of my gpus are overclocked and my ram slightly. TIM- Thermal Interface Material (on the H100 cpu block)

I have a question. I got the 500r and the H100 yesterday. I have everything in the case except for my 2 580s. I'm running into a problem trying to get the 8 pin power connector hooked up to my motherboard (asus p8p67 pro). The connector is located in the upper left hand of the motherboard. I have my cable running through the little gap in the left hand corner. I have tried messing with this for hours. Seems like one of the 4 pin connectors at the end of my PSU cable is longer than the other? I'm coming from a Silverstone FT02 where it was fine, but in here I cannot seem to get it plugged in. Does anybody else have this issue frown.gif ?

I also notice that there appears to be a 3 pin fan adapter looking cable coming from the 500r? What am I supposed to do with this (if anything at all)?
