Finally got the case up and running, as well as the H100. Should the side panel be an exhaust or intake? If I'm not mistaken it's an exhaust by default right? I've got 2 580 MSI Lightnings in my machine. I'd like to think an intake would be better for cool air, or is it better to exhaust the heat from the cards?

default is intake . it is primarily meant to direct cool outside air onto the vid cards

As already mentioned, have it as intake. Generally, people have the front, side and bottom as intake, and rear and top as exhaust.

It will work if you aren't using any fans on the inside. If you are using fans, I don't think there is a simple way to attach it. Looks good on the outside though. The mesh part of the case is pretty much the exact size of the filter and leaving it on the outside makes it much easier to clean for sure.

Add me into the list. I won a 500R at the Nvidia Lan 6 in october and am making the transition to it from a good but lacking airflow P182.

That + a H100 should make things run cool and look great. The P182 looks great, but the cooling flow just isn't up to par for the SLI 560Ti's with the Zotac OC Cooler and my Northbridge anymore. I ordered some new fans but I still think the 500R will overall make things work much better together.

Cool. If the 200mm fan is intake by default, then that's currently how I have my 500r setup.

Anyone here with a Corsair 500R with a thermalright Archon inside?

After i get that in, (with a little bit of force) I push the SSD/HDDs back in and close the fan panel.

do you use 90° SATA cable ? that's what I use, because otherwise, the cable would conflict with the panel

I have some questions. I looked at the last 20 or so pages. nice rigs guys.thumb.gif

I ordered a few parts already and missed the cheap 500r on newegg before black friday so i'm going to wait for boxing day when I get my i2500k and motherboard +SSD (all I need).

I'm coming from a antec 300 that has been extremly dusty and require lots of cleaning (case is on top of desk even and not on the carpent floor). dust clogs my 4870/intel stock heatsink and I hope my new 6950 stays fairly dust free until dec 26ish when I do my newbuild.

First anyone know where I can get in canada or somthing like it? shipping is $25+! they offer the side only for $20 less but its still $$$

Not a big problem because the 500r has filters on the bottom front and top i believe. Is the filter on the top easy to clean/removable also is the front removable to clean? I plan on having a H100 as intake on the top (more on that later).

Due to no filter on the side I plan on having it as outtake. so i will have 2 in front, 2 in top (h100), 1 out rear, 1 out side (whats the cfm of the 200 compared to the 120's?), and maybe add 1 in bottom. Will this give me a positive pressure inside (too avoid dust thru the cracks)? I understand the side is supposed to cool the gpu but the bottom fan can do that and i might add a fan as a pull on the hdd cage to insure air flow to the gpu from the front.

Lastly, installing the H100. I plan on having it as intake for the use of the dust filter (plus benchmarks prove its 1-2 C better as it cool air but heats up ambiant in case) whats the best arrangement for the fan/rad. Fan in mesh on top of rad pushing? Or rad in mesh with fan below pulling? (Both intake from top) I had hoped of doing a push pull but I see its not possible. I don't plan on OCing the i5 too much anyways and got the H100 as it was cheaper than the H80 and only $10 more than the H60 (assuming corsair is good on rebates)
