Corsair's Customer Service is the bees knees! Getting my case RMA'd is such a breeze!

changed mine around a bit, instead of mounting my radiator on the outside, i moved it inside and flipped the top fans to the outside of the top. 1 is intake, the other exhaust. lowered temps 1-2º C...

also gave me room to mount another exhaust on the rear

here's something interesting too, my old chromatic windmill controller's date will only go to 2009! lol

I'm getting kinda interested in the 500r case. Getting sick of having to move or add hardware on my Antec 900 when I have to. Also, I will be getting a Corsair H80 for Xmas and already know that I will have to take out my motherboard to put it in beings the 900 does not have a cut out under the board for easy access. My case also sits in a cabinet in my computer desk and it has to be a certain size to fit. The 500r would probably be the biggest case I could fit in and still have adequate room for airflow.

What I want to know....Has anyone here just recently purchased a 500r? I would like to know if newer purchases still have the same case issues with the rivets blocking PSU from sitting in properly, warped trays, etc.

My Corsair 400R case mod. a tribute to "firefly" ...Inside resides a i7 920, EVGA 560ti, EVGA X58 Classified, 12GB Corsair DOMINATOR GT, Corsair 850W and Corsair H100 which were sent along with the stock case from Corsair. The hardware will be updated by Corsair before the PC ships to their Hotel Suite for the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jan 10th - 14th. I don't know which Hotel yet...

Is anyone here using the 400R and a non-modular PSU? How have you managed the extra cables?

I have the XFX 650W Pro which has 10 Cables (Mobo, CPU, 4xPCI, 2xMolex, 2xSata) and 4 of them I do not need. Because of the extra cables I've been unable to close the side panel door (wire management side).

This is my take on this, although it's the Cogage Arrow, but Thermalright and Cogage are just the same, so they have the same size, also it's the Corsair 400r pic below

I still had clearance to put 2x140mm exhaust fan on top barely missing the fan clips by 1-2mm. as you can see, below the pic is the side panel with a 140mm intake fan mounted on the top part of the side panel where it helps with cooling for the cpu.

I tightly coiled up the unused cables, zip tied the coil and laid then down on the bottom of the case in front of the power supply where you would install the optional bottom fan.
