It will. thumb.gif But it will have to be in the inside of the case, as opposed to outside but inside the mesh, because of the inlet/outlet threads being at opposite ends; unless you're prepared to put a hole in your case? biggrin.gif Good luck with the water cooling. Is it just for the CPU or are you planning for the future 6970 as well? For a small pump, I'd recommend the MCP355 and you can mount a plexi res on top of it, saving you some space, tubing, fittings etc, or you can get a combo 5.25" bay res-pump; I think XSPC make a few of those models.

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.

bought mine about 3 weeks ago. no problems with my silverstone 1000w psu fan down or up

Anyone else having this problem from COLD BOOT when turning on the computer with their Corsair 400r 500r tower. When I press the power button on the case, nothing happens. I can continue hitting the button and...nothing. To solve this I have to flip the switch on my Corsair AX850 off and on multiple times to get it to work. I also notice that when I flip the switch off on the PSU and then press the power button, the white LED will flash briefly. Flipping the switch back on the "on" position on my power supply unit and pressing the power button (on front of the case) will almost always turn the machine on after this happen or unplugging the power cable and plugging in various times.

Whenever I turn the machine off for longer than 2 minutes it will not turn back on, and I have to revert to the steps listed above. Once I get the machine on it is fine. I've left it on for days straight now with no issue, even reboots fine. It's only when it's turned off for a period of time that this happens. Its really annoying. Anyone have any ideas?

I used to have the same problem with my 650D. It is a motherboard problem is think

sounds like your psu isnt recognizing that the circuit is being closed (between the ground and the green line). could be either a psu, mobo, or a switch problem. try jumping the connection at the main psu plug (connect the green wire to any black wire) and turn the psu on/off a couple times. if it comes on every time (leave it off for a couple minutes in between to replicate the problem yo are having) then move on to the switch. try a different switch connected to the mobo. pull one out of an old case if you have one and connect it to the mobo instead of the one in your corsair. if it works reliably then it may be a mobo issue

To fit the rad in the mesh area, the inlet-outlet threads needs to be positioned like so:

But the one you're chosen has it positioned like this, which makes it difficult to do the tubing:

you might bea able to pull off a cross-flow rad (with a fitting on each end). there is a small access hole near the front of the rad compartment on top, but i am not sure if it is close enough to line op with the fitting

either way, make sure to check the thicnkess when choosing a rad if you want to put it in the upper compartment (under the mesh but outside the case). only the thinnest rads will fit in there. may have been done on purpose so corsair could push their cpu cooling kits, which use a thin rad
