a heat gun works 10x better than a lighter for heat shrink. it is a worthwhile investment if you think you will occasionally do sleeving projects in the future

Ok, I got my 500r on the way. Now I have a question for you guys and hope you can help. I have a h80 that I will be installing and everyting else is the same as listed in sig.

I was wondering what might be the best place to put the rad for the h80. On the back, top back or top front areas. Plus, intake or exahust. I would like to try to have positive pressure and keep everything cool. Also, depending on the position of the h80, what would be the best placement for the rest of the fans, or best placement to add fans to. I have a couple extra 120 fans that I can add if needed to the case, but probably will not fill up every possible fan location.

Thanks and can't wait to get everything moved into the new case.biggrin.gif

i would personally put it in the rear part of the case. I had 2 rigs 1 on top and one rear and the 1 on top got more dusty.

Hmmm. I guess I figured, if I did put it on the top, I would do intake. That would take advantage of the filters (there is a dust filter on the top right?). I thought if the top would work ok, it might be more hidden also. I could put fan on top area then rad and 2nd fan under inside the case. I really just want to put it in the best area with it looking as good as it can.

Nope, no dust filters. But you can find some at demciflex, great air filters!

Ok, thanks. I guess the best will be to keep the h80 as an exhaust then. Maybe I will just put it in the rear and then put another intake fan at the bottom of the case in the area next to the psu and add one exhaust at the top also.

That should still keep positive ariflow...correct. 2 exhaust (H80 at rear, a 120 at top) and 4 intake (2 at front, 1 side and 1 bottom). Maybe I wouldnt' even need to add the 1 at the bottom, or maybe add 2 exhaust on top instead of just one.

I would also recommend it to be installed in rear to avoid dusty rad and fans..




I just undervolted my CPU and got a temp of 24c-27c" idle.. Great case for airflow. I won't be posting my 400r here, maybe once i have my new PSU sleeved and got either Southern Islands or Kepler GPU smile.gif
