Hey guys.

I've come into some unexpected money and I"m thinking of grabbing a 400r. I've read it needs special screws to mount fans. Is this just for the existing fans or does this apply to all the fan slots? And if so, does it come with extra screws for the other slots?

@siegfried

not all of them, the back fans uses cross-recess drive flat head screws or the usual screws for cooling fans ( http://www.endpcnoise.com/e/images/case_fan_screws.jpg ) while the front fans uses the long screws like this one ( http://www.legitreviews.com/images/reviews/1737/corsair_h100_023.jpg ) im not really sure what's the name of that screws. I believe the black fan screws are ionized, correct me if im wrong..Screws comes in the package.

So I got my hands on one of these. I gotta say it is pretty nice even though I have zero experience with cases and building computers since this is my first build.

But anyway, here's some pics. smile.gif

Right after I got everything set inside.

448

First time powering it up.

448

How it sits now.

448

Eventually I would like to go with some water cooling. I have my eyes set on the XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 but it looks like the radiator won't fit in the convenient radiator spot at the top without cutting it up. However I did find a radiator that might fit. I just ordered it so it hasn't arrived yet. but if it fits, I will be sure to spill the beans on it if no one knows about it.

Otherwise I am very please with this case and I am glad I let my buddy talk me into it after I was looking at getting a Haf like a n00b.

Here's a critique: Clean up the cables in the case. Pass the CPU power cord through the back and pass it in the upper left corner. Bring the sata cables through the grommets and into the back. It'll make a world of difference, and make the case look nice and tidy.

EDIT: As long as the rad is less than 35mm it'll fit up top. I have one in my GF's puter, actually two. Both are Black Ice Stealth rads.

Thank you! Sadly the CPU power cord is just barely too short to go around back. I tried that first and it is probably the one thing that I am most unhappy about. I will admit that my cable management is pretty crappy but it was my first build after all. When I go back in to install the water kit I will be rerouting the cables as best as I can. I am also thinking of getting a modular PSU to help clean things up a bit as well.

I guess the radiator isn't a big secret. The one I found and ordered is a Black Ice Pro II Radiator and it's 133 x 277 x 25 mm.

Is that the previous or the new generation of rads from Hardware Labs? It's also 28.60mm thick... =P

Good choice, enjoy the water cooling. Best hobby in the world!
