I am very happy with the result. The Thermalright Shaman really keeps that 6970 cool and quiet.

Cable Management. You should have just enough space to get those PCI-E cables through the back grommet and up to the card. What about the CPU power cable, does it not make it all the way to the top through the small hole? I know they are very hard to deal with and hurts your hands, but they look much better when they are out of sight.

Love the SSD position. No fuss no mess, and gets you the great air flow you want from a case!

Nice build buddy, and great desk!

My CPU Cable makes it up around back and through the hole, but there isn't enough slack to plug it in. I'm not sure if this is a common thing with the 500R, like the hole is just barely too high, or if the cable on my particular PSU is just short.

Interesting to see xciter327 routing it along the Mobo like he did.


I gotta say though, I am really torn on the case color. I know Black is a good choice for my particular set-up, but the white just looks so damn good.

were you able to put fans on those rads, I had trouble fitting an h100 in my 400...the 8-pin on my gene z made it a small pain?

500R was given just a little more space to fit the rads and fans if I remember correctly. But it's a mater of mm. I had not problems at all, it all fit together perfectly.

I was able to fit the h100, yet I had to give the 8-pin a lot of slack to run it under the rad. I hope to be able to add enough slack (using the hole right over the psu to route the 8-pin).

Both the PCI-Express cables and the 8 pin power for the CPU are too short to go trough the back. I am trying to find the box with PSU cables that came with the OCZ, but I think I have lost it somewhere. I am gessing that I could just buy longer ones right?

Or cheaper yet, get some sleeved extensions. That will change the whole look of the computer and provide you with the added lenght needed to clean up the inside. thumb.gif

I have a tx750, and the 8-pin routed just fine...i could feed it through the hole closer to the PSU if i need more slack (which I likely won't need unless I get a custom loop, which I plan on doing) BTW @Rognin should those rads fit okay into a 400R or should I mount the dual rad externally? Furthermore, what length of tubing did you use? I'm quite curious about the Nat-inator...
