Guess it's faulty

For the 500R I noticed that there isn't a filter for that side fan, are many of you getting a lot of dust in the case? looks like something Corsair overlooked when designing this case.

There are people who have made filters for the side panel with products from Demciflex. I have contacted them regarding a filter option for the 500r. I really want a filter for that side panel.

yup it might be faulty. You might want to call corsair about this. They do have a great support on their products. A friend of mine had some problem with USB 3.0 front panel using the adapter that came in his 400R. Corsair replaced not only the adapter but the whole 400r itself without sending the defective 400r case back to them.

On my 400r, the only way dust coming in is in front intake fans, maybe some little on top and side part. I think the side panel fans are useless, since it might interfere the airflow from the front and to the back ( some may have fan on the HDD bay for gpu cooling like mine ). That's why i don't install fans on side panel. Just my 2 cents biggrin.gif

Where can I get a side panel for the 400 or 500R (back side)?

I want to cut out the buldge to mod my 650D side panel for extra wire space...

I think this is what you are looking for. I dropped my jaw the first time I saw the bulge on the 400R/500R, it's such a great idea and I personally hadn't seen it in a mainstream case before.

Good luck, and post pics in the 650D owner club if you do it =)

I've only put it on today but yeah seems to work and that's the size. It attaches magnetically. I was thinking about getting a white one but I'm glad I went with the black for contrast.

I've had my case for a couple of months and have definitely noticed dust build up on the side panel. Less so on the front but maybe it's just not as noticeable. I'm about to put my H100 in it so will be interesting to see whether that fills up with dust too!
