There still seems to no confirmation regarding the Silver Arrow fitting in a 500r with the side fans installed?
post #2564 of 4240
the silver arrow is supposed to be 160mm tall. the 212+ is also 160mm. i dont think it will fit with a fan mounted in the top spot of the side panel. im guessing about 10mm clearance without the fan from what ive read in my search.

Ya i've no prob with those, but i'm in India so availability is an issue.
btw as far as the air flow goes does the 400r beat the haf912s? The front fans are x2 120mm vs 200mm(700 and 1000rpm)

Having the 400r myself, I think it has better airflow to begin with and has better air flow options

912 only has 1 fan in the front to start with and less overall fan options



The extra fan mount on the hard drive rack really helps cool my GPU. This image doesn't show the two fan slots on the side of the case

I don't see why you couldn't mount a fan on the outside if you had the correct screws.; although, the 400r has a convex (bulging out) side panel that provides extra clearance to mount side panel fans internally while still using tower coolers
