[Build Log] Fractal Design Core 500 - Page 2

Just wondering, why didn't you go with dual 140mm fans on the top for intake?

I already had the 120's, but they are more than enough.

Hi guys, quick question regarding this case, will it take a h100i gtx in the roof panel? Sounds daft, but I wasn't sure about the dimensions. The manual states radiators are limited to 100mm thickness including fans, but I'm not sure how thick the h100i gtx actually is? Or even if the h100i gtx is the best 240mm aio to get?

Thanks

Ian

I think Hardware Canucks used the rad you are asking about.

Probably will be tight, but should work.

Altogether, you're looking at using around 50-55mm of space in the top.

I see. Glad they're working out!

Do you have a glory shot of cable management?

Does anybody know if the PSU bracket is removable? I've got a 160mm psu I'd like to use with this case, and if I could push the PSU back a little further that'd be perfect. Maybe even angle the PSU a little for better clearance. And how wide of a card do you think would fit? Would something like the super fat MSI R9 390, at 51mm thickness fit you think?

edit: managed to find the answer for the Node 304: http://www.overclock.net/t/1266342/official-fractal-design-node-304-owners-club/5930#post_24110160. Also http://www.overclock.net/t/1266342/official-fractal-design-node-304-owners-club/4480#post_23182330

If the mounting bracket is the same, then I'd assume that the Core 500's PSU bracket is also removable.

I haven't used the Node 304 but from what I've gathered it's basically the same situation with the power supplies. The bracket is removable with a screw holding it in place.
