Like I just said I laid some of my fans on the top and they seemed fine the vented air from my rad even got them spinning. Had no scraping or anything. Also looking at your pic it doesn't look too different than mine. Mine does bow upward slightly but not enough to hit the fan blades. So idk what else to tell you. Also uploading a vid to show you it works.

Edit

Here is the link I am pressing VERY hard on the first grill and pretty hard in the 2nd. Couldn't really on the 3rd due to the rad screws. More so than would be applied with standard screws. The quality is low but i tried my best to show u the gap but its hard on a 5 year old digi cams vid feature.

SEEMED to me at first glance they would be okay too... until I actually tried to mount one...

Now I am feeling like twice as bad to think I got a substandard case. In your video, please show there is NO GAP between the fan and the grill... and put a fan on the END too, not just in the middle. That way, Corsair can maybe tell some difference and correct the problem.

It should not be a tight fit either... fan dimensions are probably not set in stone so some play needs to be there. If I carve my fans up, I suppose I can get them to fit that way, but that defeats the whole purpose doesn't it? BTW, that is a Corsair supplied rubber gasket!!! No way it can be used on top... well, I even tried 2 of the thinner white gaskets and it wasn't enough...

Thanks!

I have the top fans mounted externally but using a koolance fan shroud. the fans actually mount to the top of the shroud leaving a gap (which is ideal for routing wires)
post #2965 of 8657
Yeah just shoot corsairgeorge a pm man. He pops in here from time to time. Mine in the middle met the edges some but not that bad. Hope you can get that sorted out.

Done and Done. corsairgeorge and tech support have video link as well.

I would rather have a flat top myself.

I don't think there is a computer geek anywhere in this world thinks a "too narrow" fan mount design like this is cool... no room for manufacturing tolerance like it is? Yikes! Someone needs a heads-up somewhere. Mounting fans on top to allow space for a shroud or 38mm thick fans inside is a no-brainer...

Thanks for the video, Tex. To be honest, we never intended for the fans to be mounted on the outside of the case, and in the 18 months we've been selling it now, yours is the first complaint I've heard about this, so it's not exactly common. The inside of the 800D/700D has a ton of room for fan mounting, even in push-pull, so we just never hear about people trying to do this and having issues.

The case is not defective - we never make claims that the fans should mount outside the case, we didn't measure the outside indentation to fit fans including their bezels and as such, I have no idea how many fans might fit or where they'll fit, etc.

That being said, it's something that I'll keep in mind for future case designs. I honestly never expected people would want to mount a fan outside the case, but in your comments above I understand why some people might want to, now.

The 650D is a more likely candidate for outside fan mounting, and Corsair designed the case accordingly. There is plenty of room to mount either 2x 120mm, or 2x 140mm on the top... however, I think you would probably run into the same "indentation problem" if you tried to mount a 200mm on top (which IMO would be stupid anyways, lol). This is all good news for me because I will be able to setup push-->pull on a RS240/280 top radiator when I go to water.
