Is there any really easy "mods" you can do to this case?
Like remove hot swapps and such?
Like mods where you dont need to use a dremel tongue.gif

If you have plans to change something beyond the specs of the case, it does require some modifications. Things that don't require significant alterations are mainly bolt-on's and there are only a few.

What do you have in mind?

I have a non modular PSU, and id like to have better cable managment behind the motherboard and a place to put the PSU cables I dont use. Like in the HDD bays on the bottom, or the Hot swaps.

You can just make/fabricate a cover to hide your psu and cables. You can make one from acrylic or aluminum.

Something like this:

i have a non-modular corsair 650w psu and putting extra cables at the back is not a problem so long as you evenly distribute the cables. it does slightly bulge but nothing hideous or obscene.

Okay, my 800D is my backup server/BOINC cruncher now with the hot-swaps being a nice touch. I have to say, with the problems I had with it, it's still an excellent case.

Now, I would LOVE to replace this

http://i.imgur.com/NMAAF.jpg

with a better box and when the Bulldozer chips get released, I will need another box to put the guts of the 800D into for the Sabertooth/Bulldozer upgade.

Those new Carbide cases look perfect for what I have in mind. I'm tired of hacking cheapo cases...

There are pretty good specs on the 400R, but I am interested in the flat top 500R and was wondering what the fan situation is on TOP of the case... seems the specs are lacking in that area.

So, I am looking at buying 2 new boxes and would like them both to be the same... I also need to mount an RS360/RX360 on top of them...

I was wondering if Corsair George or someone else has an update as to availability and also some specs for the 500R top fan situation...

Thanks in advance!

Fans on top of 500R are dual 120mm or 140mm, both spaced correctly for radiators.
