Question for you guys. Have a 275R with 2 corsair ML140's up front. This is moving 200cfm through the intake. I have 3 corsair AF 120's on the rear and top and they are moving 150cfm exhaust. I have good positive pressure right now but want to change out the AF fans to ML as the white led's of the AF fans dont match the white led's they put in the ML series... I also have a ML 120 on my heatsink which sits right by the AF exhaust fans which drives me nuts seeing the 2 different led's by eachother.

So to maximize my cases cooling i was going to put 2 ML140's on the top as exhaust vents. I can do 2 120's or 2 140's, theres not enough room for 3 120's. Then i will replace the rear exhaust fan with a ML120 as well to match. Problem is now i have 275cfm of exhaust fans and 200cfm of intake fans. I have a single ML120 on heatsink and a sapphire tri-x radeon r9 290x.

Will i still maintain positive air pressure inside the case and not suck in un filtered dusty air? Does the GPU and heatsink fan account for anything with air pressure? Do they cancel themselves out with air pressure and just help move the air through the case?

no, they do not take in air...but some coolers do exhaust air (like a founders edition, etc) and they should account for that..even though those blower style coolers are minimal airflow. It would be at the point of splitting hairs on maintaining postitive pressure where it becomes a problem (like 200cfm in, 190cfm out)

if you maintain at least 20+ cfm difference, you should be ok.

So right now I have 2 ml140s up front. This is bringing in 200cfm and each have a static pressure of 3. I have 2 af120s on top and 1 af120 on rear. The af’s move 50cfm with a low static pressure of .75

I know I have positive pressure right now obviously but want to switch the af series out for ML’s as the white led from each fan differ greatly. But if I put 2 140’s on top of case and a 120 on rear I will have 275cfm exhaust and 200cfm intake.

those specs are at max flow...and I know you dont run your fans at max flow...my ML140's get loud as all get out at 2k rpm to get the 97cfm...

Just finishing a video editor 7980xe on a Asrock OC Formula in a Carbide 750D. Five PWM fans, counting the H115i. That case is BIG - room for everything.

is there a q-fan control built in the UEFI? Usually, its like F5 or F7 to pull it up in UEFI to mess with it.

I recently pulled all of my fans off mobo headers and put them on a Corsair COmmander Pro. With iCue I dont know how to control them now...just using Link was good...and cue for lights...but iCue messed stuff up it feels. I might roll back.

Complete shot in the dark here but i own a Carbide 500R. I had an Corsair H110GT cooler rigged where the radiator was in the case and was held in place by the fans being in the compartment for the radiator at the top of the case. I'm positive I got the idea from this thread. Unfortunately that pump died but my RMA which is a H110i (which im under the impression is the same cooler with a different name) came today. here's the problem- since Im an idiot and didnt take pictures or notice how I rigged the radiator and fans up i can't for the life of me figure out how I had it set up. The radiator was in the case and Im pretty sure I was using only the long screws to thread through the fans and into the holes on the radiator. But I've been fighting with this thing for an hour and can't figure out what I did. Any ideas?

Lesson learned: if you rig something up make sure you take photos so you're not asking yourself 'how the hell' if you ever have to take it apart.

Hello all,

Anyone here in Canada with a 500R that upgraded the case but still has the 500R kicking around? Looking for some spare parts.

Cheers
