    Hey we know each other from Windows 7 Forum's.I can do the new case picture's. I've had it 3 week's tomorrow.The old is history.New Carbide 500r is better.Intake fan's and top case [H-100i land] have dust filter's.PSU area at bottom has a long pull-out filter and room for a 120mm. fan.It has 2 front panel usb 3.0 w/usb 2.0 adator for mobo' without usb 3.0 headers.The side panels are white.The left panel has black mesh, instead of it being clearThe fronttop have white on the outer ends and black mesh over fan/drive bay areas.Top panel you jst push and it unlocks and comes off.It also a cutout for radiator tubing up top.The fans have white led's.Wire management is terrific.My H-80 started leaking after took it out the old case.I'll probably have the H-100i on the first Weds./Thurs. next month.By the end of summer my pc will be new again.Asus Crosshair V Formula- Z, AMD FX-8350, OCZ Vector 256gb. ssd, Seagate Barracuda 3.0tb and a GTX 660 ti are all going in it.I may add 16 gbs. of Corsair Vengeance 2133 ram at the end and then get a cheap case for the old parts. Put 7 Professional on it and sell it.

    I have the 400R that came out prior to the 500R and is very similar. I really like mine.

    Hi brkkab123 and welcome to Eightforums.

    Too bad you old casing died on you. Good luck installing everything into the new casing. And some pictures would be nice indeed .

    The only thing I don't like is Corsair's lack of documentation.The quick start guide is a joke.It need's more detail.All it cover's is what's printed on the box and a vague screw description.No new builder's could go by that guide.Picture's will be added once pc is up again.Only pc I have and webcam is unusable without it.

    Decided to go with the Corsair Hydro Series H-100 instead of their newer H-100i.Newegg purchaser's gave the new bad reviews of the H-100i, mostly due the fans, the new reservoirs fan connetions and Corsair Link being buggy.The H-100 and 5-piece outer case magbetic dust filters will arrive next week.

    The dust filter'arrived yesterday. I would definitely recommend Demciflex filter's to everyone. The edge'of them are magnetic and they go the outside of your case. They're made for specific case's. Just do a search for them as follow's. Demciflex - case manufacturer and model [example: Demciflex - Corsair Carbide 500r ]. It look's like the Corsair Hydro Series H-100 may arrive today, instead of tomorrow. It was about 50 miles away according toFedEx' s tracking last night.
