  1. Hi, I recently purchased a CoolerMaster H500P and I must say i'm pretty impressed, It knocks the socks off any case I have ever purchased. To get to the point of the thread: I am using the 2 stock 200mm fans and the rear 140mm fan along with a HUGE CPU cooler block (Be quiet Dark rock unit), when I max the CPU out it is exceeding 85 Degrees In temperature and keeps rising. (I am using a i7-8700k Not Overclocked). I know that running this hardware at these temperatures isn't a big deal but i want this system to last me along time since I have a lot of plans for it down the line in terms of upgrades and changes, And as far as I am aware you want hardware below 82 Degree's for longer term health. I am using Intel's XTU for the bulk of temperature information. My aim is to have the computer run near max CPU at as low a temperature as possible for reasonable lengths of time. (I live in Scotland if that helps so its usually reasonably cold). I have looked at top mounted fans but am unsure if i can support more RGB fans without buying the Coolermaster Fan hub and what would be better 2x200mm vr 3x140mm, or should I stop being a peasant and go for a water cooler if I expect to reach some temperatures. I am not made of money but If the performance result is worth it I am In. How can i keep this thing cool, ideally without changing the CPU cooler ? Any help greatly appreciated !
