H500 Case Modification

Recommended Posts

I just got the H500 case and noticed the openings for the 200mm fans are restricted.You loose about 50% cooling from those 200mm fans. The case is made for 3 120 fans without any opening loss..I will open up the full 200mm openings by cutting away the case material...Since I will place my 240 liquid cooler at the top of the case I don’t require the front for any other fans. Also I will shorten the PS shroud just enough to hide the PS. I also removed the HDD tray since I use m.2 drives , and might cut another 140mm fan hole in that location to help cool the GPU card. Cooler Master should modify the case so by default the case is optimized for the 200mm fans, and a separate plate can be fitted for use of the 3 120 fans or Liquid cooler. Thanks....I would like your opinions...The PCGUY...

I have this case and instead, i just mounted the 2x 200mm fan inside the case, rather than outside. Did notice an improvement in airflow. Im now panning on doing the same thing you did. Can you tell what were your temps before doing the mod?
