Corsair 500R & 212 Evo Tags: Power Supplies Cooling Cases Corsair Evo Components Last response: November 24, 2012 12:28 AM in Components Share hm November 23, 2012 10:52:18 PM I have a 500R on the way and I'm looking at the 212 Evo cooler. Does anyone know if this cooler will fit in the case. I'm concerned that the case's side mounted fan will prevent the cooler from fitting.

It gives you clearance for big coolers on the fan side and space for cable management on the other side. I'm running two 140mm fans on the side on my 400R and there is more than enough space for my 212+ hm November 24, 2012 12:28:33 AM Z1NONLY said:It's the "flare" on the side(s) that gives you the extra space.

I was going to get the 400R but then the white 500R came up. Didn't want white but liked the case so it's now on the way along with everything else but the CPU. The most costly so put it off til last. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumWhich Case???
