I'm scared of moving those units because it feels like they are cemented into place.

The other thing is that the wiring was wrong, they put fan 1 on fan 3 and vice versa. Not a big deal, I'll switch it when I get home tonight. The RGB is gorgeous through the glass :)

Otherwise I like the case a lot. It's very pretty and I get great airflow (though I might be a bad judge because my last case is 7 years old and had only one working fan).

I'm surprised there are no reviews of this case yet. One other thing I can't figure out... the hard drive enclosures have these rubber / metal pins that stick into the drive to hold them in place... a couple of them fell out & I couldn't figure out how to put them back in. Again, I haven't built in a long time so obviously things changed in regards to hard drive enclosures... maybe this is normal and I'm just being ignorant.

Hi I just swapped my rig from a nzxt elite to this... so I thought I'd give you some of my experiences...

Yes the commander pro and fan hub are in the front, to move them I just pushed a flat headed screw driver up through the bottom vents and pried up the double sided tape holding it down, the fan hub is held down with a full size strip of tape I just pushed a pry tool under it and with a little pressure... POP!


The pins and rubbers are fairly simple too, just slide the rubber through the opening bu folding it then push the pin in

Yeah, my exact thoughts! They should have just left the commander pro and node alone. That preinstalled placement is pretty bad in my opinion.

Yeah the inside of my case looks quite messy now since I can only route the case fan cables to the front. I can’t even add a rear mounted fan because there are no rgb extension cables for the ll and ml rgb fans. I’ll definitely try the flat headed screw driver to pop it out to relocate to the back!

Does Corsair not have their own vertical GPU brackets and cable? I have a 1080 Asus strix and I'm not sure where to purchase the vertical GPU stuff for the 500d se

Get the TT 200mm riser cable. Any brand at 200mm really but TT's are common and usually on sale, it's just the right length to plug into the top pci slot on your board.

It's great looking case but my only grievance with is is that it's sold with LL fans and Commander Pro.
Would love to see the case without the fans and commander pro.
Alternatively, option with commander pro and ML fans would be interesting.
**already own bunch of ML120 and 140s and would hate to buy the SE case just to throw LL fans away**

After 7 years of using a 650D, I finally upgraded to the 500D SE. Got it in today, and I gotta say, it is FREAKIN GORGEOUS! Im in the process of transplanting my PC into it now.
I do agree with what some other people were saying. I'd really like to have seen the added RGB Corsair logo on the PSU shroud like the one they added to the 570x Mirror Black. Not sure why they didn't think to include that. I think it was smart on their part to ditch the curved glass panel on front. More cost-effective, and instead the curve comes from the really thick and sleek-looking door handles.
I just wish that they would have passed on a little of that savings in design change onto their customers! Maybe by including a rear exhaust LL120 just to complete the package and make the case feel like its completely ready to go right out of the box. Ive never spent this much money on a case before, Im on a fairly tight budget (it was difficult to make this purchase happen)and now I have to go spend another $30+ just to pick up a matching exhaust fan! Ack! Lol.

Still, the case is stunning! Im enjoying the build so far. After using an Obsidian series case for so many years, this one really felt like the right choice of upgrade for me..

Well here in Finland there is not even one single piece in stores or webstores. I got one ordered couple weeks ago and store stated that they are going to get it this week but no it looks like it is going to take a lot longer now because they removed the estimated delivery time.. Sucks.

Need help please.
I just finished with my built and somehow the left side panel won't close
I tried reducing the bundling of my cables so that they don't get too bulky but still no dice.
Also tried restoring commander pro back to the psu area (previously I attach them to the ssd mounting). Same.
The magnet on both doorworks fine, and the closing mechanism also works fine when I started building.

I had issue to begin with, but fixed it by zip tie'ing my 8pin cpu to the case. Can you show me some images of the back, and also some side images. ?
