Corsair Carbide 500R review -
So yeah, the 200 mm spinner is already included (on the side panel), along with a pair of 120 mm ones on the front. A 120mm fan is placed at the back as well.
The backside itself reveals a thing or two as well. Next to the top left rear IO we spot a 120mm fan. All fans in this chassis can be PWM fan controlled, the good news is that a fan controller is included.
Next to the 8 card slots we see no less than four grommet holes, these could be used for some sort of external liquid cooling or alternatively you can lead out USB 3.0 front panel cables that need to be connected to the rear IO.
Corsair made changes and you can use the standard internal USB 3.0 connector as designed and form factored by Intel on the motherboard as well. So both options will work.
On top we see a huge mesh. Good for ventilation and exhausting hot air, the top mesh can be used for a watercooling radiator as there is room for a full 240mm one here. Obviously you can go nuts with other fans here as well. A dual 120mm radiator would be a breeze to install for sure.
At the front side at the top we see the power on switch and LED (white). Connectors wise you'll have plenty of them including USB 3.0 x2, MIC/Headphones, a Firewire connector.
To the right we see a reset switch but also an on/off switch for lights inside the chassis (the fans glow in white, and you can turn their LEDs off by pressing a button located on the top part of the front panel).
To your far right there is tiny switch, it's actually the fan controller which allows for three modes silent/normal/performance and thus changes fan RPM. Below it all this you'll spot the 5.25" drive bays, (x4) 5.25.
