  7. Installation Experience and Conclusion

Oh yes!! Remember what I said about 500R’s packaging?

The Styrofoam is no different from 500R’s fate, although looking at the condition of the case itself it was obvious that its been tested by few people before me. Corsair REALLY needs to use thicker Styrofoam.

So the only notable difference in paper spec goes, its the 200mm side panel fan on the 500R, but there’s no fan on 400R’s left sidepanel. Moving on…
