Cool! Thank you for all of your help. You guys will probably see more of me on this thread once I start building next week!

Thanks agian

You can mount a single 120mm rad on the rear exhaust and a duel 120mm rad (aka a 240 rad) or if you're crafty, a tripple 120mm rad (aka 360 rad) up top.

I have a custom loop with a 240 on bottom in a pull config (intake) and a 240 up top in push (exhaust) works great.

I have a nice AF 140 quiet at the bottom and it works out fine but it does depend on the psu, how long it is, how you mount it, modular or not and what you do with the HDD cages as to what you ca do with the bottom so I would chose that last, after everthing else so you wil know what is possible as far as fitIntel(R) IPP JPEG encoder 7.0.1041 - Jul 19 2011; goes.

I have a modular PSU. It is a 650w Corsair. I am also a little confused about where the fans plug into. I know that there are plugs in the mobo, but are there enough to supply power to all of the fans?

you can get some molex adapters and run the cans strait off the power supply.

Cool. I know that I have to use a 120mm for the cooler and exhaust, but can I use 140mm for the rest, or should I stick with 120mm allthe way around?

I am using 140 in the front and 120 on the rads. 140mm fans will be quieter and move more air.

So, how does this sound: 2 x 140mm in the front, 2 x 120mm behind the HDD bracket, 1 x 140mm on the bottom, 1 x 140mm on top and 2 x 120mm for rear exhaust. Does that make sense?

Can also buy a fan controller. Power that with one molex, and it controls 5 fans (depending on the wattage per channel you can use a y splitter to split each channel into 2 fans.)

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the front panel intake can only be 2x120mm without modding. And you won't be able to do 2x120mm on the rear exhaust (there's only one spot, unless that's where you're putting your radiator in push/pull). Could change that to 2x140mm on the top for exhaust.

2x120mm front intake
2x120mm front HDD cage
1x140mm intake front bottom
2x120mm rear exhaust (on radiator)
2x140mm top exhaust.

I believe, unless you do a mod, that the case will only support one 140mm on the front if I'm not mistaken.
