I'm also transferring my OCZ/Firepower ModXStream 700w PSU to the case. Is anyone familiar with this PSU cable length? I'm not sure the cables will be long enough.
psu cable extensions are rather cheap. You can even get them in colored single sleeves for $7-12 each if your cables are short.

Bitfenix and silverstone are nice if shopping at amazon.

There are a ton of brands at www.performance-pcs.com too.

My custom R5 demci filter came in finally.



Its a shame fractal doesnt offer any kind of optional moduvents with filters.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00C249QNE/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1431688494&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SY200_QL40&keywords=high+static+pressure+120mm+fan&dpPl=1&dpID=51AHPQe6iBL&ref=plSrch

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007V9IRB2/ref=mp_s_a_1_46?qid=1431689357&sr=8-46&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70&keywords=high+static+pressure+120mm+fan&dpPl=1&dpID=41ND-DhMv0L&ref=plSrch

The corsair sp120 high performance will move more air. They are higher rpm than the swiftech helix. They are also louder but you can slow them down if they are too loud.

I prefer ap15s (amazon is out) or ap14s due to how much pressure they have at lower quiet rpms. Scythe GentleTyphoon D1225C12B4AP-14 120mm 1450 rpm Silent Case Fan https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001Q6X0S6/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_5JDvvb14F0V91

The sp120s are the stronger fan even against the ap-14 but at the cost of noise again.
