Alright, guess I'll go with that config as well then since we both use the same case after all.
However, what fans do you use now as your top twin 200mm and rear back 140mm ones? I'm still at a loss what 200mm's I should get, and for the rear exhaust I consider the Thermalright TY-140.

I guess that's another physical modification I'll have the tech guy do...

I thought you had an intake fan in your 5.25" bay. However, you didn't list it up now, so I guess there isn't one after all. The owner of DEMCiflex said in this video's info (http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=h7xcOWgWEzc) that the HAF-X is rather porous in front, so it'd make sense that a lot of the intake air goes out there as well, and not only out the rear exhaust.

@ CeeFour Thank you

@ Drakhor : Hello again !
For the fans I use for the second top intake and rear exhaust are the CM 200mm MegaFlow ( ordered a red led one and put it in the side panel while installing the stock one coming from the side panel to the top, I didn't wait light up there ) and the stock CM 140mm for now ( waiting to see if I need one in this place AFTER I cut the rear grill ). And yeah, the TY-140 would definitely be one of my choices as per Ehume informations

For the hot swap SATA PCB, it's really really easy to do, you got two screws on each side of the 5.25" bays to remove then pull out the plate, it takes 5 minutes top.

And no I never had a fan in the 5.25" bay, I was willing to try but totally forgot about that I have two Noctuas NF-S12B FLX lying around though ... Hehe

+ rep for the video on filters btw, great find

You think you can keep us updated on the life span of your top intake fans? The cooler master 200mm fans are sleeve bearing fans so their life expectancy reduces by a lot when mounted in a horizontal position. You should get the antec big boy 200mm fans which are ball bearings and have similar specs to the stock CM fans. You have to drill new holes in the fan since they dont match up with the haf x holes

Hrmmm....
tbh I'd rather drop the 15€ on the Megaflows than having to be drilling, cutting, measuring, etc.

True.. that amount of money for a fan that has a varied life expectancy when mounted horizontally isnt bad now that i think of it.

@ Butter and Dgio21 : Yup, that's what I'll do when one of my fan will start making noise, replace it, it's not that expensive But I'll check the life span anyway.

now some pictures, not of the system, but of what's going on on the side :

I like the colors...fairly subdued and elegant...It should look really nice. I have to admit I'm kind of jealous of your skills. I tried my hand at sleeving my cables, but didn't have the patience. After seeing what some of you folks here have done, I am tempted to try again.
