Case and other cool stuff has been ordered ! The shop is on holiday until the 20th of August so will have to wait a bit (got free shipping for compensation so I can't complain).
But then I have to do some exams so I probably won't be able to build it until after the 7th of September mad.gif

Do you guys think that a 140x160mm fan would work well with a rad in this case? Is there enough depth in front and in back of the rad? I'm thinking of using some thermalright TY-140s.

Also, do those casters come with the case? I hope so I love the casters on my HAF932. Thats a great feature on a big case.

casters do come with it. 140 x 160? Have to check that.
The front opening is only 152mm and rear hole will at max fit a 140 x 140. but inside the case on the back of the Rad yes it will fit.. Is that a good rad fan.. has an odd shape to it.. doesnt look like it would mate well to a rad

Yeah, the thermalright TY-140 is supposed to be one of the better 140mm fans on the market.

Thanks for the info, btw.

Apparently Ncix has a bunch of Cougar Turbines on sale for $14 for two and has some backordered for $6 a pop but I'm pretty sure those are sleeve bearing fans. Still tempting.

Right now I'm thinking about ditching the red sickleflow fans (too dim) and going all green. Any opinions on that?

sweet build man! thumb.gif

Also, has anyone put a 140mm rad with 15mm fan spacing on top like the alphacool UT60 420?
Edit: It seems like the fan spacing on the top is 15mm, at least on the original revision. thumb.gif

420mm top and bottom, both have 15mm spacing my rads were ek

I have a spare that I can test. The Ty-140 has 120mm fan hole mountings, so it should work. The top and bottom can squeeze in 230x200mm fans so a 140x160mm should be fit in most places, even in the drive bays (the 140mm part).
