And LIKELY: Bottom Rad: 240 (Again TBD) - with 2x120 Red AeroCool on inside, and 2x Black AeroCool on outside ;-)
I've used the AeroCool fans exclusively so far for any aftermarket replacements, and I couldn't be happier with their sound or their looks thumb.gif

There are some issues with this setup... you will have to mod the case to put dual 140mm fans on the top (outside the case) due to the carry handle. I believe that one 140mm fan with fit towards the back on top but I cannot remember. My 140mm rad on top is thicker than the fan so I'm pretty sure that it will work BUT i could be wrong. Also if you want two fans on the outside of the case on the bottom, you will have to get taller case feet for the fans to fit under the case.

For the top radiator/fan combo you need to say between 57 and 56mm thick or you will probably hit the mobo. GTS Stealth Rad 31.3mm + Aerocool fan 25mm = 56.3mm thick. My setup is VERY VERY close to my board.

I was planning on keeping the fans all on the inside of the case - just on both sides of the rad. I will have to measure this out on top tonight, but it shouldn't be an issue for the bottom. If I can swing it, I won't have to mod the case. If not, I would be ok with doing the top 280 rad with only 2 fans, and just doing the bottom 240 in push/pull. I am already planning on using only one HDD bay from now on, so it shouldn't be a problem on the bottom.

Let's be best friends - since we're twins anyway. Pick you up at 8 for dinner and a movie? tongue.gif

Serious question then - I am about to order my fans now... have you measure it out? I am about to open my case and take a look, but I would like to know what you decided to do with the top 280. You think push/pull with all fans on the inside of the case for the 280 will fit? Just thought I'd poll you for your thoughts - As I said, taking apart my case now to install my newly arrived cable extensions ^_^ Shall return later.

With a rough measurement while the computer was running (i swear i stuck my hand in the 200mm like 3 times) I got 2.5". Thats about 62mm so Im rounding up to 65mm since my measurement was probably short.

EX280 height: 36mm
That leaves 29mm to play with.
Yate Loon medium speed (my fan of choice) height: 25mm
Annddd...not enough room for push pull inside the case. Now I'm thinking the EX series might be a bad choice for the top rad. Because of its slim size, it has a high FPI so it needs a ton of cfm's to work well. Looks like we'll either have to go with push/pull inside/outside with an ex240, go with the ex280 with just a pull setup, or go with an ex280 push/pull inside/outside by modding the case.

Well, I wired up all my LEDs today. It was such a pain to solder, I'm not very good at it and it took forever. I started yesterday and finished today.

I'm not going to wire it into the case tonight because I have a few parts on the way and I want to do it all at once. My wife's PSU is going so I'm giving her my Corsair 600W and I ordered a 850ZX for my system. I also have a fan controller (NZXT Mix) on the way. So hopefully I'll get it all together before the weekend.

Anyway, the mod was inspired by justinwebb. He did it in red, I have a blue thing going on in my trooper...

Oh, Cooler Master sent my side panel to the wrong address so hopefully they can get that turned around this week and I'll get it before the weekend too.
