A new fan controller will be installed and possibly replace the top 200mm fan as it's a waste as the top chassis opening is too small for it to be 100% effective in my view.
imo most 200mm fans are a waste. 120mm fans can put out more cfm, more static pressure and usually as quiet as one ( depending on which one you get).
might i recommend a aquaero5. they are awesome !~
Over $200.00 for a fan controller - OUCH!
Being that I don't overclock, if the top chassis opening were about the same as the fan blades I would leave it alone. I'm not going to mod because of that fan scenario as it's not worth it all around, so I'll place two 140mm (maybe 120's) fans up there which will work nicely.
I'm thinking of maybe replacing the front 120's with Enermax Cluster 120mm fans but thinking how the white fan frame will look behind the front mesh of this particular case. I know white and black goes well but haven't seen this yet with a Storm Trooper case and I know that the Storm Stryker has white framed fans but the rest of that case is white.
