I had the same problem when I looked at putting my PA 120.2 inside the case. I imagine a H100 + fans is about the same thickness.

I will be replacing all fans soon. Can I get any recommendations for some fans for a 500r + H100 setup?

I would like it to stay quiet when not gaming and cool while doings so. I did a little bit of research and the two fans that fit the need are:

Cooler Master Turbine Master MACH0.8
Cooler Master Blade Master 120mm

If the Turibine Masters are insufficient to cool 2500K at 4.6GHz do you think 4 of them in push/pull would do?

I want to ask you about your fan on H100
Is that "Push" position?
So you push the hot air and dust into the case?

sorry for the late reply sir.... I just place the 2 fans on top sucking all the air into my case.

any suggestion?

Your rigs is nice sir! But for friendly advise, don't use to much color on your rigs. If you like the red/black , blue/black or orange/black theme just do it in 2 colors. Start to follow what your motherboard's color. In that case your rigs may look awesome and doesn't look like a christmas tree or a fruit salad.

In my case the "red sideline" of my videocard is the only red color that sucks my eyes. I'm eyeing for this aftermarket Gelid Icy vision VGA cooler. Reviews shows quite improvement on the cooling process.

I will be uploading new pictures of my system soon. Did some updates: white cable extensions/cablemanagement - NZXT fancontroller - LED lighting - more fans.

All I need is a sidepanel with window (don't want to screw this panel up myself). Come on Corsair!

I feel ya. I sorta want a window too. I do kinda like looking through the mesh though. Gives it kind of a SciFi feel.

Hi TechCrazy
I don't use PWM fan because there's no 140mm pwm fan
So i use just 3 pin for 140mm fan on my rad
I think the color depend on your favorite color scheme for your case
If i were you i will choose the black one
I can't find that type in my country
Its color was more neutral with other color
