Keep in mind the TY-140 are 140mm fans with 120mm mounts so I thought they would be perfect for top of the case but I was wrong.

You can clearly see the mounts are already close to each other so having 120mm fans simultaneously will work just fine. Two 140mm fans though? Not possible.

You may be able to use those small screw holes but I don't have any screws that small and not utilizing the rubber mounts would be kind of silly.

Two 120mm fans will fit fine but you can tell by just observing that two 140mm from this picture will be stretching it...

It honestly would be. The 200mm is about a couple mm from touching one of the fan clips on the D14. Like I said though, tight but perfect fit.

Couldn't that be because the TY-140 is a bit bigger than standard 140mm fans?

TY-140 Dimensions: L160mm x H140mm x W26.5mm'
NF-P14 Dimensions: 140x140x25 mm
N.B PK Dimensions: 140x140x25mm

It's possible. When I'll receive my SSD, I'll try and experiment with my NF-P14.

I don't see how it will work out though because the rubber mounts were clearly designed for 120mm fans. (speaking for standard 140mm fans with 140mm mounts)

With the 500R will a Hyper 212+ fit or will I need to remove the side fan? If I remove the side fan, could I use it as a top exhaust fan?

Another thing that crossed my mind...

I did use the H140mm end on my TY-140, not the length end so I am almost positive that I'll have the same dilemma with the NF-P14. You can however use a single fan.

It will fit, the Hyper 212+ isn't that big.

That's great to hear, thank you very much for replying. Please have a look at my topic I posted regarding additional case fans for the 400R/500R.

its only 1 in longer but the screws are in the same place. will this affect the sata ports. also any pics of it with eatx

A E-ATX Motherboard WILL fit inside the 500R and 400R but cut it very close, so you will get very close to the rubber grommets, pretty much along the same lines as people have done with the 650D. It will fit fine but very close. Your sata ports will be fine. I've seen people use boards like the Asus Maximus IV Extreme inside with no problems. And I'm almost certain that Corsair George answered this question earlier in this thread. So to sum it up yes E-ATX will fit inside this case.

EDIT: Here's an attached photo of an E-ATX board inside the 500R.
