im still trying to think what mod I can do with my 400R. Im thinking of acrylic clear side panel first then powder coat outside the case.

Passive will not be enough first of all. Yes a 120 will also fit up top. You just have to be careful what thickness rad you want to put. Anything above 400mm won't fit I think.

She runs pretty well. I can play BF3 with no problems. I play Men Of War: Assault Squad and Total War: Empire in their fullest settings and it runs great! I haven't had any issues in terms of over heating. I think Highest was 59c, some where around there @ 100% load. I have the GPU fan running at 80%, Kind of loud but it honestly doesn't bother me. The H100 is at its full setting as well. Been a bit broke so I haven't had the chance of replacing the stock fans on the H100 or the stock fan at the rear of the rig. I plan on sleeving everything and cleaning it up a little bit more. I really like the digital fan controllers so maybe one day I'll get me one.

i would have to agree (a high 4 at that). the only thing i have found that i dont care for is the thin/cheap drive trays. they are so thin they flex and when you put SSDs in them they look empty. i am going to use aftermarket ssd adapters and try to mount them differently
