Thanks for the reply.

I was looking at pictures of the case, is it possible to mount fans on the other side of the hard drive cage?

Lovely! It might have to wait a bit but I'll have to grab some fans for that side of the cage once I order the case.

Three front intakes (with the use of an adapter for three of the 5.25" bays), two on the other side of the cage, front top intake, side intake. Positive pressure, oh my <3

(10 years of pc building, this case has everything I've wanted or needed, and leaves nothing for me personally to be desired, thus my masterpiece epic puzzle is complete).
Even my wife, who doesnt know a processor from a stick of ram, thinks its the best looking computer case shes seen.
I ******* love this case. Carry on...

That's exactly what my wife said, and exactly what I thought (wording optional).

I'm not sure if I have my fans positions right for optimum airflow. I have the 2 stock 120mm intake fans in the front, stock 120mm fan exhaust at the back and I have 2 BitFenix 140mm intake fans on the side and 2 more of these 140mm fans exhausting at the top. If I have done it right, which position should my heatsink fan go?

Thanks.

I have the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO. Am I right in thinking I want the heatsink fan pointing towards the front of the case?
