I'm not using 140mm fans. The adapter works both ways. The idea was to use a 140.3 with the case's 120mm fan spacing.

They're really designed to adapt 120mm fans to a radiator, not to adapt a 420 radiator to a 360 mount.
Thank you very much for the quick reply. While looking around the forums today I saw that you are preparing a large single wide case, any idea on when that will be added to your main web page and available for order?

(NOTE: not my build, and i got the idea from him and have since used it and it works great... build is here
Thanks for your helpful suggestions, I'll probably either stick to rx360's or go with either the new single wide tower or a pedestal though.
