You're talking about putting it on the side where there is the window panel option?

Hey Caleal, did you use something like this to get all 9 fans PWM controlled? My MB has two 4-pin connectors -- one CPU and one chassis (I imagine that's pretty standard):

No, under the drive bays at the front of the tower. The fans can fit two 120mm's tall with no problem, and because the side panels are beveled, they can also fit width-wise.

hmm very weird lol I would honestly just take a 200mm rad and 200mm fan and stick it up there, take your drive bays and put them between the rad and the power supply. Check this out - http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6010/5885794539_c0c6fd8e12_b.jpg

You could raise the res and put the drive bays under it.

That's a great install! But the 200mm fans are loud and always at one speed. I'd like it to be silent when stresses are low and fan controllers are lame. Bahumbug.

I'll draw a diagram to make sure we're on the same page with my weird design.

The 5 way splitter wasn't available when I built mine, so I used a combination of the 3 way splitters and a custom splitter box I made for the side panel radiator fans.

I've measured and tested it all out, the 4x120mm fans cooling a 200 rad can work without any cutting (if you don't want to cool with a 200mm fan).
