I did not take the top panel off the case. Some people did it that way so if you think that would make it easy. You can line the fans up an use them as template (or guide). Use the front fan mounting holes and start from there. Drilling middle and rear fan holes. The fans on mine sit butted close to each other with no space between the Template should make easy. If you need room for your fittings the rear exhaust fan can be moved down. I put my exhaust fan as far down it could go resting on the led light in the pci slot area. Drill two holes for the bottom of exhaust fan.Tighten the top screws on fan and drilling with the fan mounted.

I just did that, like 5 mins back. The guy was as astonished as I was that it hadn't reached me as yet. And then he said that there were two options:

1) Either the shipping guy didn't update the tracking no.,
2) Or it hasn't been shipped and which he'd try to ship it out today.

And I'm thinking that if I wouldn't have phoned them, then I may have never gotten my case. I still haven't, but I'm just saying upon the fact of 'realization'.

He said that he'll let me know either of the two options. Now all I can do is wait, just like I have been since the last 12 days.

Although Xnine is related to NZXT, but according to him, as he's not in that dept, he pretty much can't do anything about it. He just referred me an email which surprising worked at first, but after that, no more replies.

Set the template so its front fan lines up with the Switch's front fan's 4 mounting holes, then drill the 8 new holes, 4 each, for the center and rear fans.

That will be sure to bring the fittings as far forward as possible for clearance around the I/O box.

When you're done, the rear fan hole set should be 10mm farther forward than the originals.

Once you're done, you'll need to make a couple of additional slots for the rad's top port plugs so the rad sits flush to the top panel.

I mounted my radiator with Phobia Shroud & Decoupling 140mm (7mm thickness) so I did not need to make any extra slots to make Radiator sit flush.

I've used those before, and they really do a super job.

How's your clearance between the top edge of the mobo and the underside fans, or did I miss seeing it somewhere and you're running a 45mm thick rad?

As I recall, Agent Kenshin has the UT60 420, and had some pics of having to slot for the top side port plugs, although I looked again and could not find them.

Adit:

Ahhh, looked at your pics and you're not running fans on the underside of the top rad.

Are you pushing down from the top, or are the top fans "pull".

UT 60. Using NZXT FX 140LB 3speed fans pulling hot air out. Have bottom radiator with decoulpers on both sides with NZXT FX 120LB 3 speed fans push and pull as intake. The decouplers are nice because you can use o-rings on your screws when putting every thing together to hold things in place. Clearance is fine with out push fans I have two 8 pins on my motherboard so I would have to cut the housing of a fan for clearance if I wanted push fans. The 3 speed fans are 98.3 cfm & 2.2 mm-H2O on high and you can feel lots of air out the top so I am fine with pull for now. I did move rear exhaust fan down as far as I could so I had clearance for my bitspower compressions
