that's what I'm thinking...I need to see if they'll all fit that way, since the Pro 120mm is actually thinner than I thought, so it may fit at the back. If not, I may try and get both on the bottom, with the nozzle part's facing toward the windowed side, if that makes sense. Gotta check for room behind my AX1200 though haha. I'm also up for trying to mount either the 120 or 140 in place of the bottom HDD cage, which I'll remove. I'd try and mount vertically where you can put the fans in the front. I may need to buy and teach myself to use a dremel as well haha thumb.giftongue.gif

That will be hard, just eyeballing it next to me I think the 140 might be too big to fit inside the back with a fat 360 on top.

Well, my parents were nice enough to bring it down on my birthday weekend to college (it was my bday gift, along with a Dell U2312HM) and I thought the finish was great. I really don't mind the plastic parts, as I have a HAF, which is LITTERED with plastic on the front, etc...
Overall, I really did like the finish when I saw it. I've alway wanted a white case, and I really love it. I'll be able to answer more in depth when I get home, or you can PM me with specifics, but from my one look at it so far, it was great. Aside from the finish, I definitely think the interior is amazing. It's by far one of the highest quality interiors I've worked in or seen. The HDD cages are awesome, definitely my favorite part so far.

You may be able to mount both the 120 and 140 on the fan swivel mounts depending on your GPU length and rad/fan thickness. tongue.gif

For ultimate beastliness you should put an extra 240 rad in the bottom, and that 120 in the front. FOUR radiators! Haha, maybe some day I will have 4 rads in this case.

I was thinking that, but I'd need a place to mount my FrozenQ tube res...

Mounting the fan on the fan swivel mounts? Lol, I wonder what the maximum amount of rads is, haha.
