Yeah, that was me. No response yet from the Corsair website.

I noticed the panels are swappable, which is cool. That might be the only benefit of slide panels. tongue.gif

These are both excellent fans that move tons of air and are very quiet. With two 120's one will be blocked halfway by the front of the case. There are pics in the 650D thread somewhere...can't find it atm. frown.gif I would seriously consider one of the above 200mm fans. You will achieve much better airflow which is needed for this case. thumb.gif

I was doing some measurements just by hand with an extra 120mm fan I had laying around, your right there would be airflow restriction due to the way the front of the case is made (sounded like a good idea after a few beers). I went and looked at some dremel's today at the pawn shop and I'll probably grab one of those and cut out the front grill and throw in a Spectre Pro white LED fan. I saw a cool mod someone did in the 650D thread which I think I'm gonna steal tongue.gif

I saw someone here on OCN that put a 200mm RAD in the front of their 650D but I can't remember who it was and having trouble trying to find their build again. Looked like it required some modding, not 100% sure though.

you can place a 200mm in front no problem. then place a 240mm rad and some slim 120's so that they don't your ram

I was planning at a minimum a 240 Rad in the roof and some NF-F12's in pull. I'm under the impression that as long as the RAD is <50mm thick it'll be okay to fit it with fan's and not hit the mobo and ram. Although I'm not against a 280 RAD in the roof either just don't know any good 140mm fans to have pull heat off it.

If I decide to water cool the gpu I'll grab a 200 rad for the front also

I'd head over to the OCN Water Cooling Club for more info about the rads and such....I believe that's were the 650D build you're looking for has been posted. thumb.gif

EDIT: Here's what I found after a quick thread search. Not the build I was thinking off but should give you an idea of what you're in for.
