And for god's sake, don't add fan mounts in the side panel of a case like this
While I do see your point of view, I don't think it would be a good move to attempt to force a new standard of fans in a case like this. It's not exactly like the water cooling community are falling over themselves to jump on the 200mm bandwagon
It's a bit funny btw, that on one side you're really pushing the 200mm fans, and on the other you're proclaiming the move to "small, cool and silent"
oh, absolutely no side panel fans
i absolutely hate side panel fans
i was referring to the application of the acoustic foam blocks on the top of the case where you'd normally mount the rads/fans. I think they can design it in such way that the beauty can be maintained while allowing for larger fans. (much like the way fractal midi handled it.)
as for smaller cooler and silent
i suppose smaller is the wrong word to use. internal volume might not decrease, in fact it might even increase due to the additional width. i was referring more in terms of height and length. in providing additional width to accommodate 200mm fans, you are also providing more width for behind the mobo tray for better cable management or "other"purposes such as HDD mounts like how the RV03 has used that space. I've also seen liquid cooling hoses routed behind the mobo tray for a more unique look.
