I have one of the bottom corners zip tied to the case, the fan could stay inplace with out the zip. It's a scythe slim 120mm fan. Not the best preforming fan, but it sure beats that 80mm fan

Will you use a dust filter ? I don't know how if there is one on this case.

I would say 15mm because the 80mm stock fan is 15mm thick but maybe more, I'd like to know too. (You can always cut the side panel, it's not going to be pretty but it will fit anything).

Its the same amount of space as the 8mm fan. Same thickness

The scythe 120mm fan is a little thinner than the 80mm fan-mount setup that Comes with the case.

I have a filter but I need longer screws. It goes filter-fan-case-radiator. I'll pick some up soon

Hey man,

I want to do the same thing, but I want to use the H70 instead of the Kuhler 620. Do you know if the H70 tubes are long enough?

And also, the front panel does not fit anymore or you just don't want to put it back?

I hate the front panel plus it restricts the case of air imo.

Oh, I see... and what about the corsair CL solutions? Have you tried any? Are the tubes long enough?
