I'm wondering if you happen to know if those 140mm Corsair AF/SP series fans mounted on the outside front chassis (being the shape of those fans is rounded) can be accomplished without modding the front panel?  I don't want to purchase them to then find out either.biggrin.gif

 

Practically every case thread I've ever read there's some temporary diversion somewhere.  Please don't fret.wink.gif

I don't think so, I had no luck, and from what i've read, neither has anyone else frown.gif

That's a very nice powerful car, too bad the brand is gone.

Pontiac is gone, but my car is actually a Holden with a Pontiac badge on it. Same as the 04-06 GTO, PPV, new Chevelle & upcoming Chevy SS. thumb.gif

The G8 is awesome. I really want a new CTSv wagon but I need to find a good network security job first.

Backplate for the socket, mobo rear I/O or CPU cooler?

 

I guess you have no choice but to wait and I look forward to seeing your eventual build and it better be good.tongue.gif

Hey guys,
I'm excited to say that my HAF XB and all my parts are on order for my first build! I'll be sure to get some photos up of the build, and I have some painting planned out for this spring when it warms up and I can paint outside.

I do have one or two questions though regarding cooling and fans. In Post 342 - Nsango mentioned that his Bitfenix Hydra Pro fan controller couldn't be installed properly as only one side could be attached. Has anyone come up with any solution for this? I was really hoping to have this controller installed.

Also with respect to the top 200/230mm fan, I've seen some people having installed bitfenix spectre (pro) fans, while others say its only the CM brand fans that fit. Do we have a list of fans that have the same compatible mount pattern?

And how does the top fan fit with a 120mm radiator in push/pull set up on the back? Specifically I have the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro.

Thanks so much guys!

All my gear came today biggrin.gif




Now its time to start planing etc tongue.gif

Will keep you updated ^^

Edit:


I can confirm that the 140mm fans wont fit as is.. but the trimming took 2 min tops!!

1: get the front off..
2: decide how many of the plastic things to cut off
3: with our good friend Stanley, do a straight as possible line on the fins I want gone (not much pressure is needed) and then just brake them off with your hands or a pair of pliers

Trimming done!!

Yeah I had to trim my Enermax UCTB14's to fit in there, not hard and didn't do any damage to the fan.
