I should have been more clear. I don't want a 140 in the place of the two 80s.

I was thinking that a 140 could be placed on one of the side panels. You could probably even fit the building 140 in place of the rear 120 without adding more case height.

Shippings a total ripoff though, first and last time I buy from them.

I know I kind of asked this before, but just to be certain. I have on order 2x 140mm fans which will be on the inside of the case. Im also getting a good price on the ASUS GTX 680. However, this is a darn long card at 11.8". Out of curiosity, would anyone be so kind to answer (1.) Obviously will it fit comfortably (2.) And if so, how much space would there be between the farthest end of the card and the 140x25mm fan. nerdsmiley.png

Justa FYI, the reason why I cant check it myself is my case is packed up for now while Im still parting.

Clearances are very tight when you install front fans inside the case with a big video card. My server/workstation is configured similarly with a Quadro K5000 adapter, which is 10.5" long. Unfortunately, the single 6-pin PCIE power connector plugs into the end of the card instead of on top, making fan clearance even tighter. The power cables are just a millimeter away from the fan frame, so I tied them down near the bottom of the motherboard tray to insure those cables do not interfere with the fan!



Your video card is even longer, but I think the power connectors are on top, so I would estimate your card will also have just a millimeter of clearance at best; at least you won't have the same power cable clearance issue with the fan frame, but you still may find yourself placing the fans outside the case...
