Thanks for the answers.

I think that CM has made a big mistake with the top fan.
Just 1 or 2cm more in height would be enough to fit his top fans with his coolers.

I have to think what to do.

Not the EVO 212 and top fan won't fit.

But with the vented top and my 212, I never had heat issues. 2x 140mm low speed BeQuiet fans in front and the EVO 212 w/ 1 fan, my system ran ~30 at idle and ~60 at load with 3770K @ 4.2.

Slim 200mm fans do next to nothing anyways. Read any fan review, not the box they come in and you'll see that the slim 200's don't have enough rpm or fan blade pitch to move much air at all. I bought a 200mm fan from Cooler Master and saw no real change in temps whatsoever with it blowing in or pulling air out.

What I would love to be able to do is to hang a 120mm fan over my GPU's... of course the lid couldn't fit 4x120 mm as standard... but... (holds up dremel and grins evilly) devil.gif

Either that or get that funky fan hanger that someone in this thread had... (goes searching)

I find this issue quite inconsequential. Have a rear 120mm fan and front 2x 140mm/120mm and call it a day. That top fan won't help you reduce temps much, if at all.

You will also have to jerryrig it to get it to stay. For reason CM thought it would be awesome to use non-standard sized 200mm mounting holes in its case.

The CM Rep has stated since they were the first to bring 200mm fans to the market, as far as they are concerned, they should be considered the standard that everyone else isn't following. I believe that discussion is buried somewhere here in this thread.

I see all of these kick ass xb on here. What monitors do some of you guys use. I have an i5 3570k and only one evga gtx 660 but I am getting another one. I know I need to get 120 hz as I am going to stay with 1080 simply for prices I can't afford 2560x1440. I have been looking at the BENQ xl2420t and a 27" asus with about the same specs and price

I have an Asus PA248Q, which is a 24 inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1920x1200. If you're sticking with 1080, I would suggest staying away from 27 inch panels as their less dense pixel pitch starts to look crappy (depending on how far you sit from it of course). 27 inch panels really look best with a 1440 resolution. The more dense pixel pitch of a 24 inch screen at 1080 will look much more crisp sitting right in front of you, compared to a 27 incher with the same rez.

A great monitor for the price:

Well fellow Minnesotan Look at Micro Center they have 1440P displays for around $240.00 (open box), That's how I got mine and its an awesome investment.
