You'd definitely have to put the one set of 120's within the front bezel for that to have a chance at fitting.

Looks good Burniate

I love my Scythe fans, and i am stoked that they are coming out with new 140's. These are drilled for BOTH 140 and 120mm mounts. (isn't about time?!) Hopefully they turn out to be awesome.

Yeah, I still run IDE's. We have hundreds of them laying around, so I normally just use what we have to save money.

I agree with the minimum 9, got my case last night. I managed to fit everything in there very nicely even with the giant heatsink/radiator I have. I'll have to do some cable management, but the airflow I got with with crappy fans I currently have is fantastic. I'm already loving this case. and I've had it for roughly 14 hours. Will post pics once I've got it cleaned up. I'm excited because it looks even with that monster cooler I'll be able to fit a 200mm fan in (as long it's 20mm thick or less.)

i guess you can remove the preinstalled connection card from the hot swap and use your IDE cables...

Also, I read on another forum that the front panel fans hitting a GPU fan would mess up that GPU's fan rotation and flow, any idea on this?

Any idea?

Ideally, in this case, you are going for a wind-tunnel effect blowing across your board. I am using the front 140's as intakes and the rear 120 as exhaust, with the top fan absent. Positive/negative pressure really isn't a factor in a case as well ventilated as the XB. Achieving good air flow across your motherboard/components will be more beneficial. As far as the GPU cooling goes, mine has never run so cool, in any case I have used with it. (Coolermaster cosmos, and Fractal Design mini). Hitting it with fresh air from outside the case is a big plus in my book. IMO, the top fan isn't necessary at all, Unless you happen to be water-cooling and want some extra flow over your VRM's.

Hi Guys,

Here's an update to my build, I ended up changing out all tubing for straight black, adding some Monsoon compression (red) fittings and purchased Corsair cable kit (red).

Nope, no water cooling, so I will just let that be a natural ventilation. And I think the GPU cooling was someone saying the stock fans on the card, were rotating -> that way, and the intake was counteracting that messing with his cooling, no idea though really.

Any word on how to cool the HDD's? can I bolt a fan/cooler directly on them and vent it out the front of the case (where the x-swap opens)?
