The nepton is kind of like a watercooler though, isnt it? As for the side panel, is there any "easy" way to attach 2 140s to it? Brackets or that sort of thing? Either way, I will focus on the front, top (which also has 1 230 in it, I guess Ill just put 2 120s in there too), and the heatsink for the moment. Im not planning to overclock my 780s too far (infact, the solo right now is running stock), so all this will hopefully keep me safe and stable. Thanks for your help! Your original post is great as well!
My only request/suggestion I guess for the original guide would be to have definitions for some of your terminology (PWM, AFB, AIO, VRM, etc). It may be common knowledge or I may have missed the definitions somewhere but Im new to all this so I had a hard time figuring it out. ^_^ Cheers!
Delta AFB = Delta AFB1212* (* as in speed rating) PWM = Pulse-width-modulation for fans to be controlled without incident through the motherboard. Requires a fourth pin on the motherboard and the fan wire (commonly blue or gray on the Deepcool fans but for the UFs and GFs it's all PWM anyway)
Nepton ... Just think of it as a "AIR COOLER" It's technically one since you don't have to bother with filling it up or anything like that
4 120s is possible with a AIO on the side panel but don't do it. Cut the mesh a little bit to fit dual 140s on the side panel. If yours doesn't have a window.
Don't focus on the top. It's not very useful but instead concentrate on the front top which is the 5-1/4" inch bay

That's because your front intake is lacking.
In a Deepcool Tesserac the stock 1000rpm front fan weren't any useful for the GPU cooling and a side intake actually helped but then a front WFB1212M with a side exhaust improved my temps by a factor-of-ten compared to side intake and WFB1212M
Granted it's still hot in here but at least it's much cooler. I had to drop the clocks to use the stock front fan configurationEdited by DaveLT - 1/5/14 at 9:40am
