Push/Pull is even better, great to hear that will fit. Yeah I prefer not to have to spend another $300 replacing the motherboard if I do not have to. I had this EVGA X58 Classified board for almost 6 years with no issues, so I am inclined to go for the EVGA X99 mATX. But I am just not to crazy on the decisions that EVGA made with their latest mATX X99 motherboard, like CPU socket spacing, top GPU is close to memory slot, and M.2 slot only support low profile SSD's, among other things.

What about the front Flex Bay, is it possible to have a dual bay reservoir and 120/140mm fan's mounted in the front?

If you put a dual-bay res in the front, you are left with only 5 flex-bays so you will only be able to put 1 fan (120 uses 3 bays and 140 uses 4 bays).

As for the 60mm rads in the pedestal, you can fit both in push-pull and you're left with around 70mm of space between them.

Not really a fan of 2 tone,I am running a Asus Maxmius Gene Vi,Noiseblocker Black Fans,Mars 760 so what ever will help a Black n Red theme look more aggressive.

I've always done black cases so maybe it's time for a change,I will be having custom air brushing done as well so I can't really go wrong with ether color.

I just want to make sure I have enough airflow for the rads. So I am guessing there is no problem with air flow cancelling out in the pedestal with the two rads that close together.

If you think you are going to have a problem with airflow, just get a fan mount for the front flex-bay and drop it in the pedestal to push air towards the back.

Yeah that would work. The way Kevin had those rads setup, I would think both were expelling air out of the sides of the pedestal. Also I am wondering the thickness of these fans in the pictures.

IIRC, CL always uses the same NZXT fans in their pics. FN 120's I think. Anyways, I'm pretty sure it's a 120x25mm fan. Standard stuff.
