Might be an odd request, but are there any pics of it sideways in a home theater shelf. Or just in a home theater setup? I know the 250d is probably better suited for this but Id like to just yank my internals out of my current case and into the Air.

When using the sp120s is it best to get the pwm versions or just the regular 3 pin versions?

That all depends on your uses. If you are using a fan controller, then a 3 pin would probably be the best for you. If you are using a PWM splitter connected your mobo, the PWM version would be best for you.

Hey all, I just finished my latest build with the 540 today. I am planning on swapping out the front two 140mm's for 3 120's, but am a little concerned about the fit. I could not for the life of me get any of my other fans to fit on the rear exhaust ( tried bitfenix spectre pro / NZXT, Arctic cooling ) - the holes would NOT line up. I just ended up keeping the included corsair fan back there for the time being. No big deal, BUT, I'm wondering if the front 3 120mm's are much the same - wonky spacing - or will any 120mm fan do? Cheers! thanks in advance!

I didn't have any issues mounting any of my fans to the chassis. I've got some NZXT FX 140's, mounted top and front, I've not had any issues with my 120mm Cougar's either, on the back. Strange.

Well admittedly I haven't tried replacing the front fans as of yet, because I need to pick up a couple more 120's. I was just a little concerned that I would run into the same problems installing the front 120's.as the back 140 ( I see you say your using 120 for the back, I was trying to use a replacement 140 in the same area - no go) I thought maybe they were designed specifically for the corsair fan ( I realize that though the mounting holes will all be in the same spaces, the corsair fans do have a different type of layout, not square all around ).. .. but it sounds like from your experience anyways that any 120 SHOULD fit in there 3 across.

  • If I remove all the plastic panels and covers, can I still attach the side panels (mobo and PSU sides)?
  • Can you remove the feet?

I don't know where you read about the x60

But post #1150 says you can use it.

Posting from my phone, won't let me copy the link for some reason. Sorry.
