You wrote "I think there are plenty of 140mm fans that are good for cooler/radiator use" and went on to list several fans and their CFM ratings, which seemed to me that you were suggesting CFMs were the most important thing to consider when choosing a fan for a rad.
I apologize for mistaking you for ciarlatano using Phanteks fans on 280 radiator.

You chastised me for saying some 140mm fans are good. You say they are not as good as 120mm yet the industry trend is toward more 140mm fans, including their use on coolers and radiators.

I will follow the industry and you can follow your own path. thumb.gif
There's still not many good 140mm radiator fans especially when compared to the offering you get in the 120mm fan size

As the demand for them for 140mm wide radiators increases so will the availability of good fans.

Not that many years ago 80mm were the norm and it was hard to get good 120mm fans.

That's going to take quite some time. Most people still use 120mm sized radiators so I don't see where this demand thing is coming from. The only reason I think manufactures actually have an accentive to create good 140mm fans is the 140mm clcs and there's not even too many of those.

I'm not a water guy. I was 12 or so years ago before anything was commercially available. We had to CNC mill our own waterblocks, used aquarium and pond pumps, car heater or compact car radiators, etc. I've been considering getting back into water with this new case and been shopping around and seeing 140mm wide radiators many places. Lots more now than a year ago. wink.gif Who know what will happen in another year or two. wink.gif

We are going to need more decently priced wide girth cases for 140mm rads to become more common place, me thinks.

Indeed.

Like Enthoo Primo. Wouldn't need to be much wider to fit 420 in bottom. thumb.gif
Added width would give more room for resevoir on back along side of GPU.
Slightly longer for longer GPU and reservoir to fit on reservoir bracket in front.
Another second fan control hub.
Make the base taller so there is more vent area for airflow to bottom radiator.
Mod the front door bottom vent for more vent area in front.

Except for that ugly ass front vent cover. Oh how I loathe that spot. I'll wait till I actually have the case to make solid judgements but I definitely see myself changing that up a bit.

The front vent is on my list of mods. And hopefully a vent in the front door to match.

MNPCTECH grille fits. Jesse put one in his.. Can't see it now cus he broke the image link. biggrin.gif

I think Jesse used the first one of these.
