The thing that bugs me about the NT06, is you have to run a bottom fan, and probably direct air upwards, out the side panel, but that isn't positive air.

I've been looking at the Prolimatech Sleek Vortex 140mm as an alternative if a full size fan doesn't fit. I'm not entirely sold on the NT06 with the bottom mounted fan either. I'm guessing the clearance is a little more than 83mm and Silverstone are being slightly conservative, but probably unlikely that it's a full 2mm more. The photos and details provided by Jimhans1 suggested it might be a fraction more than 83mm.
Is anyone able to do an accurate measurement?
Check out the case guide. The 83mm clearance is without counting the case fan.
AXP-200 would not fit with a 25mm fan, plus if I recall correctly 60mm is without the fan mounted, so a 15mm fan will also have a hard time.
Temperature differences between the AXP-100 and the AXP-200 are not so much, so it's better to have one AXP-100 and one case fan, there will be more cool air entering the case.ReviewEdited by Mariolillo - 3/26/14 at 7:05pm
