Anyone have a recommendation for silent 80mm exhaust fans

EDIT: Decided to order two Noctua NF-RF8 PWMs.

Anyone tried putting Slimline Fans on the bottom?
They are only 13mm - 15mm thick and I wonder if they fit?

15 mm is too thick with micro-atx mboard (pins), but 12 mm f.e. SCYTHE SLIP STREAM should be fit...

Just found a nice article, why we should not use custom cooler GPU-s in the air 240, if the m.2 slot is occupied right under the GPU itself with an SSD....

Question on the Carbide Air 240.

Is it hard to feed the 3.5 inch drive bays and are the 3.5 drive bays easy to access?

Liking this case. smile.gif

Thanks
post #2937 of 3774
It's quite easy, just take off the side panel and that's it!
Also the bays are toolless thumb.gif

From what I read somewhere, fishing the cables through can be a bit of a pain.

Yeah in the LinusTechTips review, Luke said the 8 pin CPU cable was very squished with the HDD cage in place. I'm personally getting a 1TB 2.5" HDD and putting that in with my SSD's and forgoing the 3.5" HDD cage.

For what it's worth I had no problem getting a Cablemod CPU cable behind the 3.5" HDD cage, can definitely see how the stock braided PSU cable could be a problem though considering it's all in a single bundle.
