I'm using the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme, and it's so freakin huge that I had to take the vent off the side. No room for a fan, but that's pretty much what it's gonna be like with all mid-tower cases. (there's about an inch of clearance at best).

I also used a fan cage (can't remember where I bought it) that you put in three external 5.25" drive bays (leaving 2 open). I replaced the fan the cage came with using a Thermaltake Smartfan (93CFM).

I have a another Smartfan on the bottom front, and another one on the Ultra-120. The rear fan is a Delta TFB (220CFM).

So mine is kind of a special case (no pun intended), because it's very loud. I'll admit there are better cases out there for cooling, but I don't think it'd be to bad if you got a couple 90-100CFM fans that aren't too loud.

Yeah, in the stock location.

I got your PM too. I was going to post some pictures but my girlfriend has the stupid digital camera (it's actually hers, lol) so I'll have to wait until later tonight or tomorrow, sorry.

Oh, and the 92mm fan is on the 8800GTX (on the HR-03 Plus aftermarket cooler).

I'm loading up a pic I found on my PC, hold on...

Here we go



Honestly though, I wouldn't suggest the Delta TFB or a Vantec Tornado... unless you don't care if your computer sounds like a rocket ship (I don't ).

The Thermaltake 93CFM smartfans aren't that loud but they move quite a bit of air though.

PS: Whoops, sorry for any thread hijacking here....
