I can buy a new case if I want to but I'd rather use something I already have. Thanks.
Why not leave your dust filters on? Clean your case every two weeks like I do with a air can.

Any 120mm will fit but the stock Antec Tricool fans with the fan speed nob are with the fan so once you remove them you wont have any fan speed controller.

You can always get any other Antec Tricool 120mm fan they come with a fan speed controller.

Is the Tricool my only choice? I wanted to get some nicer fans, guess it doesn't matter though. Just curious.

You can use any other 120mm fans that you want I was just suggestion that the tricool comes with fan speed controls thats all.

Ive changed all my 7 fans into the Enermax Appollish and they are great.

Oh, I meant for a fan with a built-in controller. Not having built-in controllers will lead to many more wires, but it's probably the way I'm going to go. My wiring skills aren't great and I keep hearing the 1200 isn't the top choice for routing. I guess I just need to find some awesome fans. Thanks.

the tricools are pretty good fans, i think. they do move a lot of air, pretty quiet - and built in controller. i love em. also they can be found 7$ shipped so its hard to complain
post #3116 of 4556
Do the tricools I see online have the dial type speed selector that you can use from outside the case or the switch type that you have to reach into the case to use?

The wire isn't long enough to reach out of the case it looks like this:

That's what I thought. Thank you. Is it better to have positive or negative air pressure in the 1200? I think I'm going to get some Enermax Magmas, anyone used them? Then I will also need a controller.
