So far I'm loving this case...I already ordered an extra 200mm fan to mount on the top (only one comes with the case)....and maybe add a 120/140mm where the 5.25 drive bays are...that should about do it for cooling....

I would way push it out the top. Heat rises and the big fan would be better to push out that heat than the 120 in the back.

The whole "hot air rises" thing gets tossed out the window when fans push the air around.

i thought about mounting it top to bottom, but i decided to go with the traditional side to side to get some extra airflow around my ram.

Only options is mount it outside on the back or top. If you have a short PSU it will fit in the bottom with hard drive bays removed.

Here our some pic of internal locations. Pics are a little washed out I had it on the wrong settings.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for the detailed reply, you answered my question thoroughly and I have decided to scrap a little more money together and get a 690 II advanced instead. Thanks again man!

I saw you got registered. Awesome! Can't wait till July to see what everyone builds. I hope the paracord work out for you. Look on the OP I put up some links today. There's a good video on paracord.
Maybe you should jump up to Professional?

Your welcome. What no HAF series? Make sure you check out the refurbs in the cooler master store. I've bought several and they all look brand new.

Anyone selling or know where I can get a blue LED fan for cheap to replace the red on my 932? I'm not very willing to get it at $20.

You need to find someone that has one used or you can mod that fan by switching out the leds.
