Yes, and no. There is not enough room to put in the stock location, so I am using a modified swiftech microres mounted next to the Radiator in the back.

I'm actually not using filters right now, been busy. On my old rig I just went to the local Home Depot type store here in Japan and bought that cheesecloth type stuff that you use on fans for the oven and stuff. You can cut it to whatever size you want and it's dirt cheap!

Here are some Photos:



You can see the cutout for the 230 fan in the front, and the cutout for the third Fan that is blocked by the plastic top piece.


Here you can see the hole for the third fan and the hole in the back where the Reservoir will be mounted to the top next to the radiator.



Here I cut out the 140mm fan for more air flow and I will put on a grill to protect fingers. One thing you can see is where I cut the upper power supply mounts to clear the radiator and fans.



Here is the Small hole I cut to allow the cables from the top to come down behind the Motherboard.

I have to make room for 8 drives. I need the bottom 3 slots for 3 SAS drives with cooling and the next one for DVDRW. I originally wanted to mount the radiator with the outlets towards the front but there was not enough room to place the tubes without 90 degree bends, also I would have had to use either a 5 1/4 inch reservoir or 90 degree bends. I am going on Vacation Wednesday to Walt Disney World (plug for free Admission) and will be gone for the rest of the week, The case needs a good 2 weeks to fully cure the paint so it is less prone to chipping. I will post more pictures when I get back.

Should I let my final coat sit that long. I was going to prime, and wet sand, prime, went sand. and then if any left, prime again and a little tack cloth. then do 2 or 3 spraypaint coats wetsanding in between. and leaving the last coat a few days extra. I'm getting it tomorrow and will start the painting tomorrow also if I can.

+1 for the paint job. What paint did you use?
I did something like this to my P180, but I saw that the HAF did not need any cutting to manage the front panel wires. Here is what I did to mine:


And here is the other side:


It looks a little different now but just to give you an idea. I would also suggest covering the edges of where you made the cut, that way you dont get any wires snagged on the rough spots. That will make it look a lot cleaner too

Edit: To xguntherc- yes, the longer you let it cure= less chance of paint chipping. I found out the hard way Im not sure about 2 weeks though. I would give it at least 2-3 days.

.
I have a radiator and it made it more of pain in the ass to route the cables and yes I have some c channel to put in the hole. I used Rustoleum fine textured paint. Its for like outdoor lamps and such, I like it for several reasons, its thick and does not run much, its does not need sanding and it did not multiple coats, just one base and a touch up where I missed.

I also painted the DVDRW case black and Im think Im going to put some UV leds in the DVDRW and then paint the door with UV blue paint, not sure how it will work.
