Is it possible to switch out the top 2 big humongo fans for 3 120mmm without a rad? Also does the box fan thingy on the back even worth it?

Yes, you should be able to put 3x120mm fans without a rad like in the instructions (don't know whether 38mm thick fans would fit, but I guess they can since a rad is able to). The box thingy maybe worth it if you have a load of cards on those slots.

I have the case as well but it is in silver and I don't have a windowed side panel. I was thinking about water cooling with this case with only the CPU. That one mod I saw with a radbox supporting such a large radiator with five fans on the back. I was interested in how does that work. I need to replace those top 230mm fans and the one 120mm on the back, as my temps are just too high (50*C). Only the HDD is cool around 36*C.

I was thinking about buying Petra's water cooling kit for my rig.

Yes you can replace the top 230mm fans with up to three 120mm fans. If you were trying to refer to the external air duct in your second question, I think it is worth it once you add a 120mm fan into it (make it exhaust air out of the case), especially if you have dual slot video cards. It dropped my GTX 260 temps a few degrees. I'm using a COOLER MASTER R4 series 120mm fan in there (no LED). 2000 RPM/90 CFM.

Hello all! My first post here! I have an ATCS also, full of antec fans, as well as scythe slipstreams on the HSF. I just ordered the CM Blue LED 120mm 90cfm fans to replace all in my case as well as the HSF, as well as the two blue led 230mm for the top.. Also got An an arctic cooling accelero extreme 280 for my GPU. I am sure the performance will be great and the noise drastically reduced, but i have noticed in your pics (boredgunner) that they dont really seem to put out much light. Was it just the pic, or is that the way they really look? Either way, i still plan on getting the clear side panel when i can find one in stock.

And to anyone who is using the TRUE 120 cooler. I have it in push pull with the wire clips it comes with. The wire clips bump into the top support on the frame, making the cooler sit a little bit crooked. Instead of being lvl its pointed a little downward. Still get great temps, but was just wondering if anyone has run into this issue. I have ordered to fan brackets in the hopes it will solve this problem. Any help is good help.

That's correct, they really look like that in person. The LEDs are not very bright, and the fan blades are barely transparent. Personally, I like this look. I have plenty of light coming from my two Logisys 12" cold blue cathodes (soon to be 3). Oh, and welcome to the forums! I'm a 'noob' here too.

Thanks for the welcome! I do not plan on pianting the interior, so i just mighht add so cold cathodes. I did find a Side clear panel as NCIXUS. I got that ordered as well, and might replace the clear panel with UV blue and add a UV light as well for that nice glowing effect. Maybe paint my fan holders with uv paint as well...Want to make it pop! BTW, love the mods you did with the extra fans. i have a kama bay also, and just may copy a few of your other ideas!

Yuck. Don't be surprised if they fail and die in a few months. Those fans are notorious for choking and dying on restrictive surfaces, and having very little static pressure when they DO work.

Barring that, Be sure to fill out your system specs in the User CP, via the link on the left side of the panel marked "Add System", and get up any pics you have of your setup, they're always welcome. Added.

Will definately do that! I love adding pics, that way i can get some good suggestions about cable management and such. I am always open to constructive criticism. I have heard that too about Scythe fans. One of the reasons i have antecs now is i was always afraid of sleeve bearings. The new CM's are sleeve, so i will see how that goes.

Also, how do i join the ATCS 840 club. I just registered with ocnet so i am very new to all of this.

I'm considering buying this case. First thing though i'll have to make sure it fits under my table. I am not much of a technical person, i just need a case with great airflow, lots of space and ease of installing. This seem to have all of it, on top of that i like the design quite a lot.

I wont be installing any modifications, hope the case is still fine without them.


Well, maybe I will join the club soon, if i dont decide for Antec 1200 or something else. But really so far 840 is my top candidate.
By the way, thanks for all pics you guys posted, keep them comming.
