Hello there, I am soon to purchase this case and I want to know if the lower fan on the side panel, if installed, touches the PSU? Cause that would be bad, cause I am planning to put two 120 mm fans on the side panel. :? Please, answer!

Well if you put a fan on the bottom mounts on the side window, it probably won't close and if you have a tall cpu cooler it might be a problem if you put a fan on the top mounts.

You could always play around and see if either or both do fit, or do what some others have done and maybe mount the top of the fan on the top mounts bottom.

Man, that would suck.. Just plain suck..
I dont plan on putting very high heatsinks, maybe a Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2. But thats not a very tall heatsink.
Could anyone who has actually tried that out explain more?

In my opinion the side fans are not really needed, there's a few of us here who has solid windows and don't have any issues with heat, if anything add a 120 fan in the drive bay. You'll have lots less dust inside your case not using a side fan.

Anything under 16cm in height should be fine, well given that the fans aren't too thick.

It is just that with my current no-fan case, when I close the side panel, my CPU gets extremely noisy because of the heat (AMD Phenom II X2 550 with stock heatsink), so I always keep my case open. That is why I thought that it would be cool if I installed all the fans possible. A cool system which I have never had before. Also my motherboard doesn't have any heatsinks on VRMs (Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P), but maybe just the upper side fan would be enough for VRM cooling?

The top 140mm and back 120mm do a decent job, but you could always add the extra 120mm to the side window.

Meh, this might be a real deal breaker. I might go with the Gladiator 600.. Thanks for your answers.

The 550 runs cool to begin with and with your stock cooler you wouldn't have any problem running the top side fan. With the edition of 1 side fan and the top fan on the case you'll be shocked just how cool it will run.
Still the Gladiator is a good second choice if you go that route.

You see, I guess that is some kind of caprice of me - I want all of the fan slots to be usable. Hate it when they are there just to.. be there. But maybe I am wrong. I still have much time to rethink and rethink..

Does the form of right side panel help in cable management? Cause Gladiator 600 doesnt have one and I was wondering if that helps. I would like to hide not only the 8pin CPU connector but also the 24pin MB connector as I saw some already did.
