I actually have 2 front intakes (one in the drivebay) and one on the side, and if I were to remove my top fan... yeah.

The Dark Knight fits fine with the top fan. People assumed you were talking about the top side panel fan(since there can be 2 fans on the side panel). You should have 3 intakes and 2 exhaust in this case.

I would like to have both side panel fans on. Any idea what cooler that is similar in TRUE or Dark Knight design and can fit all fans? It has to be a bit shorter than Dark Knight.

Can't help you there, but how about using the ones on the back instead?

ALSO:
Guys, new awesome idea that propably won't work. WATERCOOLING. I dont know ANYTHING about it and I don't have the money or knowledge to get something 'real'. But I'd really like to get into it some day. But for now, how about getting a complete watercooling kit for my CPU? Im thinking of the NorthQ 3590 WC kit. But will it fit, or do I have to put it outside of the case?

Link (swedish, best I could find though...): http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=373988

Or would it just be plain dumb to get this instead of a DK?

OK, I don't watercool nor have I ever. I don't know the first thing about it. But, I have heard that this is tough case to get a WC loop installed into. I'm sure if you had a good idea of what you were doing, and got all the right parts that you know will fit, it can be done. In fact, there's a decent setup in this thread, which belongs to r11.

With that said, and coming from someone who has only aircooled, I thing aircooling would be much easier in this case, but watercooling can be done.

EDIT: here's a good starting point with r11's build: LINK

double EDIT: Saw the loop you linked, and from everything that I've heard, pre-built loops are notorious for poor build quality. If you are going to do watercooling, pretty much everyone on this forum is going to say to build a custom loop. With that said, Corsair is about to release the H50, which has gotten mixed, but overall good reviews so far. But the stigma of pre-built loops is still out there

that's why I replaced all but the top one with Yate Loon's from my previous build. I've actually added an additional fan, and it's still quieter that the stock configuration

I saw his pics, but he has... lots of stuffies. All i want is the space for a 240mm radiator. I'm going to do some research on this though... If it turns out i can make a custom loop without spending too much, I'll do it.

But my question remains, can i install a 240mm radiator anywhere inside this case?

Internally? Doesn't look like it, not without modding (cutting). The back is out because of the PCI brackets. The top? maybe, but with lots of cutting and removing that top exhaust fan. The front? again, looks like you'd have to make sure your DVD drive is at the very top, and even then there's not a lot of room because of the HDD rack. Gonna be veeeery tight if it's possible at all.

But there's always the option to mount externally on the rear or wherever. Again, I've never mounted one, I'm just looking at dimensions. If I'm talking out of my a**, someone correct me.

Hope that helps, and sorry if I didn't read/understand your first post correctly. I just got done flying a 2-hour flight in thunderstorms dodging lightning (I'm in flight school) and I'm a little wiped
