This is my 2x120mm GT ap-14's up top on my 650D. It looks like the 140mm sized fans won't work together in the 120mm mounts. Would it work with minor mods on the grille holes? Probably. Worth modding for fans? not IMO.
I would just find some decent 120mm fans for up top. As far as good ones under 20$ each, check out yate loons or noctua? I have GT ap-14s and ap-15s in my build, and I love them but they don't fit the $ requirements.
Good luck!!

This does help, thank you! I might do 3x140mm TY-140's in the front of the case as intakes since that's what I tend to hear the most as it's only about 2 feet from my right ear. I might even just do a single TY-140 in the "front" top position as an intake to feed the cpu heatsink with fresh air and block off the other top fan mount that's more towards the rear of the case.

Are there better fans in terms of silent performance I should be looking at? Trying to stay <$20/fan.

Two TY-140's can fit up top. There was a post around 20+ pages ago with pics of just that. thumb.gif It looked like he used screws and zipties to hold them in place. biggrin.gif

hey guys, i ordered my 800d earlier today during a cyber monday sale on amazon. got it for 235 biggrin.gif


normally i'm kind of a creep when i do my research; i don't ask too many questions or talk to people about plans and such.
but i have a question about the 800d that i cant figure out:
the hot swap bay door on the front panel... is that 140mm? meaning could i theoretically take the door off, find a nice clean looking 140mm fan grill and throw a 140mm fan in there to bring in cool air from the front of the case? i'd appreciate the help, thanks.

You can only fit a 120mm fan in the 5.25" bay so there's no way you'll get a 140mm in a 3.5" hot swap bay. More like 80mm-92mm

i dont know if i made myself clear, and i say that because i have seen a 120mm fan in place of the bay door and it was smaller than the bay door, but i would essentially be doing the same thing; taking the bay DOOR off, and replacing it with a 140mm fan. not necessarily just putting a fan in the bay like you're suggesting. im not talking about the bay per se, but the bay DOOR and it's size relative to a 140mm size fan or similar.

Fans on the hdd cages are pretty pointless. There are so many obstructions from the structure of the cages that airflow is severely affected. On top of that, hdd just need adequate cooling. If you are worried that much about cooling it mount the hdd in the 5.25 bays. I'm all for looks but the hdd cage is not in dire need of cooling.

I will admit that fan on the hot swap bay would look awesome smile.gif

not necessarily. in the 700d the hdd's sit perpendicular with what would be air flow from a 140mm fan. the 800d hdd's sit horizontal, and because i'll only be using 1 or 2 drives, i could still get a good amount of air flow in the case. now i haven't said anything about it yet, i should have in the beginning but i plan on removing the hot swap feature from the case. i dont need/want it. this will open up the bay so it's not fully enclosed, therefore air could be transferred into the case from the front panel.

Makes sense now. So, you looking to remove the hdd and add a fan to improve airflow through the case? I know the 700d has a solid front panel but if you contact Corsair, they might send you an 800D panel. Then use opening from the hot swap bay door with some mesh (or cut the door) to install the fan.

yes sir that is the plan, and im planning all of this work even before getting my hands on the case lol. i actually ordered the 800d from amazon on monday. the reason i was explaining the 700d/800d differences is because the 800d hdd design will actually help me out in this pursuit versus the 700d. BUT i had no idea that there may lie a possibility into getting a 700d front panel, that would be pretty sweet.

i'll probably stick with the 800d front panel though and attempt my plan but i was just curious if anyone has tried sizing the front bay door up to a 140mm fan, and if it is a good fit, i'll order the parts necessary when i order the first phase of water cooling components on the 10th.
i have big build planned out that'll stretch the course of december to march.

Ill measure mine for your. One advised on removing the hot-swap bays from the 800D, take your time since its complicated as heck!
