it can fit in this case in vertical orientation...
in horizontal orientation you'd have to chip away a bit of the side panel though because the copper tip touches the side panel a bit.

Thanks, I just ordered it! I guess I will put it exhausting towards the top to go with the airflow of my case. For 35 bucks, I think this will be the best money spent considering this will be for my brothers PC and there won't be an overclock. The only reason I need it cause I accidently drop the stock cooler and the fan bracket broke right off the heatsink lol.

Ok I want to do a build using the Vulcan, but I have a few concerns.
1. How many fans will I be able to fight? I keep trying to find out but different websites keep giving me different answers.
2. Is there good cable management? I want to be able to show my parts without a clutter of cables.
3. Is it mod friendly? By that I mean will it be a struggle to separate the parts to paint them?
4. Is it possible to put a window in the side panel instead of the grill?
5. With all the parts in is it too heavy to carry around to LAN parties?
Thanks for helping me! BTW This is my first build and I am going to have this computer for 5-6 years (I still will upgrade some parts like the GPU), so I want it look and perform beautifully.

1) 1 120mm in the front, 1 92mm in the rear, two 120mm in the top, and one 190 mm on the side panel; yes it's 190mm, not 200mm eventhough NZXT advertises it as 200mm. You have to get the NZXT "200mm" fan for it to fit.
2) It's alright, not as good as full size towers tough. There's enough room behind the mobo to cram all the wires behind. Having a m
3) I think it's easy enough to take the case apart. Although, since it is a small case, once you put everything in, you have to do a ton of work to do something simple since everything is crammed in there. But an empty case is easy enough to mod.
4) Yes, there's a previous post of someone doing just that but I don't remember where it was.
5) No, and the handle makes it easy.

If you haven't already, you should really look through previous posts and see the pictrures what others have done so you can get a better idea of what can be done with the case and what it looks like when it has been done.

Thank you so much! And by the way I was looking thru but there are so many posts.

Check out my build log. I put a window on my Vulcan by just taking out the mesh and using an 11"x14" piece of acrylic. thumb.gif

Does anyone know what size the LED for the front panel is and how many are there? I want to change the orange LED to white.

There's a total of 3. One for the HDD using its own seperate cable. Two for the strip that's below the HDD led. That one has the small circuit that hooks up in the back to the on/off switch. I believe the size are 4mm, but I couldn't find any. I was able to mash 5mm ones into the holes just fine. Just take not of the spacing between the leds and the case, there's not much room at all so when you replace them, make sure there isn't alot of material above the light.

I changed the lower strip colors to red myself.

add me to the club !! biggrin.gif

got this case coming in the mail. I just bought this fan but it sounds like its not going to fit after reading this thread frown.gif http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835345051
any chance it is going to fit? or am i adding this to my list of mods? Im not sure if they made a second version of this but mine came with two fan controllers on the front panel I also order two more fan controllers that im maually going to install for full fan control.
