So all in all:

-Remove both drive caddies, and move one next to the PSU, which will house the SSD and 2 x HDDs
-Chuck the spare SSD over on the right
-Replace the top and front 200mm with a Bitfenix Spectre Pro (presume I don't need to mod the top of the case since these fans are 30mm? Will they interfere with the mobo?)
-either buy one of the fans mentioned by Zillerella and add an AF-120 to the back, or buy a H60SE

That sound right?

1. Yes.
2. yes
3. There are some problems with a bitfenix on the top but I would remove it and get a 120mm at the most back location smile.gif
4. Noctua for performance and phanteks for looks (they still perform very close togetger). If you get the phanteks I would buy a new fans too it with higher static pressure. Sure you can still go with the H60 i you want smile.gif I don't know how many money you want to use on 1 fan, but I would get the "Be quiet! Silent wings 2" for the back and one in top if I was you. Just ask krullmeister, he will confirm how silent and good the Silent wings are wink.gif

Ooo please tell? What issues are there? Will the Coolermaster 200mm be a better choice there? Can I use two 120 fans up top instead of one?

I had a look, and the Phantek actually pushes a ram stick out if you have large heat spreaders. Details here
http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/5167/phanteks-ph-tc12dx-tower-cpu-cooler-review/index7.html

So if I go air cooling, it'll be the Noctua for the CPU, and one Silent Wings at the back, and (one or two) at the top...

Okay, getting there, lol. Cooling seems to be a bit of a pain on this case. love everything else about it though.

Two 120mm fans will always be better, but one should be enough smile.gif You need to make sure that the cpu cooler also will get some air so it's dosent need to struggle for it. Thats why I say, get 1 fan in the back and one the the top back smile.gif

Depends on what motherboard you have.

You can't go wrong with that either. If you hate the color of the fan I can tell you that noctua will do some black fans next year tongue.gif

Wait, now I'm confused. I thought the top and back should be exhausts, or is that not set in stone? I've built a couple of PCs in my time, but this is the first I've ever tried to understand cooling for (can you tell? biggrin.gif)

Looking here, it seems stock is all exhaust except the front, but with an H100 up top, that should be intake

Thanks for your help mate, rep to you!

You might as well go for a H80 for example. you wouldn't have to worry about Fitting it with the RAMs i guess and the H80 performs really well, it might be a bit explensive compared to a air cooling solution. Can't tell you how the H60 performs, never looked it up..

A 680 is about $150 more than a 770 here in korea. I guess I won't be selling my used cards. Have to keep using them until they just don't hold up with new games. Not that I need to upgrade anytime soon.

H80i performs good, but I wouldnt buy any products with the corsair link software. It's just bad and got so many problems. The H60 2013 edt. is good to stock and mild OCs.

Corsair Link isn't a really good Software, but it gets the Job done for most users and i think you're not even forced to use it..
I Keep my fans on the quiet Profile and everything runs smooth and cool (got the H100i though)
But they did improove it in the last few months.. (atleast a Little bit) tongue.gif

Some people have problems with it but I've not. You don't need to use the software. It will just run on balanced mode without the software control. I personally have liked my h100i and 860i psu and the software to monitor and control.
