Might get this case to replace my old crappy case, but does anyone know if i can add 2x 140 mm up on top? I really want to improve airflow in this case, and i like it a lot

No, you cant add 2 140 fans to the top, unless you mod it some way. I have my case with proper airflow now. In a couple days I am going to replace the 140 fan I have in the front(where the 200mm fan goes), with 2 120mm fans and slightly mod the case for it. Then I will have 3 120mm fans as intake up front, and 3 as exhaust(one in back, 2 on a RAD on top). My temps are fine now, and I think it is a great case.

EDIT: looking at the top fan mounts now, and you may get a 120 and a 140 up top, but it will be very close. But if you mount the fans under the top(close to the MOBO) you may be able to use 2 140s. But I am NOT sure on this, will be close. Both will require you to at least drill new holes

I have also put a 120mm fan into the 5.25 Bays, the corsair one it came with as exhaust(quiet fan that only reaches 1k rpm). I have pictures on page 10

Not sure if the Antec fan is thicker than the one thats in it, but the front fan is held in by a large bracket. So if the fan is thicker than 25mm(I think thats what it is) you may have to mount the fan directly(like I did with a Antec 140mm Tricool) to the grill, or mod the bracket. The bracket is nice because it is easy to remove.
Are there screw holes to fit 2 12cm fans on the front?

No not at all, but thats the fun part. But 1 120mm fan will fit almost perfectly on the mesh, holes line up good. 140 doesnt line up to good, but is doable using some included fan grommets. For 2 120mm I am going to have to make holes to mount the fans, and drill or cut out some more in the front metal to open up for the added airflow surface. Most likely going to drill it out to match what is there, as closely as I can. Then cover the unused 200mm holes so the air doesnt circulate.

Side note, I just took my HDD and SSD and mounted them into the tray I made to mount the fan into the 5.25 bays. They are sideways(perfect for cable management), in a wind tunnel, and easily removeable. Now that fan is able to be behind the 5.25 drive bay covers, so I no longer have to make a grill and filter. You would never know its there.

add me to the list... if pics are needed let me know..

by the way i noticed when i turn the knob for fan speed the fans stay at the same speed... is this because i didn't connect the other cables hanging from the front? i mean theres only 4 connects on my mb do i have to have a split connector?

your mb has nothing to do with the fan controller. You should have the 4pin molex hooked to your psu and the 4 fan leads to the fans you want to control.

The fan controller only has a small range. Mine only changes speed at about 3/4 the way to full. Then they only change a little bit. I wish I could mod the fan controller to make it have greater range, from about 30% to 100% would be nice. Instead it is like 85%-100%
