Try tightening the screws that hold the window to the side panel.  Just don't over do it, you might crack the window.

the side panel window is not attached with screws! lachen.gif

The standard fans are a bit loud and the plexi glass on the side window (given that you get the white one or the black sidepanel with the window) makes popping and cracking noises for a bit while the inside of the case heats up. mad.gif

This is a medium airflow case. What do you plan to put into your wife's case? If you're only going to be using one video card and not overclocking then there's no problem with the airflow in this case with the stock fans.

If you are adding another video card, and possibly overclocking, then you way want to replace the stock fans. As for what's "the best" fan to replace the 200mm fans with, that depends on what your looking for. You can purchase fans similar to the stock fans that will fit like a glove and be fairly quiet (the stock fans are quiet when turned down anyway).

However, many 200mm fans won't fit perfectly because their mounting holes are in different locations. This requires you to be a little creative in how you mount them. Some 200mm fans are too thick (30mm) and will require you to move the hard drive bay into the rear position (or remove them completely).

I would recommend going to the top of the page and clicking on "search this thread" and search for 200mm fan.

Personally, I'm using a 30mm thick high speed NZXT fan When turned up all the way it is loud, but fairly quiet when turned down. It moves a massive 166cfm at full speed (which is why I'm using it since I overclock and have two HD6970 cards). However, it draws a lot of power and I know people who have killed the fan controller when using them (I don't use the stock fan controller).

I also modded my case to add a second intake fan on the bottom (120mm).

Really, if you're not using multiple GPUs and overclocking the airflow in this case is fine. I've had many worse.

I have fried my fan controller. I hooked up two 120mm 225cfm 3400rpm protechnic fans to it and it only works from medium to high now rather than low to high. Corsair said they would replace though but just havent gotten to it. I have to send them mine before they send me new one which is probably why i havent done it yet but Ill get to it. The fan controller does suck though and you only want to hook cheap low rpm fans to it if your going to use it.

Received my windowed side panel yesterday. Is it normal that the center is kinda blurry and distorts the view behing it? I tried cleaning it, with no results.
