yes, you have to remove the front bezel to get acces to the screws under the case but it is very easy to do.

I got a quote for the side panel... Shipping to Korea was as much as the panel. Then I would be hit with import taxes. So all in all it would probably cost me $300. No side panel for me unless can find one locally. I don't know where you live but would interested hearing your quote.

Yes, Spectre Pros are decent case fans. Only thing I'd say is don't use these on your H80, they don't do so well on the radiators.

The problem is that you can only fit a 20mm thick 200mm fan up there, maybe 25mm thick. I dunno if you've noticed but you can see how a 200mm fan has to partially go through this small opening at the top of the motherboard tray. If you've got the Corsair stock 200mm installed up there you can check this by taking off the side panel. This fan is 20mm thick and it fits quite snugly in that opening, so you definitely wouldn't be able to fit a 30mm thick fan in there without modding, as far as I know. Bitfenix Spectre Pros are 30mm, thick which seem to be best 200mm fan right now. Cooler Master Megaflows are also 30mm thick. So I think most people decide to go with 2 120mm on their radiator for that reason.

If you want a quieter 200mm white fan you could try the 'normal' Spectre LED (not the pro); they are listed as 20mm thick which is the same as the stock fan, and should fit in that slot at the top of the motherboard. If you go with 2x120mm just remember they are outside the case; you'll have to decide depending on your setup if you want these as LED or not, with the top & outside of the case lit up all the time...

I did read that you have to remove the front of the case to remove the plastic thing, is this true?:

There are 4 screws coming up from underneath the case to hold the plastic base, you can't get to the cfront 2 without pulling the face off. On the other hand, you don't necessarily have to remove the HDD base to add the thicker fan, it should have just enough clearance. There are a couple of pics in here somewhere showing the SSD mounted on that base, so you could do that & keep the rest of your drives in their rack in front of the PSU.

looking good! Do you find that side fan does much without a hole in the acrylic side panel?

Looking much better! I am also wondering the same thing as Darylrese. Does it help much. And how did you mount it there?

When I had my asrock z68 board my video cards seemed to be much cooler than when I switched to the sabertooth. Now the top one usually idling at much higher temp and would like to cool it off a bit.

It has dropped the temps quite a bit about around 7-10 degrees, im sure it would be much better with the cut out in the acrylic but i am waiting on the full side panel before i make are more mods to it. \

I used something similar to this: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17728/slf-13/Expansion_Slot_Side_Fan_Mounting_Kit_-_Black.html#blank Quite steady and seems to be doing the job.

cool. Awhile ago i made a similar mod from some old PCI brackets:





I then made a custom side window instead. Its not as impressive as your temperature drop but i do have two cards in SLI.
