As for pressure fans off the top of my head i would recommend Noctua's NF-F12 PWM fan's they are quite expensive and the colors are slightly weird but they are the best in the market i think.
Alternatively Corsair have just released their own Fans and so far the performance spec's are quite promising. they are slightly cheaper and also black. for the Front i would recommend their Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition and if you were wanting matching fans they also do Airflow versions that are more like traditional fans. They are also very good (but get the quite editions) and will match the other corsair fans in the front if that is something you want. Personally if it were my case i would throw some SP 120 Quiet editions in the front and then leave the rest stock.
Other than that i cannot think of any other "decent" static pressure fans but if there are others i'm sure other users will be sure to recommend them.

Thanks, I have an Antec 300 now so I am familiar with the "dust rings", nothing a vacuum doesn't fix thumb.gif

So it seems pressure fans will be best for intake, do you think it's a worthwhile investment to get a fan controller? I bought the three speed Antec tri-cools for this case, so I could just set it and forget it, but it seems I will need to manage the fans a little more now.

I hated how little room there was inside my R2, and since I was only using 1 hdd and 1 ssd, I did what I had to.

before:

After:

Drilled out the stock cage
put the fan controller into the included 5.25-3.5" adaptor (backwards for ease of cable management)
elastic-mounted the hdd (no vibrations anymore)
velcro-dot the ssd onto the bottom of the 5.25 cage
zip tied the **** out of everything

Nice build Nuzart, I like what you did with your SSDs. By the way, yesterday I was looking at those Silverstone filters. I am not sure on whether to go for them or rather use some Demciflex ones.

I used the silverstone ones because they can be screwed in (which I needed to do so it would stay) not sure if the demi ones do or not, haven't looked at them

more to to add fat radiators and beastly drop-down LCD screens with a
stripper-pole and and and .... (*sorry, carried away*)

it looks fine, unobstructed air-flow to the rear of the case and no having the air go UP and
foul the CPU cooling system...

if you aren't using it, loose it.. heat holders
