The square mod is done by clamping fan on a good miter saw with good carbide blade or on sliding fixture on a table saw and cut just to the inner circle of housing. Could do it with a belt sander too I suppose.. but be very careful about melting plastic.. Done properly you can clip the fan into the R4 front on newly cut sides.
If I can find a place with those prices but that ships to the US, I'm sold. Scan doesn't seem to venture outside of the UK. Shopping around now.

The R4 is one of the most versatile cases out there for airflow. You can set it up in a lot of ways. I'd really like to experiment with a few different fan setups (side-intakes-to-rear-exhaust with and without front fans, top-front and bottom intakes with rear and side exhaust, etc.), but that requires both more fans and work to give me a break long enough to set up a good test station.S@wyer
, what RAM did you get? The Samsung stuff is both awesome and extremely
low profile; it actually sits a shade lower than the locking tabs that keep it in place, so it might give you more tower heatsink flexibility.
