Ha Ha, I found it funny too.

Although, I removed mine from the stock positon and will be mounting it up front for easier access. I use that rear hole where the button once was to pass the wires of my exterior 120mm fans (attached to a rear/external radiator) into the case, thus allowing easy access to connect to the case's fan controller.

Fan? Which model? Are you talking about the FS 200LED

If so, it has the same specs as the fan that came with the case - which others here and myself have tested and it doesn't move that much air (The 89CFM they state is over rated). The plus side is it is very silent at high speed, but there are other fans that put out more air at quiet db's too. NZXT also has a high speed FN 200RB which moves more air, but it gets very loud.

Just an FYI as I've tried all NZXT's 120, 140 and 200mm fans. Of course, if you're just going for looks and don't need it for more cooling then it will work fine and cool better than no fan on the side at all.

H'okay... So I completed my build, and I will edit this post with pics later. It looks fantastic, the only thing is that the spring loaded thumb screw on one of the panels, broke.... The first time I tried it, the other one is still fine, will NZXT ship out replacements of those? (the plastic part that houses the spring)

mine came with (checks) just kidding it only came with like 50 extra normal thumb screws. but nzxt has great customer support. it may take a day or two but they will get back to you eventually. they should put in like 5 extra spring loaded screws bc i would think they would be easiest to break.

yea i'm talking about the fs200led. and what would you recommend thats led? yes i noticed the top fan isn't that great... and i'm doing this for looks but also would like to keep my gpu cool because i'm going to overclock it which will make a lot more heat.

Yes, just contact NZXT support. If you have a copy of your receipt or invoice then they should ship you a replacement part for free (depending on where you live).

Well try putting the top 200mm fan on the door and see if you notice a temp. change on your CPU reading. That will give you an idea of what to expect with the LED version. Also see if it helps any with your 6950 temps as well.

but what reccomendations do you have for a high cfm led side fan that isn't terribly loud. or if there aren't any good led ones a non led one.
