So that stupid lol you shouldn't have to move anything to make a fan fit. the bitfenix ones will fit without moving the cages permanently.

Also I'm not cutting my case to reduce noise, all I car about if airflow and temps.

Cut it pansy! It lowers noise a lot and increases airflow.

It was made to fit 20mm fans...not the 30mm megaflows lol

I'm not too keen on cutting it either, mainly because I don't have the proper tools at home and because I'm about as useful for these kind of practical things as Jeremy Clarkson (which is saying something biggrin.gif)

I had a Cosmos S case and it came with a non led 200 mm megaflow. I bought a second off Newegg back in early 2009. I just searched all the usual sites (newegg, fronzencpu, etc) and Cooler Master's website. It appears the non led version is only availabe through Cooler Master as a replacment part request. It isn't listed as a product anymore.

Perhaps the easiest way to go is the get the blue one and disconnect the leds.

Having installed a megaflow I can tell you it DOES require moving the hdd cage back by a minimum of 10mm if you mount the fan on the inside of the grill. The easiest thing to do is to move the cage to the second mounting location near the spu.

Fixed lol sorry I was confused. I will be moving my hdd cages there anyway when I get my front 200mm rad.

I also like CM's regular 120 mm fans (1100-1200 rpm) - decent air movers and pretty quiet. dirt cheap in 4 packs too.

Does Amazon have the Cooler Master Megaflow without LEDs? I searched and couldn't find it.
cm doesnt make those in non led.. i searched all over on their site and struck out..
only1 i found that has no led is the antec bigboy but its exp

I have the big boy, it doesn't make a huge difference in terms of cooling, I might have seen 1C in overall drop, and it's not worth it. I got it from an old Antec900.
