Yes, the CM Megaflow will fit, however if you want to place the hdd rack behind it you will have to mod that because the CM is 30mm thick while the standard Corsair fan is only 20mm.
And yes again, 140mm fans fit. Holes for 120/140 and 200 are pre-drilled.

Just got this case, pretty dissapointed by how loud it is, even on low speed. I also noticed the clicking sound you guys were talking about with the front fan. Got two low speed white LED Yates in the roof, not sure what to do about front fan, might remove it completely.

Although I got it for only $130, so I guess I can't complain too much lol

I just purchased the 650d myself.
Unfortunately it's not the revised one.

Anyone has any idea on how I should contact corsair in Europe in order to get the revised replacement fan controller kit?

Those who wanna buy this case, be ready to buy some new fans (have put myself like 60 euros to fans, 3x Gentle Typhoon and 180mm Air Penetrator. Anyway one last picture from my system, just swapped cooler (had Silver Arrow previously).

I was able to use this link to order the adapter kit and that was delivery to the UK. If you select the slower mail delivery option the delivery fee also drops to zero. I still got mine within a few days so it was great service by Corsair.

I must say even with the fix I still found the inbuilt fan controller rather poor and have since got a Scythe replacement.

Try making your two top 140mm fans as intake. I bet you will see a change in temps. You may need a dust filter or two though.

My roommate is using this case with stock fans. He's quite happy with it.

Idle temps dropped like 3 celsius, and load temps dropped 1-2c across the cores. I didnt thought this would be upgrade Maybe its much more optimal in this case.

Found a pretty easy ghetto-mod to make the case silent with stock fans. I just used some wire to connect the fan controller to 5V (red) part of Molex instead of 12V (yellow). Then taped it up lol

Suprisingly the fans will run off of as little as 3.3V according to my DMM with the fan controller at low speed. With it on high speed its still silent.

Of course the obvious consequence is that airflow is going to be greatly reduced, my OC'ed 955 is flaming out lol, so not so great for hot-running rigs.

Tried for a few hours, only 1C difference in stress test and normal/idle. I think it could be my heatsink.
