I modded the back one, and your right it doesnt come with the 140 fan openings, but, you can buy them as well as others for this case. I have three of them, one for summer and another for winter and of course the one that comes with it. It is an example of what can be done with this case.
They can be bought here:http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...4823195affae06

Edit: Yes they do have the leds, they are on the top right by the power button.

I just checked that link out, they surely don't come that cheaply though IMO.

The panel with the 140's have gone up since I got my. The other panel was just 28.00, still I like them and it was worth the money to me.

Hmm, very nice. You have a similar GPU as well as H50, and looks like a fan controller and one optical drive. I have 3 hard drives, but a lot of the same stuff in your rig will be going into mine. Thanks for posting pics!

After looking at video reviews, tons of pictures and reading as many reviews as I can for the CM 690 II, Corsair 600T and Lancool K62, I'm still leaning towards the Lancool. My only real concern is temp increase.

I currently have my H50 set as intake via the back fan, with the 2 UK3K's in push/pull with one shroud on the outer fan. With the Antec 900's massive top fan pulling any heat out, I'm pretty sure the Lancool's dual 140MM fans will do a good job as well.

I have the two front fans pulling in as well as the side fan as intake. While I'm pretty sure I can pop another 140MM fan as intake on the front of the Lancool, with the clear side panel (I really like the idea of just having a clear window with nothing attached to it) I'm worried my GPU temps might go up some. Right now I'm idling at 40c or so, and under load it never gets above 70c, and usually around 64c max.

So will the fact of being able to flip my PSU as well help with better airflow in the Lancool? Are the 200MM fans in the 600T good enough to keep my temps down? I like the 690 II but not happy with the amount of fans it comes with, or the inability to put two 120MM's in the front, only the one 140MM or two 80MM's.

Grr, this is so difficult. I wish I had a computer shop in my area I could go and look at the cases in person.

There's a Micro Center maybe not too far from you and you'll be able to see at least "some" cases.

You can get to the Wayne area by Septa where that store is.

I've been on Route 30 myself but never to that store.

Maybe the Phillies will win this coming Baseball season.

I'm not even attempting a Septa trip just to look at cases. Yeah, it'd be nice, but not worth the trip. Guess I should have stated that I was something was 'close' to me.
