thanks for the great tips! if i get a chance today i will measure the distance for you guys. I was planning on buying some coolermaster 120mm fans (2000rpm, 90CFM) and getting rid of the standard thermaltake fan on the rear exhaust and installing the CM fans on the front intake, bottom intake and forward top. I also wanted to have a push/pull arrangement for the hyper to further increase cooling power.
If i buy the same fan that comes with the hyper 212 plus (blade master i believe) can i run both of the cooler fans from the motherboard? I want to do this so i can control both of their speeds when the pc is on. Do i need some sort of cable splitter?

Check out item 1 in my sig for comparisons between the Blade Master and the R4. But I use much quieter fans for my own case fans: Gentle Typhoon AP-12 and AP-13, Kaze Maru 500rpm and 1200rpm. The Slip Stream 140's were not available when I set this up; I'd recommend the 800rpm and the 1200rpm.

For combining fans, watch the combined current draw. With Gigabyte fan headers the limit is 1 Amp. With As.s fan headers, 2 Amps. I recommend this Y-cable because it is extremely durable: mine has come through over 4oo fan changes and is still going strong. Free shipping is nice, too. Do cut one of the yellow wires or your mb will report the combined signals from both fans.
