1. How would a Silver Arrow fit in an Azza Hurrican 2000 case? Newegg says its 10" wide, but I'm not sure if that's including the fan housing on the side or not.
2. Is there anywhere to buy the original, non SB-E version of the Silver Arrow? I much prefer the blue fans (fits the black and blue theme of my build better), and I think they might perform better (but I'm not sure).
1. More than likely it includes the fan housing portion of the side panel. The Corsair 600T has similar specs with a similar side panel and the SA fits that case just fine. As long as those fans are not 30mm you'll probably be ok.
2. Performance of all TR's TY series fans will always ultimately depend on your case airflow and ambient temp and not just max CFM/RPM specs. I'm not sure if the SB-E is going to replace the SA or not. I've email TR but they have yet to respond.

Its dusty and I'm off to Fry's to buy some compressed air and look at the CM and Nzxt 200mm fans. Sorry for the double post but traffic was lite this weekend
edit: picked up a couple of CM "Mega Flow" 200mm fans. Their air flow is rated at 110cfm @700rpm, yet they blow quite a bit less air compared to the stock Xigmatek fan (74 cfm @ 700rpm). Ugh, typical Cooler Master inflation of specs. I'm going to return them and try the NZXT 200mm fan
Megaflows are ok. NZXT 200mm fans have gotten mixed reviews in the 650D thread. I went with Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm and love it. I'd definitely give it a shot. What I really wish would happen is a TR or Phanteks 200mm fan!
If you have a wrench set see if any of those will fit the SA bolt or take it to the hardware store and match it up that way...probably metric?
