And now nearing July I still need to upgrade the SSD C: boot drive. Clean installs, etc. I have been just working, letting the computer do what it does, and not thinking about computer builds. To pat myself on the back, my 2012ish build if not star ship in performance fit together very elegantly in the case. BUT there are generationS (plural) of new stuff out there.

I'd love to hear about forum members' 2017 dream builds for this irreplacable case. CPUs, MOBOs, GPUs, RAM......

I found these adapters for my 280 rad top fans. What they do is allow you to install a 140mm fan to a 120mm mount...

However, I'm probably going to custom loop one of these days.. and for easy mounting that will be 360mm radiator based.

I used one of these cases for years, but now it's just taking up space in my closet. If you want it, shoot me a PM. I love it but the Corsair 900D just has a slightly better design for rad mounting. My ATCS deserves a good home rather than dust and neglect.

Has anyone tried the Noctua NF-A20 200mm fans?

I'm not sure I've even seen them. Are they new? I have two Noctua 140mm and one Noctua 120mm fans in my ATCS 840 and they have been quiet and trouble free.

200mm Noctua fans might be good replacements for the stock front intake and top exhaust fans. I seem to recall they are nominally 230mm but only have 200mm blades. Do you think the Noctuas wold with without adapter brackets?

When I bought the case in 2011 I was concerned about replacing those large fans if they ever failed. I ordered two original CM fans as spares just in case. I don't think they are available any more.

Yes, they have 154x154mm and 170x170mm mounting holes, and I'm fairly sure that the 154mm would work. They are a little larger on the four corners than a normal 200/230mm fan because of the 170mm mounting holes, and they are a little thicker than normal fans, 30mm rather than 25mm.

I installed a Noctua NF-A20 fan in the front of my case. Using rubber mounts I had 1/8" clearance on the left side of the case, by the HDD cage.

I increased air flow to my front intake fan by increasing the standoff distance of the front plate.
(8) 6/32 x 1” Phillips tapered head stainless steel machine screws
(8) 1/4” OD, 3/4” length, aluminum spacers (#6 screw size)
electrical tape around the spacers, to keep things black
1/4" shorter would have been OK

I too have a Cooler Master ATCS 840 in need of a good home. It was purchased from FrozenCPU with soundproofing material on both sides and bottom. Along with a totally complete case, I have extra side panels (L&R) without soundproofing, motherboard and front panel grill.
