Hey there this is my first post here, but i'll give it my best shot :) 

I've spend the last few of weeks, searching the web to figure out what parts i will be using for my new gaming PC build.
I have figured out everything for my rig so far, except which 140mm exhaust fan i should get. I am using a 'Corsair Obsidian 650D' case, and i want to use a black/red color theme with red LED lights.

Here is a pic of how i want to set up my build (except for the hard drive cage which will be totally removed). http://www.flickr.com/photos/63823341@N07/6777750345/
The front and top 200mm fans in the picture are going to be 'Cooler Master Megaflow - red LEDs', but i was wondering which 140mm fan i should get in the back. I want it to be a red LED fan as well, and i want it to push a decent amount of air. It does not have to be silent, but it shouldnt be too loud either (if you know what i mean).

I looked around and found the 'NZXT FZ 140mm - red LED fan' - http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/115-fz-140mm-led-cas... - but i am pretty sure that it wont fit in my case without modding. But if anyone knows if it fits i would be glad to know.

Thank you :)

i dont really recomment nzxt fan, not worth the price and performance, u can get better with those money
but it up to u

and why would it not fit without modding? if it is 140mm fan mount then it can surely fit 140mm fan
theres alot of red fan, Cm, enermax, silverstone, corsair

take a look at enermax tb vegas, maybe u like it

i using a cm 120mm red led fan, it good, for exhaust fan u dont need to make it pulling air to fast, 900-1200 rpm is fine(40-60 cfm)

most 140mm led fan will does the job for u

Hey thanks for the reply.
Well because I've heard that nzxt fans won't fit for most other cases than nzxt cases. I know that the 200mm fan from nzxt won't fit with the mounting holes in the 650D.

I checked out the fans you talked about, and the vegas ones look fine as hell! I think I am going for the 'Enermax Apollish Vegas 140mm Red fan', not the duo though, because i will only need the red color :)  Here's a link http://www.enermax.com/home.php?fn=eng/product_a1_1_1&l...
So I now decided to get
- 1 CM megaflow 200mm in the front (Intake).
- 2 Apollish vegas 140mm in the top (1 top/front Intake in front of the heatsink and 1 top/rear exhaust).
- 1 Apollish vegas 140mm in the back (exhaust).
If my gtx 690 still will get too hot i'm considering to add an internal '120mm cooler master jet flo red led' pointing at the card.

u if u get the duo, there are 14 or 12 dif mode u can change, it come with a button to do so

Because my computer will have a black/red and a little white only theme, to keep things simple.
But if it's about the same price, then i might buy the multicoloured one :) 
Thanks for the help, i appreciate it
