Hi Groxxy
yes you can install them on your case , remember positive air pressure is best , more intake fans than exhaust fans , this will mean less dust in your case

Do you know where abouts?
Also how do I know if it is an intake or an exhaust? Haha

Okay cheers. Hopefully a 120mm fan will fit.
Do you have this case?
Or just know about it?

intake are fans that draw air into your case from outside , exhaust are fans that blow air from inside your case to outside

according to your case specs this is what you have

FRONT, 1 X 140mm
REAR, 1 X 120mm (included)
SIDE, 2 x 120mm, 1 x 200/230 (2 x 120mm included)
TOP, 2 X 200mm (1 x LED 200mm included)

the rear 120mm will be exhaust
the top 200mm will be exhaust
the side can have either 2x120mm fans which is what i thought you were talking about replacing or 1x200mm fan or 1x230mm fan this should be intake
the front has 1x140mm fan which should be intake

you have positive air pressure so that will reduce dust intake
intake or exhaust is determined by which way the fan is facing , either sucking in air ( intake ) or Blowing out air ( exhaust )

i dont have it , but friends who do , it is a nice case. if the 120 does not fit , i would suggest you get a 140mm and put it in there , although not essential it will help with airflow in your case

does your case have the front 140mm fan ? , you may be able to use one of the 120's in there , not sure if you have the option for a 120mm or 140mm fan in the front

Yeah I just bought the NZXT fan so that it will fit in with the fan controller.
It's odd that the controller features a part for the front fan but does not actually include it

No front fan and I heard you could I just see no way of actually getting it in there :/
