JackNaylorPE January 3, 2010 6:06:59 PM Your case specs say it comes with 3 fans....I don't see any "optional" fans which can be installed. One 90mm exhaust fan is kinda light ....and 90mm is a rare size so choices will be limited. http://www.azzausa.com/Product-Case-Orion201.asp I'd also skip the 250 GB per platter drive for a newer 500 GB per platter drive (Spinpoint f3 or Seagate 7200.12) Can't find your answer ?
