ok so I've decided to get this case with my Build.. But it says it takes ;
1 x 230mm front red LED fan
1 x 230mm top fan
1 x 230mm side fan
But its compatible with
Front: 230 x 30 mm red LED fan x 1, 700 RPM, 110 CFM, 19 dBA
Side: 230 x 30 mm standard fan x 1, 700 RPM, 110 CFM, 19 dBA (support 120 x 25 fan x 4)
Top: 230 x 30 mm standard fan x 1, 700 RPM, 110 CFM, 19 dBA (support 120 mm fan x 3 or 120 mm x 1 + 230 x 30 mm x 1)
Rear: 140 x 25 mm standard fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 60 CFM, 17 dBA (support 120 mm fan x 1), 35,000 hours life expectancy
Ok.. So explain this if you will.. for the Front it HAS to be 230mm.. The side can have 4 - 120mm fans.. the Top can have 3 - 120mm fans or 1- 120mm + 230mm fan.. and back just 1 120mm or 140mm?
I can't find ANY 230mm fans on newegg.. Am i just overlooking something?? It seems like it would be a lot better if i were to just get the big ones instead of alot of small ones.. ( Less noise maby, and looks ).. I'm really wanting to get the green glow going on but i can just get the Cathodes so i Dont HAVE to have the fans green.. Any Cheapish suggestions for fans for this beast of a case?
you run the 200mm fans in the case.Cooler master website doesnt list 230's,only 200mm fans.I believe Bitfenix has 230mm fans,but the 200mm are the replacement fans for the 932.They mount directly to the 932 holes.
off cooler master forums
"They only reason they are considered 230mm is because one set of sides are wider than the other thereby making them 230 x 200, they are the same fan just redesigned"
Fantastic.. Thanks a ton guys.. I wanted to make sure before i started ordering stuff.. I was thinking i would prolly just replace the front one with a green LED fan.. Or just a regular one and get a Green cathode. We'll see.. I just want to go the green route. I hardly ever see green glowing cases.
