notfordmanOn the bright side, those are some nice cuts Haywire! It does seem to be easier to find quality fans in the 140 & 120 size. If you could put up with the ugly, Noctua makes some nice [200mm] fans. https://noctua.at/en/products/fanhttp://www.performance-pcs.com/jumbo-170-to-360mm-fans/shopby/fan-size--200mm/?limit=90^^ some on sale.
Cool GTX If you'd like to mod the case - 1) drill out the pop-rivets and make a new face plate is always an option2) Cut out a rectangle pattern and make a removable "platform" with the desired fan placement 3) - High CFM fans that work well at a less than full speed are an easier optionI had to snip much metal from a Corsair 760T for the 140s to have a clear shot (30% blocked by factory 120 or 140 design) (stock photo* shows that much of the left & right side of 140 fans is baffeled by the projecting fan mounting design) (*Corsair site in link above) Lucky for me the front grill hides my work as I wanted to get back to Folding quickly
HaywireHaywoodThanks for the compliments. I used a dremel with the flexible wand, a cutoff wheel, and a drum sander to clean up the edges.
Cool GTXYou did a very nice job cutting your case It sure beats tin snips or a hand nibbler -- (ask me how I know / been there done that) You could if need be make adapters to mount smaller fans in the future
