I'm getting conflicting fan size specs. for this case. If you have one, could you please tell me what size fan openings you have. THe Addtronics site lists the specs as (4)8X8 (1)9X9 and (1) 12X12cm. Some retailer sites list the sizes as (5)8X8 and (1)6X6. THe same goes for the online reviews, they all differ as well.
Please help if you can . Thanks

I just saw that website that you were talking about with the conflicting fan sizes. My case is exactly what the Addtronics site lists (but I know what you are saying about the picture; it's a little confusing). Here is what I have:

1)Front: 120mm intake, optional 80mm intake if you don't use the hidden 3.5 drive bays
2) Back: 92mm outtake
3)Drive bay: 2-80mm fans (one on each side of course)
4)Chipset cooler: 80mm fan

That makes 4-80mm, 1-120mm, and 1-92mm.

I'm not too sure about the other site; they have definitely modded the case with the blowholes so they may have modded the stock fan sizes also.

Hope this helps.

Last post is correct but I am using the hidden 3.5 bays and have an 80mm intake. It is meant to help cool the hidden bays !
I have a 109cfm 120mm sunon intake and 39cfm 80mm intake in the front, a 92mm 60cfm sunon in the back and I put a 120mm blowhole on the top. The 120mm that comes free is ok, but I thought it was better for the blowhole and not the intake. The case temp stays within 1c of ambient room temp.
Don't bother with the side fans , they suck ( no pun intended) !
If you use the 120mm and 80mm intakes, consider the blow hole or a slot fan to aid in exhaust. The 92mm and ps fan will not be able to handle the intake and you will get negative airflow.

I ordered the case from this site, not realizing they had different fan specs. I'm trying to get ahold of them to clear this matter up. I don't want the case if it has the smaller fan dimensions.
Thank you for the responses. :)

Here's the reply I received from the retailer


"Don't worry, we apparently have the "old" specs on our website in error. The cases that we sell (and the type you will receive) will be the newer updated version just like the one in the article you cited. I will forward your email to our webmaster so he can make the appropriate changes to the specs on our website".

There it is. The article I cited was from http://www.tweak3d.net/reviews/addtronics/6896a/

THe case will come with the larger fans. :) :)
