I really like that case, the one thing that ruins it for me is the layout of the front I/O panel - it just looks like they couldn't be bothered trying to make it neat and just slappped them on in any order. It's a shame, but not necessarily a deal breaker

I like the dedicated h100 space, i was toying with the 650d or raven 3, but this is now my choice vs a raven 3!

the Raven 3 would probably be better for air cooling with the 2 turbo penetrator fans but if you plan on using a H100 it wouldn't really matter I guess.

The Cosair webpage says 6x 120/140 fans. if you look close you can see what looks like holes just past the rubber grommets they could be the screw holes for the 140 mm fan ?

Yeah that's what I thought :) prob just an oversight on the reviewers part. Not a massive issue granted, but nice to have quieter 140mm fans in the roof if needed.
