Default Coolermaster CM 690

Does it include the front and rear fans? or would I need to buy them seperately?

Also note that the front 120mm fan is a blue LED fan.

Guys I just bought a 690 and it's onroute. I was wondering if you can fit a 80mm fan behind the mobo if you use a bolt through kit. I read somewhere the space is pretty tight and it can only fit a 15mm thick fan in there. I was hoping to have an exhaust there or maybe an intake. whichever is best I suppose.

bolt through will play no role in that area at all.

the only fan that will fit in that spot is a 80x15mm fan.
