You should remove the HDD cage if you're not using it to improve airflow or add a fan there to blow air upwards.

Indeed, the fan issue is quite a nuisance. But noentheless, I ended up with a H50 rather than a typical HSF to install the side 200mm fan. Works great :) .

I've still got some stuff to do. I still await my fan clips for my TRUE at which point I'll be changing it's orientation and going push-pull. Now that I know what size/style the LED's are, I'll be swapping them out, I'm not sure if I should go red or green yet though. And I've been working on a custom applique which should look pretty dam good.

I sent an email to NZXT twice asking about if those fans are 200mm, they have still yet to get back to me.

They are indeed 192mm. People tried installing 200mm Coolermaster/Xigmatek fans but they were too large. Anyhow, I just bought an NZXT fan anyway. It's too loud at full blast and needs to be run with the controller.

I gave mine away since I was never going to use it. Time to re-orientate my TRUE tonight and go push pull, swap out the door fans and put the side filter in the top.

I can rotate a TRUE without having to rotate the backplate too can't I?
