Corsair 200R or 300R? The number of 3.5 inch drive bays aren't as much as the Shinobi.

I don't know about the 300r but the 200r does not support 140mm radiators.

I just read the specs off the site. Corsair stated there's 5 x 140mm mount points, that's why I included it in my suggestion. I have a 300R and there are 2 top fan mount that looks like 140mm.

What about the CM 690 II? ( Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced ATX Mid Tower Case Black 4X5.25 1X3.5EXT 6X3.5INT *No PSU* )

I'd get confirmation from somebody who actually owns one, but that writeup seems to suggest that it'll take 2X140mm fans up top.

Ah. I have the 200r. The top 2 140mm fan mounts will not fit a radiator AND fan. There is only enough room for 1 of them. :(

Looking in my case right now it's odd they mention 5x 140mm fan mounts. The front 2 fans will not take a 140mm fan nor will the rear fan mount. It looks like the only other place to mount a 140mm is on the floor in front of the power supply. It should be listed as 3x 140mm fan mounts.
