and can confirm.. can't get 2 3x140mm trays in the front or the top.
Thanks for the confirmation on the trays there. You do raise a good point. I decided to add up the CFM of the 8 LL series fans I'm eyeing vs 3 of the 140mms and yeah it's more than double going with the 8. I also hadn't considered the sheer volume of the innards of that case. lol Probably explains why I've had a hard time finding examples online of the 1000D being used with a 3x140mm on the front configuration.

Never thought I'd see the day where I'd be spending over $400 just in fans for a case. R.I.P. my bank account. lol

Thank you again for your input. ^_^

well... lol.. its not like a need to run the fans at silly speeds.. but yes... lots of fans does equal a bit more wind noise than normal.

as for dust. all my intakes are filtered. i only have the 2 rears as exhaust. so dust is at a minimum
