Interesting note. If you change a radiator fan and then fire up the furmark 4k gpu stress test to see how well it performs, on a z97, 4790k, GTX1080, 32GB ram, 1HDD, 1SSD, dual AIO cooled system with 2 23" screens, a 1100VA (770W) UPS will crap its pants.

That is why I won't use that case, or anything from NZXT really. It makes no sense to me to have a spot for a radiator and not enough area to pull air from.
To be fair, the case would have worked brilliantly with just a couple of fans for intake in the front, and a 120 or 140 rad for the CPU exhausting out the top, and an exhaust fan in the rear. However I got a dual-fan rad, so it had to go in the front half due to poor planning on my part, and half due to "why the heck wouldn't they put a double-sized grill on the top for dual-fan rads on the top?".

The Corsair 600T I use has room for a double 120 or single 200 at the top, single 200 at the front and single 120 at the back. If I went with a custom loop, I don't think I'd be able to do it with a single radiator, but luckily 200mm rads do exist.
