on top of that, all 3 of my fans have lowered RPM with 7v resistors...
I did however, take out the top portion of removable hard drive cage.
Good to know, I plan on taking out the top HDD cage as well.
Will need to do some noise testing, but plan on using my GT-AP15s in all slots w/o resistors, so I guess it should be dandy.

If you have a good exhaust fan then you shouldn't have any problems with heat.
Didn't know if I was just failing at Google, glad someone else can confirm there isn't an aftermarket blower design.
Define "good" exhaust fan, I currently have 3 options at home:
1650RPM/63CFM Corsair AF120 Performance
1850RMP/58CFM Scythe GT AP15
2000RMP/69CFM CoolerMaster Sickleflow
(or buy a 140mm since it has the mounts for it)
I'll have a P/P setup of the GTs on an air cooler, if that matters.
Strike the GT for exhaust, thought I had 5 or 6 but only have 4.
2 are going intake and 2 are going P/P on the cooler.
