Default Question about this Sunbeam case

Newegg.com - Sunbeam Transformer IC-TR-US-BK Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case 450W Power Supply - Retail

In the specs list, it mentions 80mm and 120mm fan options but doesn't say if they're included or not, nor do any of the product pics hint as to whether or not the fans are included. Does anyone know?

I would hate to buy the case only to find out that it didn't inclade fans and have to wait another 3-4 days (to order the fans and have them delivered) before being able to install anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I just used that sunbeam case.

IT RULES.

very sturdy. great lights.. yes. it rules. Comes with a sweet green cathode that mounts behind the front open area as well.

The case comes with 3 80mm fans, all blue LED. The rear 120 is NOT led AND there is room (if you take the front panel off, you'll see it) for a front 120mm fan.

this case is good for wire management too.

I'm definitly using it when i rebuild mine and maybe some other's here and there. Awesome price for a great case. (in this pic, the rear is blue led because i bought a TT one. I think it'd look cool to have the front 120mm blue led too. (it's right beind the green cathode). It'd make for some nice contrast )


EDIT: 5 80mm fans? wtf? But yeah, beside from it being awesome, it is very loud. And it's not ugly. lol.. this thing looks great.

Ok aside from looking sweet, it is incredibly loud and the case is no good.

i really don't mind sound at all. I don't like things being quite.

I hate when people generalize stuff.

"OH! the case is loud. It must suck in every other category as well"

If you don't mind noise, get the case.

Lol @ that xclio...things are massive. But i really don't like how it looks =/

Lol that xclio looks like a jet engine. The sunbeam looks okay, but 80mm fans, come on. The cooler master looks sweet and has a good price.

OK well it's still going to be a while before I order all the parts for my new comp but thanks for all of your suggestions. As far as the noise goes.... is that during load, or all the time?

If you don't like the noise, there's always the option of getting quieter fans, or fan controllers.

yup
the reason those 80mm's are so loud is because they move a TON of air.
