Cool! I didn't notice that detail, so we don't have to buy anymore the clips for the 120mm fan, it always annoyed me that the fan was loose because the clips are not intended for the c14s. Are there any inconveniences of installing the PSU in that position? Other than the fact that will pulling air from the inside of the case?

I'll take air being pulled in from inside the case and exhaust exiting the top over vice versa. With the psu pushed further forward in V6 it should help the PSU from sucking in hot air from the cpu heatsink. I plan to have the side, bottom, and top(passive) as exhaust while the rear is an intake.

with the compatibility for mini DTX, is it possible to put a 240 radiator on the bottom with a mini DTX?

I am pretty sure you will run into issues if you try to install a 240mm rad(even the 20mm) with slim fans and the x570 board. It looks like you will have issues with the Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Impact.

Good point, I was planning to do the same!

That's a good description of the small changes you had to make to fit two 140 mm fans. What fans did you use?

I found that using rounder 140 mm fans that have the same mounting holes as 120 mm fans to be a lot easier. These types of fans are available from Noctua, Phanteks, and Thermaltake.
Thanks.
I went with a set of 140mm Rosewill fans, specifically the fluid dynamic bearing variant and while they flow a little less than an equivalent Noctua they're silent (below 50% or so) and cost about a quarter of what Noctuas do.

My CPU dropped 6c at idle due to more air flowing around the card, psu temps and system temps also dropped.
My gpu temps on the other hand went up 2c compared to the old Cooler Master 120's I had but that could be due the fan centers shifting or I may just have them spinning too slow. I've been too busy to be bothered so far.

They're updating the site guys. Not gonna lie, I died a little when I saw them remove the TG window option.

Do we know if the back panel has the extended ventilation holes?

Edit 1: Just saw the price go to $205. Still a bargain imo.

Edit 2: $210 now. I think they're trolling me.

@Necere said there would be one but that his Partner (the guy who runs SFFLAB, cant remember is name right now) was handling it and that it would be available at launch, its a seperate product that ships seperatly so not too worrying that the détails are not up yet, migth still be able to buy it before the v6 ships.

Rear panel has been updated for added ventiliation and both panels have the same added ventiliation holes.
