is it possible to install two 120x15 fans from the top-side? Or will cooling of the processor interfere?
A single slim will fit in front of the C14S, the power supply mounted to the front prohibits mounting a second slim to the side bracket. I did, however, mount the second slim to the right side as an exhaust. so now I have 6 fans total mounted in this case, lol, including the CPU fan. (2) Chromax 120mm under the GPU (w/the two incl. GPU fans) set to intake. The 120mm slim and 140mm CPU fans are set to blow at the PCB. The slim 120mm at the right side and the 92mm at the rear are set to exhaust. This configuration improved my temps 10c. the original set-up was the two intakes at the bottom and the 140mm CPU fan set to exhaust. Current temps at idle and under load with an overclocked 8700k and an overclocked 1070 - at idle w/fans set to silent mode - CPU 28c & GPU 32c, under load w/fans set to 60% - CPU 66c & GPU 43c, the ambient temp was 18.5c. Soon I will be swapping to a 3950x and an RTX4000... I'm hoping to be able to stick with air cooling...fingers crossed.

Please tell me how you connected all the fans? On mini-ITX motherboards, I have not seen more than 3x 4pin connectors ... How do I connect fans?

And you have a different location for the power unit. I saw in the video at 7 minutes that the unit is different, which allows you to put a second fan on the side, next to the slim fan, which is located above the CPU heatsink. I would like to know, and if I put a 25mm fan, then will my 43mm RAM fit in?

he replaced the 140mm fan with a 120mm fan on the C14, I prefer using the 140mm but either way will work.

What is your RAM height? I have 43mm and it is important for me to know whether the 43mm high RAM will fit in along with a 120x25 fan?

my RAM is 42mm G.Skill Ripjaws V Series and it fits with about 3/16" to spare, 43mm should be fine.

It turns out a 25mm fan will fit together with a height of 40mm RAM? I was wrong when I said that I have 43mm height. It turns out 40. I just sit and think which fan to take to cool the processor: 120x25 or 120x15. 120x25 is certainly better, but will an 40mm high RAM fit under it ...

yes, I have a 140x25 fan and 42mm RAM. plenty of room with the C14S w/25mm thick fan and 40mm - 45mm RAM

I have the C14, fits trident Z with 25mm fan underneath, the fan does make contact with ram. But fits fine.

Ordered, along with a Left angle power cable (the case comes with a Right angle one). I figured, get the other power cable while it's available, just in case.
