Mine doesn't. It's not a good case for liquid cooling anyway, there isn't much room inside.

You won't need more than that, though a nice side fan may be good if you can get hold of a quiet one.

Its best to have the fans built into the case on low, all except for the top which is better at medium or high.
The 120mm ones are way to loud for my tastes at medium or full, but at low, they move quite a bit of air anyway, and are pretty quiet indeed.
Wow I just looked at my build and it is identical to your build lol.

These pics are old, I moved the 8800GTS back to the top PCIE slot because I was getting a weird FPS issue with it in the second slot.

Let me say that the case is hard to wire out of the box. The latest revision adds a couple of holes next to the drive cages, so that will help a little bit. I cut out some holes to help with the wire management, and it helped a ton. If you are willing to get into modding this case if you get it, look at this thread:

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=126395

Also I ordered a drive cage so I could run 3 120MM fans on the front, it only comes with 2 from the factory. If you do this, you will have to get an external CD drive or buy a external case for the one you have.

Edit: The only problem that I have with the PSU at the bottom is it's harder to hide wires. Some people cut a hole below it and flip the PSU, but I'm not sure if I want to do that, since it's harder for it to get air from such a small space unless you raise the case. Then it looks goofy IMO.

The red glow is from a red CCFL tube.
