Thermaltake Core V71 Full-Tower Chassis http://www.thermalta...x?id=C_00002231 Experience the next generation of chassis design! Thermaltake has introduced a new concept for more versatility and ad

Nice build Drevni!    BTW did you paint the front panel white? looks quite cool

Core V71 pushes the envelope and utilizes a high-end water-cooling solution that feature front 360/420mm, top 360/420mm and bottom 120/240mm radiators to support extreme performance.

Got mine a few days ago in the mail and im really disappointed of this case i upgraded from a core v51 to the 71 due to the TG side panel and my v51 side panel got damaged couldn't find a replacement so i decided to upgrade after removing the drive bays i have a found a little defect i can care less aobut this minor defect it won't affect it at all but the power button is a huge issue Resized_20200807_174131.jpg.5c975c1e65f371333207961b7b9afe3c.jpg

also after removing all the case fans and disconnecting the wires from the fan controller i found out that the power button will not press unless the front cover is off so if i do put it together i won't be able to turn the PC on unless i remove the front cover did i receive a defective case ?

photo certainly looks like a refurbished/pre used case - not new!

yea i'm thinking its a refurbished case i purchased it from Amazon so they are sending in a replacement at no cost but the power button was really odd thing after i removed the HDD rack the drive bay for the extra room i noticed the flakes in the paint which that can happen from multiple reasons, after removing the fans and disconnecting them from the fan controller up top i did have to unscrew the little circuit board to remove the wire that was sitting under it and i placed it right back in its spot, i didn't honestly test the power button prior to that to see if it even presses in but after i put it back together i figured out that the button is not working, so after ordering a replacement i put everything back to where it was originally and the button still doesn't work so we will see when the replacement arrives, also while ordering this item there's no indication of the condition if NEW or USED / Refurbished, on the replacement order it does state that the condition of the case is NEW so we will see hopefully the replacement will be in a better condition  / new case arrived seems to be in a way better condition and the button works perfect now time to switch everything over to the new case

I'm about to build my first system, and to do so in my new Core V71!

I know nothing about fan control, and googling Guides/Tutorials didn't help much, so please help me.

I'm considering replacing all the stock fans and populating all fan positions with either fans, or an AIO (probably on the top; I know the AIO will come with it's own control solution).  
1.
I plan to prioritize function over aesthetics, so I wonder:
Does anyone know if 200mm Noctuas will fit in front (and top?)?
If not, will other 200mm options fit?  (A dozen years ago I had fit issues when trying to replace a stock 200mm fan on a TT case.)

2.
The manual says 
"Fan speed and light controller are only compatible with built in 200mm LED fans. To avoid on damaging the circuit board, please do not connect it with other fans."
Does this mean that I'll be using a separate fan-controller to control all my chosen fans (including those I replace the stock ones with), and that the case's fan controller and buttons must be useless to me?

3.
I've started looking at fan controllers.
Would it be a bad idea to (and can one?) use some kind of adapter to connect more than one fan to the same connection on a fan controller?

I'd like the share my answer to my (and others') question of whether a Noctua 200mm fan will fit in the TT Core V71.  (Ditto a 200mm BitFenix BFF-LPRO-23030B-RP I already had.)

Note than I only looked at this question WRT the front fans (sorry, I plan to put a radiator in the top).

For neither alternate 200mm fan is thickness an issue; while I'm not sure you can tell from the photos, I think both are exactly the same thickness as the stock TT 200mm fans.  This is important because the mesh filter is right up against the fans.

And mounting holes are not an issue for either alternative fan either; one of the sets of holes for each alternative fan matched the case holes.

However, the stock TT fan width is perfectly minimal to fit the case, and both alternative fans are wider, and would thus need to be modified to fit.

The Noctua fan's inner edge hole is all one would need; to fit inside the front panel attachments the rest of the four edge extensions would need to be cut off.  The plastic is hard and I think resilient.  

The BitFenix fan is nearly circled by holes; nearly all of them would need to be cut off the fan.  The plastic is hard but also I think brittle.

To complicate matters further, there's the manual warning about using other fans burning out the controller.  (Furthermore, when I owned a similar TT case a dozen years ago with only one front 200mm fan, I vaguely recall something I did wrong connecting it burned out the fan; I think I may have figured that out and got an alternate  replacement working.)

With all that, I don't think I'm going to deal with modifying alternative 200mm fans to fit the case in the short term.

The pictured Noctua is a Noctua NF-A20 PWM chromax.black.swap
