I'm looking to buy the CoolerMaster MasterCase 5. Here are the specs:
Size: ATX Mid Tower
Motherboard: Micro-ATX, ATX
Dimensions: 9.3 x 20.2 x 21.6 in
Radiator Support: Front: 280/240/140/120mm x 1 Rear: 140/120mm x 1
Fans Support Front: 140mm x 3 Rear: 140mm x 1 or 120mm x 1 Top: 140/120mm x 2

I have 4 120mm fans in my pc currently, 2 in front, 2 on top, and a 120mm liquid cooler in the rear. Would I be able to use these fans in this new case or do I have to buy new ones?
Also I have an i5 4690, a gtx970, and a Gigabyte Z97 D3H Mobo. I also have a CD drive as well as a 5 fan controller mounted under it. Just want to make sure that's the right case for all my parts.

The answer for me is Yes, because on the original websites it says FAN SUPPORT:

  • ■ Front: 120/140mm x3
    ■ Top: 120/140mm x2
    ■ Rear: 120/140mm x1

The Cooler Master Mastercase 5/Mastercase 5 PRO should already includes 3 fans as it shows on the diagram on the official website : http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower/mastercase-5/
I personally think if your fans are not enough old to be raplaced with the new ones and if you can still use them than I think there is no problem with that. If you are definitelly going for the Mastercase 5 than you will have to try out if all the fans fit in but I think you will even have 2-3 fans to spare. Btw do you really need so much fans? Just don't overcool your cpu ;) Good luck...

Thanks for the reply. The thing is my brother got me these cool Corsair LED fans for my birthday. He got two twin packs, so I just have 4 fans. I use negative pressure so yea, I kind of need that many fans. I am not replacing them due to age, I just don't know if I can actually mount them in the case, which would call for the purchase of new fans that fit, hence my original question.
