Default Fractal Design Array R2 mini-ITX NAS Chassis Review

With mass storage being available at reasonable prices, the desire to build home servers, NAS boxes and so forth has never been stronger. Some might choose the pre-built NAS route, but for those pro-DIY, Fractal Design has its Array R2. Interested in a mini-ITX chassis that can support up to 6 hard drives and 1 SSD? Read on.

Read through Greg's full look at Fractal's Array R2 mini-ITX chassis and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

Nice review, but I have just a few questions that didn't seem answered in the review...

How about the noise levels of the built-in fans (PSU and 140mm)?
How much clearance above the CPU for a heatsink/fan before it hits the PSU?
