My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere - search results turned up nothing.

Does CP carry the HAF X Blue Edition (blue LEDs instead of red)?  Also, with the stock configuration from CP on the case, how many 200mm fan slots are left empty? 

I know that the rear fan location is 140mm and not 200mm, and I believe the side fan is 120mm and not 200mm?  But from what I have read, it is possible to fit 200mm fans in every location other than the rear.  Is this correct?

HAF X comes with 1 200mm side fan , 1 200mm top fan, 1 140 rear fan, 1-230mm front red led fan with switch for the led. The 200mm fans with fit in the front but no switch, will be on all the time if you get replacements. I replaced all mine with blue 200mm , got them from amazon.  You can also add 1 120 fan in the vga duct and 80mm in the vga support holder

We don't carry the blue LED HAF-X.  With the HAF-X the only empty fan slot will be one from the top.  The other top fan slot will be occupied.  You can fit a 200mm fan for every slot aside from the rear.

Thanks for the response!

The Megaflows from Amazon are $4 cheaper than those from Newegg, thank you for pointing that out!

I couldn't tell from the pictures on here or on newegg, but are the VGA duct fan and the side fan the same location?  In other words, do I mount a 200mm side fan and then add a 120mm duct fan right in front of that, above the VGA?

I guess with the way that this case is configured, it's counter-intuitive to add on the "extra case fan upgrade" on the order, eh?  I mean, the 200s should run quieter while moving nearly the same amount of air (depending on the fans used, of course) that 2x 120 would do.

What would either of you (or anyone else) recommend for 120mm and 140mm blue led fans?  I'd like to do a push/pull configuration with blue LED fans on the Corsair H60 cooling unit, and am debating on whether or not to replace the 140mm rear fan with either a blue LED fan or a clear-blade fan (so that it just reflects the light from inside the case already).

The rear of the case points towards the living room...my wife might murder me if she has to turn around to throw something at me while watching her favorite TV shows because of a blue beam of light glaring off of the television ;-)

The side fan duct, vga air duct and the vga holder are 3 differant things.

Ahh, I see now.  I was a little confused by the terminology (to me, the "duct" was the rubber deal on the inside of the side panel with the 200mm fan).

Cleared it all up, thanks!
