Yes it fits, I wish I could get you the link but I made a list of all TI's that fit through a lot of research. I believe you can mount it top right or front right depending on your setup (looking in through the window)
Hybrid is basically a Reference card with some tubes sticking out, you can bend them enough, it might be on the window a little bit but it should fit.

If anyone else is interested in the list here it is.

Thanks, had to do some minor case mods with my dremel to get the RX to fit, the rad fan holes didn't line up with the case ones and I had to create extra clearance at the top of the case for the rad top fill ports. Happy with the result though, low resistance rad means only need to run push fan configuration. The Res fitted below the SSD drive cage as well!

Disregard this, i've found a D5 pump/res that'll do the job...

Hi All.. Noob here.. After a good 5 years without a PC, ive sourced some parts and built myself a moderate Gaming PC.... With what I think is the best looking case on the market!

Photos to come.. I did have two questions though.

1. Did anyone have trouble with the front panel connectors (pw switch, reset etc)?? I had crazy problems during my build (and still do if I play around with things) - Where my PC would power up for a second, then die... After much troubleshooting, I'm thinking its a short somewhere - Something is causing the PSU to cut... So, I removed the HDD LED and PW LED - and what do you know - The PC powers up fine..
Strange..

2. With the space in the rear for the 80mm fans - Is it OK to have ONLY intake fans? - ie, two at the front and one at the top.... So the three fans push air into the case, and its forced out the back?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, you should be fine with intake only. Just remember to put somethin in the lower compartment for the HDD's too. Thy get very hot in there, if they have no airflow.
Isnt that L9i a bit too small for the 4790?

The side compartment? PSU, cables etc? - Yeah I'm only running SSDs.. So hopefully wont get too hot.

Seems to do alright.. I pushed the CPU a little.. It certainly looks to perform better than the stock cooler.. And.. I know this is an OC forum.. But I deliberately got the standard 4790 (not K) So I wouldn't overclock.. Just wanted this to be a standard build for gaming.

when benching, my 3 WD Reds used to heat up a lot in the rear 3.5" cage. I've fitted a 60mm fan just inside the rear vent panel which draws cool air in from the back and across the drives. Works a treat, 60mm fan fits OK, I mounted using the rubber fan isolation mounts.
