With a 360 in front , it will wipe out are your drive space. the ssd could go anywhere so thats not the problem. Heck even velcro it to the Back side so its completely hidden. But 4 Spinners... Hmmm Heres a Pic to help you maybe. 420 top 240 bottom.. Now you could put your 360 in the Bottom here and just cut out a hole for the 3rd fan in the bottom and have the 420 top mounted. Thats if you have some way of modding in that hole. That way you could keep room for your spinners.. or if you stick to your plan you will have to get creative with mounting a cage for the Drives/ GOOD LUCK

thanks for your answer. it make sense. is there enough space in your rig for modular psu cables to pass through between psu and 240 radiator.
can i hang one of these hdd cages to the front of the roof in the place of 120mm fan smile.gif

I have zero room to move that 240 with a 2 pumps and drain fitting behind it. So modular Psu would not work for me.

not sure what you mean by front of the Roof.

This Area?

Are you into the 5.25 bay at that point or ..no. I really just eyeballed about 16inches from bottom up the Rail. looks like there is a little room left

A GTX 360 did fit with a few cm(s) of space. The Monsta 360 will barely squeeze in there with mm to spare. I measured a few times. Only challenge was displacing the odd (external usb 3.0 setup now) and the fan controller (hacked a bit and squeezed in between the hdd cage, yes it works biggrin.gif).

It works well but the nickel plating is very bad. It has me pretty concerned. Its too bad since with acetal end caps it would be the perfect res for me.
