What is the interior width this case? Inside to inside. I am hoping it is at least 8".

Chris, what you should do is cut a hole in the side rail on the right side of the case so you can run cables in that wasted area. I circled in red where you could place a hole for hideing cables.This area on the side is a great place to hide cables.This area of any case is overlooked for cable management by all case makers.If we had better access to it and a drive cage we could turn sideways,we could attach hard drives power and sata connection and it would help clean up the case and better air flow.

i have been looking at that, now that i have swoped the m/b tray round, there isnt much room with the tray, but i might cut a few slots into it. also ive put the power supply in the front h/d bays, so most of the cables will connect direct to m/d or the front bays.

Chris, I am convinced that people who design PC case's are not computer builders like us. Cable management is a huge factor when it comes to buying a case for me anyway.This side channel is deep and long it's ashame they didnt think of popping some holes with grometts there.Plus the bottom tray they should have made the whole tray perforated to accept a larger rad.I might just cut some out myself and take advantage of that space,plus cut a small section in the drive bay area so I can turn my drives sideways and be able to hook up cables.Keep up the good work.

If you don't mind getting the dremel out, you can turn the hard drive cages in sideways and mount them along the bottom. Just cut some of the motherboard tray out to make room for cables. Even if you have a large PSU it, the hard drive cages will just fit, that way u can squeeze a rad in the front. Thats what I'm going to do with mine anyways.
