If you put a 360 radiator into the front-drive bay area, how many 5.25"'s do you have left?

I currently have two in use, but I want to move to a dual-bay res, so I'll need four..
My top bay is unusable, (I'll be changing that with some modding) and I have a fan controller that only takes up the front inch or two of one bay..
Would I be able to fit the fan controller around the radiator?

Probably looking ~410mm for a triple rad. Looking at some pics of front mounted rads on Elysiums, it looks like it takes up about 9 slots.

So 3 free? Well, I'll just dive in again.. I didn't realise the 420 up-top would remove my top bay either, but I'll be okay, i'll get rid of my Optical drive.. smile.gif

I bought an external kit to convert an internal dvd drive into a usb 3.0 external drive. Runs all my disk games.



Can't wait to get mine. I'm so impressed with "kingchris"'s mod that I'm super tempted to invert the mb tray and stick the psu in the drive bays. I had been thinking of doing the psu in the drive bays but I didn't know the mb inversion can be quite easily.

Just be prepared for how damn huge it is.. I bought it strictly on the watercooling capacity, and then realised I could just about fit my old case (CM690II) into the motherboard area.

It's awesome, and the gap between the back plate and the motherboard panel is insane.
My only problem is it looks so empty with my plain ATX board inside, so I'll be beefing up when it gets to Haswell.
