Shouldn't be too much of a downer since the case will be on its side.
Also, notice the paint is no longer the nasty charcoal gray color. It looks ok and not too glossy imho.

i was about to say you woun' be able to fit any psu with 2 rads even you won't be able to fit a 420 or a 240 on the bottom if you mount it there. i just wish xigmatek fixed that before they put the case on the market. plus i wish they rotated the hdd cage's 90 degrees to where the back or the front depend what you say on where you plug the power and the data coneection for the drives towards the right side of the case so it would be much easier for cable management

What I did guys was had a local sheet metal cut out the fan on side panel,then had a local window company install a sheet of acrylic total cost was $40.

why not mount the bottom rad in front drive bays?

Me? smile.gif

That was my first plan but I wanted to do something different. I know how to relocate the power supply (my old 800D build), so with the Elysium's massive size, I was able to plan something different. I took lots of measurements and I'm hoping it fits like a glove. So far I pushed back the bottom SR1 as far as I could. This should give an insight on where the psu is going wink.gif

another idea, mount the psu on the rear, like external w/c rad !! it has the holes for the pipes?? if the supplies the right size may be able to mount to rear exhaust fan mount area

Meh, I couldn't find a large enough piece in the scraps bin to do a large piece for the window. I did buy a couple of smaller pieces to make a small window where the mesh used to be. Bought a 1.5mm and a 3mm thick pieces just in case. cost me $1 biggrin.gif. Anyways, psu should be arriving today so I'll keep busy with sleeving.
