I am working on my first build with this case.

I have an FP55 drive adapter set-up with a 3.5" HDD and a 2.5" SSD. I see many people use this same configuration and I am concerned with the longevity of the hard drive as I can't see any airflow getting to that spot. Thanks!

Question, is it physically possible to mount a 200mm fan in this case, possibly with some fan hole mods?

I have a couple of light mods to it, and am planning a full custom waterloop for both CPU and GPU. Fakeblood's build is the build that tipped me over the edge and buy this case.
Light mods included are DVD Optical drive stealthing and 3.5 HDD in 5.25 drive.

Also, Plexiglass on the bottom of the 5.25 bays, and on the bottom floor of the case.

And lastly, my SSD's on the back panel.

The build continues!

MetallicAcid i love that stealth DVD optic drive, how did you do it? And how did you atach those ssd at the back? I have two old vertex 2 60gb siting on my top of DVD optic drive.

I havent had any issues for the 6months I have owned mine and wouldnt worry about it. I currently have a SSD and a 2.5" HDD up there. Recently due to the 90F ambients I decided to run the window it comes with along side with some home window screen mesh for some cool air to enter the case for the gpu, thus also blows by the hard drives. Pics in my 2012 rig in the signature. With the 180mm and 120mm pushing air through the case, there is actually air going into the case from the opening (negative pressure) rather than pushing out.

There is a guy in here with like 5 - 3.5" hard drives up in the 5.25 bay area and I havent heard him complain either.

The DVD drive:
I had taken the 5.25 panel, and folded in the metal tabs, then took double sided tape to hold the tabs in place. Then I took an old plexi glass cutoff and taped that on place too. Anything can be used as long as it isn't more than 2mm thick. Just by pressing in the lower right corner presses the DVD drive open button.

SSD mounting:
I mounted these on the back of the case using 2 layers of 2mm thick plexi, so it comes 6mm off from the back panel (including double sided tape), this created the perfect distance for hiding cables behind. The channel hides 1 molex connection (for my H80) 2 sata data cables and 2 sata power cables.

I hope this helps! thumb.gif
