Excuse me for my English, I'm french

E-Atx Motherboards will fit inside the case but they aren't recommended. You may or may not have trouble with some of your sata ports not being usable with the extended portion of a E-Atx being very close to the edges.

The top mesh picture is almost exactly like it is in real, but thats with daylight, when it´s dark it is much brighter., really like the case.

Few things that could have been better:
-PSU holes (bottom ones are good here, top ones are too high.)
-Activity/power led is way too bright.
-Fancontroller switch feels a bit "cheap"

Most Important:
-It is almost imposible to connect the bottom harddrive with a angled sata cable, so i had to put the top cage in to house my ssd, I would prefer to have all my drives in 1 cage, but I don't want to damage my drive or cable.

These are just small things, the rest of the case is just great!!

Just a sneak peak.

Question will a 360 rad fit anywhere inside without extensive cutting?

Not without modding frown.gif but I could see it being very easily done if you extend the space under the top mesh, but you may have to sacrifice a drive bay and it wouldn't be completely "inside" (this is the 500R I'm talking about) 400R not gonna happen lol
post #567 of 4610
How do you mean extend? and yes it would be the 500r
post #568 of 4610
Lemme find the photo to explain tongue.gif

Edit: this was originally posted by select striker so it's his photo but, you can see there is 2x120mm space on top so if you wanted to cut more space out the the front (right side of top in this photo) you could easily make it 3x120mm

But again you would lose a drive bay for sure lol and unless your using a slim rad it will stick up out of the case, which IMO would look pretty cool.

You would have issues fitting a real 240 in the top let alone a 360. If I were even going to try I would put a 240 in the front.

I can try to fit my RS240 in here next week but I doubt seriously that it won't interfere with anything. You definitely are not mounting fans inside you would have to mount them on the top, but to mount the fans you would have to run the long screws through the fan and then into the rad to make it work and sandwich the top of the case in between. RS240 is around ~1.5" thick I think. Look where the I/O hole and stand offs are. If you have any heat sinks on the motherboard up there eeek.
