Thanks alot FM you have been very helpful today lol smile.gif I should just start sending my questions to your inbox haha! I think the Gene-Z in this case will look very beautiful indeed and I was just going to ask if the bottom fan would be able to work with the HX1000 but you already answered thats question thanks again.

PS: are you really using a Dell Inspiron 530 as a case?

If any of you that own this case have time, could you do me a huge favor and measure here? It looks like it can mount some 120mm fans on the side of the cage from the pictures, is that the case? It looks like just over 240mm obviously from the front fans but I can't tell for sure. I'm looking from the very bottom of the case to that little flap on the bottom of the 5.25 bays.

Yeah but I "might" want to put a 240mm rad there... so I need to know how big the actual space is and if I can use the fan mount points. If they're flush with the bottom of the case then I would have to modify it some.

Judging from this photo, your gonna have to do some modding, it looks pretty flush but until someone gets you measurements I honestly don't know tongue.gif

its a bit less than 240mm (236mm- 237mm) under the 5.25" cage .... but since the rad would go on the left side of the hd cages, like the fans in the image Flaming Midget posted, it will probably fit if you are not using the bottom 5.25" ... maybe some modding will be needed to fix the rad tho, not sure you will be able to use the one pre-drilled for the 120mm fans

those HD cages are made to receive 2x 120mm fans, but a rad is bigger than 2x 120mm fans (h100 for example is 275mm)

Thanks. So like I thought there is no extra room towards the bottom of the case. Oh well, I could always fab something up.

Damn, that's a shame. I have a question though, how easy would it be to put a 360mm at the top with the back 1/3 hanging off the end of the top?
