Thanks! If I can indeed use the stock bracket right next to the mobo as such, then I can use a single 2.5in HDD. Loading and boot up times don't really bother me anyway.
How are the temps BTW? I'm planning to use a 4690K overclocked to around 4.0ghz as I play mostly Total War. I wouldn't even really need to overclock if they only fixed this to run on three cores, or even two, but as it is I'm going 80% on a single core and thousands of soldiers being rendered just gets hiccups when half of them are already a bunch of corpses.
I was about to ask about this too, since the rad and push fan won't be smack next to each other. And yeah, I also plan on not using the AP141 - my two AP121's have audible motor whine* and the thing is given how the walls are on this case (plus the pull fan that looks like I'll be able to use) I think I'd actually want some of the air that isn't going through the rad to get thrown towards the walls. Any of it that ends up near the graphics card will then get sucked in by the blower and then out the back of the card on top. Most of the other hotter air will blow over the mobo and RAM, but hopefully with enough pressure from the pull fan.*which is a shame, given the air whoosh is very quiet vs a pair of Enermax fans I first used (the stock fans on my PS07 now had a lot of audible noise in both aspects); the AF120 Performance are a lot quieter in terms of the motor and vibration even at 12vEdited by PM323 - 11/13/14 at 7:35am
