It will be tight, but it can be done.
if you are thinking of removing the two HDD bays and doing it that way it wont work, the rad is too long and will hit the stealth bay.
running it off the back of the two hdd cages it will lower your fresh air intake and might give you poor performance : (

My Power supply is a 160mm so it'll be very tight and might be a problem. 22mm is quite few.


I do not want to fix it behind the drive bays hard because I want to run it in push-pull.

What is the available height between the bottom and the 5.25 bays ?

Mine arrived but it'll be a couple weeks before I start a buildlog. A lot of pictures to take and parts to put together at the moment.

Less then your rad. you would have to cut out the bottom of the 5.25 cages. Plus I don't think the holes lineup with a rad if you run it that way...

Hi Im new to the forum here. Just finished my first build with the switch. It a really awesome case but I do have a few small problems, dunno if anyone else noticed.
1. The stealth bay door gets caught on my asus dvd drive, so the drive wont close unless I move the stealth bay door out of the way.
2. The removable trays for the hdd feel cheap and its really hard to put the tray in with a 3.5' drive in the tray

also my fan hub seems to be broken since none of the fans are working, its connected to the 4 stock fans, 1 140mm NZXT fan and 2 140mm Bitfenix spectre pros, Ive already contacted NZXT hopefully its resolved soon. here are some pictures

You do not have a molex cord from your PSU plugged into the fan distribution PCB. That means there is no power going to it.

As far as the HDD mounts being cheap. They are designed to be flexible. This may seem like they are cheap, but it is meant to be that way. Also, helps with vibration noise.

For the stealth bay issue. Not really sure on that one. Can you post a pic of what is actually causing it to catch?

That would be an important one! lachen.gif

I did have it plugged in but it wasnt working so Im leaving it unplugged for now.

as for the stealth bay I'll take a picture later, but basically the bottom of the asus drive is getting caught on the support behind the stealth bay door.

Did you try multiple molex plugs? Did you make sure you had one going straight from the PSU to the plug on the PCB?

For the stealth bay, you might have some freak issue going on there. Perhaps a little sand paper or something could take care of it.
