Hi guys - I'm extremely tempted by this case but I have quick watercooling question. I read the OP but it wasn't covered;

Do any of you know if I'd be able to fit a 360 rad in the front of the case too? I realise that a dremel/drill may be required to remove or relocate the bottom three 5.25" bay slots but is it possible? Ideally I'd like to fit a 360 rad up the top too. Both in P/P.

Cheers!

I suppose you could, if you removed the HDD cages and the 5.25 bays. Otherwise, no. A 240mm is the largerest that will fit in the front, and you'll have to either mount it onto the HDD cages, or remove both HDD cages to install it.

Is there a case out there, besides the crazy expensive ones, that will fit 2 360s?

LOL If you wanted, I believe you could do this on the top tongue.gif

I believe so! You should be able to, the Switch 810 is a square chassis, same height and length. I think there is enough clearance to keep that top optical. I'd love to see this thumb.gif

Removing all the HDD cages wouldn't be an issue for me - I only have 1x 2TB HDD, the rest of my files are on local network storage, I don't use an internal optical drive either (I've got an external USB drive for when I need it, but that's not too often).

Can the 5.25" bays be removed without cutting or drilling anything do you know?

the two lower HDD cages are removable, but the 4 5.25 bays will need to be cut out

I believe all you'd need is a drill, to take the rivets out. Other than that, you should be good to go. Though, if you need a fan controller and an ODD, you're kinda screwed/
