I never said it couldn't, though with the front rad more than likely I'd have to remove 1 or 2 fans to not bump into the top as well as keeping cables run. My main concern was for TRI SLI, as well as more than one optical drive and my 2x 3.5" Drives, not having an issue w/ the SSD's I'm just looking for something clean.
Next issue as I previously stated, all I"m seeing on builds are x87's which only hold 4 member banks, I want to see an x79 in there w/ 8 so I can see how close to the front it gets. I never said any of it wasn't do able, there's just a limit to the amount of compromise one must make in order to get a case to work, in which if space issues exist and you have to start putting things outside, then why not just get something slightly bigger to accomplish that + room to grow in the future should one decide to keep upgrading , which I can't see w/ this case.
I've been reading up since before I bought it, and after, and from what I"m learning and being told by others, is that a 240/360 will be decent for this but there are biased views about many things here, 1) more rads for less noise = lower RPM's I get that, 2) The amount of Rad space per block. I'd be cooling a hex + 3x Titans if I continue my path , which I'm not certain a 360/240 can handle, noone's been able to answer that.
I'm not here to offend anyone, and I will never claim to know more either, I'm just very excited for a new build, and am studying up as much as possible, because my last build I just walked in and bought the best parts (what I felt was good enough ) and that was that. This time I want to take the time to make the best decisions, as well as future proof things for further growth.
My main reasoning for case labs was the constant scalability, + they have a cube design JUST like the Air540, though not as pretty, it gives a bit more room so I can shove in my opticals (which I'm not ready to part w/ yet) some fan controllers and my own idea of what I'd like things to look like, which is just like everyone else here whom would like to build their " ideal " case. Again I can't stress how I love the design of the AIR540, if it had just slightly more room it'd be the perfect case for "ME" everyone's different though.
So again I'm lost @ the "easy way out" comment, as I am not following. My apologies if I offended anyone. On another note I didn't make it to the store on time to return it.Edited by LunaP - 10/6/13 at 7:58pm
