The front hot swap HDD caddy can be used with a SSD / 2.5" HDD just fine should you mount a 360mm rad up front. 3.5" HDD, probably not. It is an extremely tight fit.
Rad in pictures is the AX360, test fitted with straight, XSPC low profile 7/16" black chrome fittings.
The front "fin" rail has been blended 1-2mm from its original position. The caddy still slides in, only slightly more difficult.
Measurements indicate that I won't be able to use AX240 + AX360, unless I am willing to "lose" the top pull fan on the 360 - inless I re-drill the top.
Clearance from the existing 120mm fan holes to the top fan of the 360 (The ax 360 is 40mm thick) is 20-21mm tops.
The corresponding distance between the fan screw hole and the end of the common tank (the end opposite from the one with the i/o tank) on the AX240 is 24mm.
The EX240 is about 17-18, thus should fit tightly without loosing the 6th fan on the AX360.
Crossflow EX240 is also not going to fit.
So, as far as XSPC rads go, it is either AX360 + EX360, or EX360 + AX240/EX240.Edited by pcfoo - 7/27/13 at 9:30am
