Thanks Badwrench, appreciate your suggestions.

I ended up going with an EVGA graphics card with their ACX cooler, understanding that would mean dealing with some additional heat in the case. A reference cooler might have been the easier choice.

I'll give your fan config a try...sounds promising. Like you, I'll have the front fan running max. The MSI motherboard only has one system fan header (the trade-off for 5 SATA ports I guess), so I'll have to figure out which fans I want to run off the header and which I'll direct connect to SATA power/molex.

I remember seeing an old post on using the CoolerMaster MegaFlow 200mm fan (probably yours) and the clearance issue with the ODD tray support tabs. I found that a dremel tool with a cut-off wheel makes quick work of removing the two extra tabs at the top/front of the fan. With these two tabs removed, the fan clears the ODD tray tabs and no issues mounting the fan or ODD tray. In the pic below you can see where I sliced off the unused tab on the fan to clear the little metal tab on the case.

I bought 350D, then this came out 2 weeks later. I would still swap to this day.

That's strange. I got my CM 200mm fan installed with the ODD tray just fine without modding anything. When I installed the ODD tray I remember I had to push up on it or else it wouldn't fit but it didn't put stress on either the fan or ODD.

Unless there is a difference between the clear and black versions of the 200mm fan

anyone know?
post #418 of 3052
saw this video. Since it can fit the Asus GTX 780TI DCU which is little bit bigger than the Asus R9 270X DCU, i assumed that 205D has no problem to fit the R9 270X.

I finally found a place that still had this case in stock! thumb.gif

I got it in the mail today - along with other goodies. Sadly I still do not have a motherboard nor do I have my H100 but I am hoping to get both some time next week. It will either be the MSI GAMING or the MAXIMUS IMPACT. Either way, I had planned to have much better quality pictures to share... but as I do not have all of my parts, you will have to make due with a crappy cell phone picture.

I guess for the time being I will work on my cable routing. Sigh...
