You could technically take out the 200mm fan at the front installing one or two smaller ones and place them there.

How much space is there where the 2.5" drives go? I could make a custom bracket to fit 3.5" drives where the 2.5" drives go, but I don't know if a 3.5" drive would be too thick...

Maybe you can try a SFX power supply, a modular one, so you can get enough space for them to place under your power supply compartment

and hopefully you got few places for 1 or two 2.5" HDD

You know not a bad idea for more space. He would be able to fit 4 3.5 drives where the drives go like this possible strapped or bolted up laying on their sides. It never dawned on me about using an SFX PSU in place of a normal size ATX PSU. This is what I did to fit a better PSU into my first budget gaming rig. I have a picture of it up a couple of posts. thumb.gif

I have managed to somehow reduce my GFX card max temps around 70degC, which seems OK, by working on the GFX card fan,CPU fan and case Fan speed profiles combination ( Highly recommend the software called Speedfan for that purpose,what Gigabyte delivers with their Mobo and GFX card is actually really poor)

now next task on my PC is to find a away to accommodate the fitting of 3 single 3.5"hdd.I know the case is designed for 2 max but I have one in a hdd enclosure that I would like to integrate.

been checking quickly some builds on the thread but could not find such solution implemented. my idea would be to locate the 3rd one on the top window just above the front fan.

hot air raise but I assume there is enough flow provided by the 200mm front fan to avoid the hdd to be stressed due to high temp,I just need to figure out how to keep it in place considering its weight and also damp the vibration obviously.

I am also considering the option to modify the existing hdd bracketery in the case to get this 3rd one fitted.I have at the moment 2 single 3.5 hdds for my games and media files and 1 2.5 SSD where my 2 OS are running.

any comments,thought appreciated.

thanks in advance

been thinking overnight about another option for locating this 3rd 3.5"hdd. I think the lower are for PSU and cable managment would be a good contender.
my PSU is just 150mm long so I could place the hdd behind it, sitting on the bottom case panel with some rubber pads against vibration and plug power/sata cables easily to the PSU and mobo.
Cable management would be affected but not that much. I think the 200mm front face position would bring some cool air to the hdd,still,so heat wont be a problem.

what you guys think?

How about vertically next to the PSU under the GPU with the plugs facing the front of the case? I think there would be enough room there and it wouldn't interfere with cable management at all.

I see what you mean
I am just worried about vibration and heat generated by the psu to the hdd.also the access for sata connection to the mobo might be tricky there

But i keep that one in mind when i open up the case this weekend
