Will an MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Sea Hawk X or EVGA 1080 hybrid fit in the case. i.e. will the side panel close?

Seahawk yes
Hybrid no because it's using a wider pcb (I think the ftw pcb).
As an alternative you can also buy the 1070/1080 hybrid cooling kit which would work with a reference evga model.

New around these parts but here's one of my builds.

I spray painted the stock motherboard heatsinks from red to white.
As you can see in picture 3 I also put some thermal padding on a couple components which the top rad fan sits against.
Also added some heatsinks to the SSD (yes I left on the label) to possibly take away some heat but if anything to hide the fact its green and white.

Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX
Corsair rmx Series 750W 80 PLUS GOLD PS
Samsung 850 EVO - 250GB - M.2 SATA III Internal SSD
Gigabyte Micro ATX (GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5)
Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB 1866MHz DDR3
Intel Core i5-4690K OC'd @ 4.0Ghz
ASUS VG248QE 1080p/144hz
Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse
Poker 3 White Keyboard w/ Cherry MX Blues
MSI 1070 8GB SEA HAWK X

Ambient Room Temp: 27c (Couple fans occilating)
Video Card Exhaust (Idle) 31.9c (Load) 46.4c
Case Exhaust (Idle) 34.8c (Load) 39.9c
CPU @ 4.0Ghz Core Max (Idle) 49c (load) 57c
GPU HWinfo Max Temp (Idle) 38c (Load) 53c
SSD HWinfo Max Temp (Idle) 44c (Load) 54c

Load temps were me playing a round of Overwatch with the GPU in Gaming Mode using MSI gaming app.
Fans seem to run around 1200/1300 rpm I need to replace the fans with some different ones and possibly get an 80mm exhaust fan.

In a picture a few pages back (page 295 I think) there is a picture with an EVGA hybrid fitting just fine as far as I can tell. No idea if its a 1080 though, I couldn't find any posted specs.

If you're talking about my pic, then yes, it is a 1080 FE with the new EVGA Hybrid Kit

Is the radiator mounted in the second chamber or is it at the top ? (i think the latter). I am trying to find out if the block fits through one of the grommet holes to allow the radiator to be installed in the second chamber.

On the top... I'm skeptical about it fitting through the hole... may just make it, but not sure
