I'm running 1 radiator in the bottom, so the other side is PSU + harddrive cage + pump-res combo.

Yes the drive cages are modular so you can move them as needed.

Heres a shot of the PSU side and also you can see the trays which the drive racks mount to.

We really try to give you as much flexibility as possible.

Can you turn them 90 degreds and mount them that way?

I'm just trying to figure out if its possible to get more then 4 harddisk + 2 ssd into it, when you use an radiator in the bottom.

Dust is still a problem in a filtered case, at a much degraded rate but with the amount of ventilation an X9 gives it'll also attract more dust to the filters with the differences in airflow in such a large area.

Hmmm im not sure, but you also have the tray behind the CPU cutout can fit 2x 2.5 and 1x 3.5 as well

and if I may ask what are you cooling?

That is correct, absolutely, regardless of filtration some will always get through... I wish it wasnt the case but it is because if you filter it so fine that NO dust gets through, also very little air gets through.

Maintenance and regular cleaning/dusting are always recommended on any chassis.

I already included that in my counting, as a hard drive cage can only fit 3 hard drives or 6 ssds (with a special mount).

My cooling is a bit overkill, but its what I'm doing.

I just looked at your sig and see the detail.

Interesting build and cooling needs. you have a solid component list but the configuration you are trying to run I dont know if you will be able to accomplish as the drive trays are designed to mount in teh orientation as you see in the images, they cannot be rotated.

With thats said im not sure what would fit that kind of setup in a reasonable price range.

I'm going for the X9, even if I can only fit the motherboard disk into it.
Its just a shame that I dont know how much more then that I can fit into it, but maybe I will just get another X9 down the line.

I am really trying to comprehend how you are planning to setup but unfortunately I cannot see inside your head thats why I ask the questions I do so I can make the best educated guess as to how you are configuring it.

Once you get it if you have any questions feel free to ping me and I will help however I can.

There is only really 1 way to do a 3 way rad build in it, 2 top mounted and 1 bottom mounted.
That leaves me with the PSU on the other side bottom, plus space for reservoir-pump combo and maybe a hard drive cage.

Right now so is my only questions how many hard drives I can fit into it with that kind of setup and overall limits on size, as some of my combos can be a little tall (like 102mm rad+fan top combo).
