didn't even notice that. Major ouch. Now I'd personally invest in a case that would last 5 years... IE, TJ09/TJ10. Hail to the king of cases, baby.

Is that in response to me?

The Soprano is a mid tower case.
I have an Armor Jr and a Tsunami and my X2 barely fits, matter of fact I had to remove the lower hdd cage so my X2 would fit.
The Soprano is the same size as my cases.
More than one optical and 1 hdd and your in trouble.

I could remove the HD cage and just mount the HD where the external 3.5" drives go. I dont really plan on using anymore than one drive anyways. Plus I had an idea of getting a 250mm (is that right?) fan in the plexy window to blow some air on the cards. Would that work out alright?

I'm not aware of a 25cm side panel fan for the TT midtower cases.

That's what I did, moved my hdd to the fdd bay in the top.
With the Armor Jr I was able to install 2x 120mm intake fans, IDK if you can do that with the Soprano.
It looks like the Soprano is the same as my Tsunami other than the intake being 140mm, so you won't be able to fit another intake fan without some modding.

I really think you should look into fulltower cases, tri sli would really turn a midtower into an oven.

To fit a 250mm fan on the side panel, doesn't look hard at all, plus it looks like one can fit. Just cut the plexy case for it. I'v done custom work before (car audio subwoofer fabrication).

Oh yeah, isn't the 9800gtx a little smaller than the 3870x2?

I just took some quick measurements, it'll be a tight fit.
Couple possible issues
1) Door latches, to clear them you would have to move the fan more forward and that might create clearance issues with the front drivebays.
Also might have to cut metal along with the plexi.
2) Inside clearance with the Tuniq will be close due to the depth of the fan, an easy fix is mounting the fan on the outside like I did with my old Armor.

Look forward to seeing your work

EDIT> I think they are the same length.

EDIT 2> Not to mention, cable managemnet will be a monster in a midtower case.
