Yup, with a tad bit o'modding. If you look a little earlier in the thread I modded my front panel so that a 360mm rad will fit there (When I have the funds to watercool).

Thanks, that's what I thought. thumb.gif.

P.S. 1/2 acrylic pipe inside of 3/4 tubing fits great or just spare tubing cut to size
Thanks a lot for the idea! I just need to get some pvc. Thats a good solution, better than any I've seen so far.

It does vary on the fan and rad used.
When i did P/P there was no difference in noise, as the rad was a low FPI. But was able to get better overall temps by using lower speed fans.
My temps are great right now even when folding. In a warm room CPU sits at around 65c and the 780 runs around 45c when stressed.

So, my question a week ago didn't get answered so maybe someone can help me.

For those of you that have your HDD cages removed (both) and have a HDD, where do you guys mount it? If it's in the 5.25 bay, how did you go about mounting it? Did you buy an adapter or use the one included in the case? I have it in there now with the included adapter and it vibrates a lot, so it's starting to irritate me.

And an update on my problem I had with my PCIe slots: FD is sending me new standoffs. They said it should fix my problem where if I try to fit a discrete GPU in the case, the back of the card doesn't line up with the brackets. Hopefully it fixes the issue. If not, looks like it's time to get a Midi R2.

At the moment I only have an ssd. If I add an hdd I would use something like this because I don't have any space in my 5.25 bays. I would put it at the bottom of the case.

you can get a 5.25" to 3.5" drive bay adapter. I have two SSDs and two hard drives. Currently my hard drives are just sitting on top one another on the bottom of the case, just laying there. I will likely be moving them behind the motherboard tray ( pretty sure they fit)

Thinking like Malik, I see. tongue.gif

If only I could find one in the US. I've only found them off UK websites and shipping costs so much it's not worth it.

The SSDs for sure will fit behind the mobo. Not too sure on the HDDs though. They are pretty fat. If only FD made a little more room on the back it probably would. I've only seen 2.5 HDDs fit back there. Any particular adapters you recommend?

Anyone interested in trading their black expansion slot covers for my white ones?
