You could take off the bottom fan, and put the small HDD drive cage there. If the holes don't give you enough room for the PSU cables you can always make some new ones.

I've got a question. More of the parts I've ordered came in today (Still waiting on the fan controller and blu-ray burner.) including the Xigmatech Dark Knight Night Hawk Cooler. Now I normally do the grain of rice method, I don't remember where I heard this but someone said that Xigmatech recommends that you put a small dot of thermal paste on each of the heat pipes on the cooler but doesn't say anything about it in the user's manual.


Is it safe for me to still use the grain of rice or do I need to put the thermal paste one cpu cooler first?

This should work best:

Is it fine to have the R4 case wires (Power/LED/Reset/) Under the motherboard? The wires are bothering me so much that, in order for me to completely or almost hide it was to slap it right under the motherboard.
