The fan controller need 1 molex connection... I did not know of a better way to route it. It's a short run cable from the fan controller.

There's not really enough room on the back mobo for holding the SSDs frown.gif

Yeah you say that, but bear in mind that we all have the same case and we all manage to do it. So....

Maybe it will just take a little time and effort.

I use a Kill-A-Watt meter and my UPS. I test under 4 settings. Idle CPU/GPU, 100% Load CPU only, 100% Load GPU Only and 100% Load CPU+GPU. Also I max out all fans and anything that uses power.
They way systems are now, it is by far more efficient than ever now.

You can keep the lower cage if you like, but remove the plastic sliders from the top and bottom.
SSD can be place behind mobo and HDD inside ODD bay. This way you have clear airflow.
Also it is good idea to add a bottom intake fan to add air flow towards GPU.

Molex is needed for the fan controller.

Cables goes behind DVD cage, SSDs goes in back of motherboard.
I have the same case and same setup and i know it can be done.
You can put HDD in DVD cage also with bay rafter 3.5" to 5.25"
SSDs have a place in the back of mobo, they need to be in the back of MBO.
There are holes for them to be mounted or you can youse double side tape to stick them in the back.

I wish I could do that... But my PSU isn't modular and has a ****ton of cables I don't need.
So the component part of my case is nice and tidy but I wouldn't invite anybody to look behind the motherboard x)

Sigh, I need one of you guys to come over and help me cable manage all of this.... tongue.gif

I imagine I will have to unplug every connection and re-route it. I had to actually remove the top large grommet to make it all the cables fit through it.

Is there some sort of agreed layout of the different cables for modern motherboards with this case? ALL of my h100i cables etc are coming out the tiny top grommets already, those seemed the most logical.
