Yeah you just want the drop-in option so that entire panel comes out if you need it, you see the six black screws holding down it's perimeter? You remove those and it all comes out leaving the entire thing open. Also makes it really easy to reach in and adjust/maintain things.

Oh so you mean just leave the whole thing open and don't even put the vented top panel back on top of it? I'm so confused lol.

Haha, no, you can put the panel back on. The case has the option of a 120.2 fixed top panel, or a drop in. The drop in lets you install fans/rad outside of the case and "drop it in" to place. But it doesn't even have to be there for the top panel to snap into place. So with it removed you have a better view.

That's "Flex Bay".


Drop in style:




Basically, a separate plate that can be swapped for different styles. The plates are additional.





Fixed:



Standard on the case.


Flexbay, as long as you have enough bays, you can add any of the Flex bay accessories.




edit: S3 pedestal rad bracket:

Right those I see. But regardless of what kind of "bracket I put on the top, this vented top still goes on top of it right?




In which case it still covers up whatever I choose to put there.

Yup, that's just the top cover. You can go with a window top cover but obviously you won't be able to use any fans or rads.


So, select "drop in style" w/ no accessories + window top panel ($10 extra):

Yea like I was telling stick earlier I want the top window but I also want ventilation. So he was explaining a way for me to get ventilation but still be able to look in from the top. I'm just not grasping it because I'm thick haha. I'm a visual guy I need to see it.

I guess what I'm not understanding is this. The top panel either has a window or a vent correct? So if that's the case, what difference does it make what bracket/mount I have underneath it?

No matter what I'm going to be looking at either of these two top panels when the case is all together correct?
