Has anyone used a H115i in the front with a STRIX 1070/1080?

if you do the math it looks like they will be touching each other.
I dont have that exact setup but i do have the evga 280 clc and evga gtx 1080 and they fit with plenty of room.

ya, i have the 3 fan 1070. i think i will have to mount the fans in the front and have the rad inside the case, with that my only option would be to push or pull...

is the best option to push or pull the rad air (blow warm air into the case, or out)?
it looks as if jerflash is blowing the warm rad air out of the case,right?

thank for the response guys.

What I mean by this is that there is no dedicated 2.5" drive bays. In fact the only way to install an SSD is by using the 3.5" to 2.5" adapter which works OK. But what if you have two SSDs? Then things get really awkward. The only way you can install two SSDs is to sandwich them together top-to-bottom in the 3.5" to 2.5" adapter which makes installing the SATA and power cables really difficult as you have to fanangle them around each other until you end up with a twisted mess of cables connecting the SSDs.

The case comes with only ONE adapter. The other way to install SSDs is to screw them in the Xdock bay. However there is a circuit board in the back of the Xdock that two hard drives can dock into (snaps into a SATA data and power connector). I don't know if you can use SSDs instead of HDDs because I haven't tried it. I don't know if they would align or not. Having SSDs in the Xdock bays would make them hot swappable.
you can screw them into the hotswap trays. i had a 2.5inch HDD for a temp. purposes and they connected with no problems.

Hi all!

I'm looking to mount a 1080 ti Seahawk x to the top panel of my HAF XB. Its a 120mm mounted fan (with radiator beneath). So essentially I'm looking to get a top panel with a 120mm fan mount. Are there any mods or replacement panels with the capability out doing this?

Has anyone removed the hot swap bays, and modified to 5.25" optical drive bays? My build has a different plan for that space. Does anyone know if the 5.25" bay cage is available separately? Anyone who has removed their's, want to sell it?

Never mind. I figured out a solution. Just getting started on this build, but had to overcome the first barrier to my plan. Nailed it.

Still waiting on more parts. FedEx says delivered, but not delivered here. I hate FedEx. Luckily I had all I needed to get the case ready. Was painful to take a saw to my case, but there was no way to get what I wanted. Sorry the pics are so dark. The last pic is of my final vision. No dust concept. I'm up and running at 5 ghtz stable. If I can do it, any one can. I'm clean, mean, and my CPU screams. This case is do versatile. It would have been so helpful if they had offered it with a 5.25" option on the right hand side. Not hard to modify it though. Opens up huge options when done. One of the complaints with this box, is the lack of room behind the power supply. Moving the hard drive bay over to the left eliminates that issue, allowing a much shorter optical drive to occupy that real estate. Not sure why Coolermaster didn't see this as an optional way of doing things with this awesome case. I totally give them credit for listening to the feedback, and making their super awesome case, even better. I've been dying to get the case for years. I so love it. Hopefully my modifications will give the makers of this superb product, a new way of looking at the greatest case to ever be placed on the market. Anyone interested in my unique build, is welcome to ask me about it.
