I have five 3.5" drives, and probably more in the future. If my AP-15 fans can handle that kind of obstruction, I might opt for the more manageable 750D. Kinda hard to test before buying the case

AP-15 are good so should be able to supply airflow no problems. Have you looke at new Phanteks Evolv X? It will suppor up to 10 3.5 HDDs with extra mounts.
