    Were you using a 65mm or 30mm 240 rad up front? I am hoping that it fits a “thick” rad plus fans PLUS the pump bracket, but I’m doubting it.

    The rad up front is a 30mm in a push only if your bent on putting in the 65mm rad up front then depending on your configuration go with a 5.25 bay reservoir pump combo,or move the pump to the back of the case with a tube reservoir.you may have to loose the fan at the back doing so but just pointing out that there are other options available.

    Good looking case guess I missed this review but great review and definatly something I would consider building a new system in it or moving one of my current Rigs components into this one for some better cooling!
