I have a Coolermaster 240 sealed if by chance I can squeeze it in but my research has led me to think that to get a 240 in the top or the front then everything has to come out and maybe that will be round two when and if I go full water on the mobo and gpu.

Thanks guys for all the comments, I just wanted to try a powerful mini.....it just sounded like a blast.

I wanted the GSkill Tridents but in the end the savings were just too big and the reports on these modules too strong to ignore. It was no contest comparing them to Corsair cost to performance.

Alan, I may be wrong, I'm sure you have read about them more than me. But, I thought they said remove the top hard drive bay (which I think is 3 bays, leaving 3 ) you can fit a 240 in the top. But you are right, to fit one in the front you would have to remove all of them.

I had just thought wiyh 3 2TB drives and a couple of SSDs and some velcro, you would be in good shape. That's basically what I'm doing with my full tower. I removed the bottom 3 drive bays to put a 360 in the bottom. That leaves me 3 bays in the top for hard drives. And, of course, I won't be without my SSDs,, even if I have to duct tape them somewhere.

Well from what I can see but haven't confirmed as the case is still in it's taped box but the optical drive must come out to give access for a 240 rad in the top. Then if you go front mounted then at least both drive cages must come out. I'm going with a standard graphics card and was planning on pulling the upper drive cage for it but wanted to leave the lower for placing two spinners and then lots of hidden options for the SSD's.
