People with Antec/Chieftec cases (Chenming-style)...
I'm pretty sure that I'll be ordering a Cooler Master ATC-710 soon. My current case (which is falling apart) will form the basis of a server box I am going to build for DSL routing/a DC Hub next year at uni.
It's pretty lush looking case, based on the very popular Chenming design which I believe a lot of Antec/Cheiftech cases use. I have a 120mm x 120mm WC radiator and would like to know whether I can get it in underneath the disk drive bays at the front of the case. I don't mind modding slightly if necessary.
I know quite a few of you guys use these awesome cases so could someone please take a look and give me their opinion? What's the largest square-shaped object you could fit under there?! If the space is something like 11cm high then that'd probably be enough after taking a dremel to the radiator housing.

I think you are using too large of a hammer when working on your PC.
Looks nice. This isn't going to be your primary machine?

Yes, it it going to be my primary machine. I'm going to scrape together some bits for a Linux box for next year at uni and I'll use my old case. Funnily enough I have taken a hammer to it a couple of times. Because of the WC stuff it also bends pretty scarily when you pick it up. Can't have that!
Anybody with one of these style cases? Pleeeeease?!!

Height clearance directly underneath the drive bay with the drive rail holders removed is not more than 100mm...

Hmm, ok. Thanks Shinma.
Damn, that's a bit annoying. Going to have to rethink things slightly. If I can get away with running 2 HDDs and an FDD in one of the bays and remove the other I might do that. I should only have one hard drive soon anyway because my 75GXP will die soon, I'm sure of it.

You're welcome Mutha Funker.
Enjoy the new chassis.

I got the Gun-Metal grey one as seen in those pics. It's also available in Silver. I'll let people know how it goes since this is a very new product.

Try to lay off using the hammer this time.
