Long story short, middle fan can not fit because of pci-e connectors.

Connectors fit but wire cant.

I will try cut some plastic on molex to pci-e adapter connector so I can make custom 90 degree connector. Anybody knows where I can mail order 90 degree angle molex to pci-e connector?

EDIT I have found 90degree adapter but shipping only to US. I need International Europe shipping.

Thanks

Well since you can't install hard drives in the top hard drive cage anyway, remove it altogether, and do something like this.

Hi Okultis!

To understand the problem better, which middle fan are you referring to?

Antec

That is perfect.

or just mount the fan in the front intake. the empty drive cage guides the air to the same area.
