NZXT Source 210 Hard Drive cage question

Alright so I already ordered the parts for my PC and I realized that the hard drive cage looks like one whole thing, I ordered a Gigabyte 970 and it's over 230mm, the graphics card is 310mm and the maximum length is 330mm. Will I have to remove the whole thing and if so then what will I do with my hard drive? I'm pretty concerned about this since it's gonna be my first time building a PC.

3.5 to 5.25 bay hard drive adapter to place hard drive in the upper 5.25 bay. Might just be able to cut out part of the cage using a dremel.

I found that it just means it'll be blocked by high up hard drives and it'll be a bit close with only about 20mm of space but it'll fit. I'm probably gonna get a different case with 4 USB ports on he front and a window later one, or who knows maybe this one will grow on me and be kept.

I'll probably make use of one of the 5.25 bays to put an SSD in there eventually and move Windows over to it. Do you know if I'll have to put in my key again and will I lose everything when I move it?

or pay any re-stocking fees required and select another computer case.

(it's probably gonna get replaced by the H440 or something like that eventually.
