Hows this case holding up? Can you comment on the noise level? Looking to build a plex server like yours and put it into a utility closet..Great build, cant believe all those WD Reds!

Glad Im not the only one who ran into this. I'm actually going to drill a 3/4 - 1"hole in the top corner of the hdd cage and run the 8-pin cable out through cage so it sits just right and isn't squished behind/above the cage. Probably the only con about this case...other than that I really like it.

Nice build! Noticed you used an HDD for this build. I really like the Air240 case but found that the design lacked space for the HDD case to fit properly with the CPU wire in the way. Does that make sense? How did you make this work?

Probably one of the things I didn't think out well now that you guys are mentioning it. I bought the M.2 to be a boot and systems type thing to keep the machine fast and the OS clean. Then added the 500 SSD as storage for everything else (Programs, Apps,family pictures and videos and now adding the HDD as a plex storage. It all seems disjointed now that I type that and not well thought out. Should I get an external drive now for back up?

Thanks! Great point The Plex bug has caught me recently so picked up a 2TB 3.5 HDD to throw into the rig. The Corsair Air240 is a great case but one downside as I'm just finding out is the 3.5 HDD cage that fits behind the MB. It turns out there is no room for the cpu 8 pin cord and the cage in this area because of the way the cage sits. Anyways just going to modify the HDD cage to make this fit.
