    Hi,

    In the future, I was considering installing a 280mm radiator in the front using the Evolv ATX. This requires removing the hard disk tray which is currently populated by one 3TB WD Caviar Black. What enclosure would you recommend as a solution?

    Cheers.

    You have two 3.5 HDD bays under the PSU shroud you can use no? I'd imagine keeping the drive connected internally via sata is preferable to sticking it in an external enclosure and hampering the read/write speeds.

    Don't think so as I'll be installing a radiator in the front. Could mount the cooler up top but concerned about temps. You reckon up top would be ok?

    Cheers.
