Are the recommendation of these 2 cases based on actual installations or measurements? With the Kraken x60 and it's fans there would have to be a Miniumm clearance between the top edge of the motherboard and the fan or radiator depending on configuration.

After checking, the 500R has great support for 120mm fans but the Kraken X60 is a 280mm unit with 2 140mm fans and a matching large radiator. The only place it seems the rad/fan setup may be mounted is the side panel which I would prefer to avoid. So far it seems that the 500R will nor work unfortunately.

The Bitfenix ghost may be a contender if the top fan mount spacing if compatible. any Ideas?
