On the back of the case in the bottom compartment, you have roughly ~60mm in between the fan and the PSU, as well as ~60mm between the fan and the side panel. The back of the bottom compartment is much more flexible as far as setup is concerned, the front is very tight in comparison.

If you need anything else, let me know before next weekend... I plan to finish the build and I won't be willing to take it apart to measure things for you anymore

Liu Kang, did you get that PA120.1 to fit in the front fan mount with the drive bays installed?

Looks like I can get my hands on another PA120.2 AND a PA120.1.. Currently I only have a 120.2 and 160 allocated to this potential project.
This would let me use every fan mount for some sort of rad!! haha.. talk about freaking overkill.

Infiniti just sent me a pic of his mobo tray. Tonight I'll take a look and see how many holes I'll have to drill for it to properly mount a mATX board.

Short answer: no.

Long answer: The mounting mechanism of the H2GO 5.25 bays is a little odd... you have to screw your DVD/BluRay into the BOTTOM of the case (holes are provided, and ROMs have tapped holes on the bottom as well). Once it's in place, you can screw in a brack on each side of the DVD/BluRay, these brackets allow you to install devices in the top 2 bays.

None of this will not work if you mount a rad at the front of the case.

You can only mount the rad 1 way in the front of the bottom compartment, the way I have it installed in the picture, with the fittings along side the 5.25 bays. Even if you mod your DVD/BluRay to fit in the bottom bay w/ a radiator installed, you will not be able to use the MountainMods brackets to mount additional devices.

All this to say that you'll have to fabricate/mod ever part to fit the front bay should you decide to run a rad up front.

That was my original plan, so I think you should go for it :) I fell in love with the LE and decided to use it rather than a mATX board, so I had a change of plans...

I think it's 3, but I could be wrong.
