I just measured and with my motherboard and setup there is room for a 12" card if one exists, and with the bottom bay being empty you could put an even longer card in if there was such a card.

lots of room

Evilyeti.. forgive me for forgetting about you.. I asked for the pics myself too :p

Anyhow, that's one clean system, very nice cable management, the black case, psu with red stuff, shiny heatsink, blue heatspreaders on RAM, makes it look slick.. Though looks like a tower type heatsink may have clearance issues on the case..

Thanks for the pics..

A question to anyone who has one of these: is there space for a 140x2 rad between the mobo and the top of the case? The rad is about 32mm thick. Thanks!

Just measured the space between the top of the case and my motherboard and its about a 23mm gap.

Thanks Evilyeti. I found a post on overclock.net (*Official* Lancool Dragonlord Owners Thread!! - Page 9 - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net) that says there's 1.25 inches between the top of the case and the plastic shroud. Exactly the thickness of the Black Ice GTX 280 rad. Fans can go on the inside of the case, hopefully there's just enough space for them without hitting motherboard components. Just seems like no one has done it yet.

That is about what i measured just now, if it helps you decide anything there is about 6" of width for space before you'll run into an issue with blocking the plastic mounts that hold the top plastic shroud in place.

Also, mounting the fans on top inside of the case shouldn't be an issue, the only problem you might run into is the front top fan is over top of the cd drom drive bay slighty. And you have to use 140mm fans.
