Default Enthoo Pro M Front Fan/Radiator fit question

Hello,

Last year I build my system in an Enthoo Pro, and I have been very happy with it. However when I saw the Enthoo Evolv/Pro M interior design I fell in love. I am thinking of migrating my system to a new Evolv ATX or Pro M some time in Q1 2016. I spent a considerable amount of $$ on buying 4x140mm Noctua Fans for my previous build and I would very much like to use them in the new build. I would remove the ODD cage anyway.

On the Pro M manual is says that it will fit 2x140mm on top and 2x140mm in front. However since I have mechanical drives I want to use the HDD cage in the bottom front area. And I finally arrive at my question. Will 2x140mm fans be able to fit in front while retaining the HDD cage (and maybe hdd bracket)?

I plan to also watercool at some point so, if I try to fit a 280 rad in front will I be able to retain the HDD cage (and bracket to mount a pump possibly)?

I think I have seen someone fitting 3x140mm in front by fitting 2x140mm outside the case in the space between the metal cage and the front plastic and one 140mm inside on the top (but i think it was one of the round one that can be mounted in 120mm slot). I thought it wasnt possible to fit anything outside the metal cage.

Fans yes, 280mm radiator no. 240mm radiator in the front max with the bottom 3.5" disk cage in use.

The front fans generally are best put between the metal chassis and front plastic bezel on the Pro M. That is how the design is intended. Theoretically you could put them otherwise but it doesn't help any, and uses extra internal space.

If you want quiet, get the Evolv, if you want air flow, stick with the Enthoo Pro m

Of course it will fit them, the pro M is quite spacious and so there's plenty of areas to fit the fans however if you have the $$$, you can up the ante and get the Enthoo Pro for more working space. It's what I currently own, and it's way too much for me where as with the pro M, it'll be a tight fit.
