Hey, if I want to have a 2,5 drive, the only way is to use a double side tape?

There are a lot of holes on the back, could someone tells me the option that I have with these?

Thanks a lot!

After a couple feedback, I will have to decrease the official supported cooler height down to 67mm. While SOME larger coolers may fit, the variance is a bit too much. A user reported that his Noctua NH-L12S did not fit, specifically by 2mm. While my Big Shuriken 3 did fit (with 1mm to spare on Asrock B450 ITX AM4).

This does hurt the viability of the project and it seems I made a couple mistakes. If any buyers are not 100% satisfied, please send me a PM/contact email.
Will the Noctua NH-L9i work in this case?

I'm only able to mount the mean well psu with one screw with the psu oriented sideways. On the side of the psu, the screw holes are 7.5 mm apart but the holes on the bottom of the case are 5.5 mm apart. Although, the psu's mounting holes on the bottom line up with the case's so I can mount the psu right-side-up but then that doesn't leave enough room for the mobo. Did I miss something?

No you are correct. I just finished the adapters (ssd and rear cover) so PM me your order number and I'll mail you them. It'll fix the issue. I provided the mounting holes as an after thought and mixed up the specifics. You will see two set of them. The one near the gpu allows you to mount ssd or hdds.

Anyone else reading this and wants to use the meanwell can Pm me their order number and I'll mail the covers.

@smitty2k1 you also need a set right?

Yes please! Glad to hear you didn't forget about us :)

I got my adapter and rear cover in the mail. Thanks, @Thehack ! I need a bit of help with it, though. I was thinking the adapter would go between the PSU and the case but I the holes don't seem to line up.

Let me double check the model.
I didn't check mine, I just installed the rear Flex cover. I assumed that bottom bracket was just for 2.5" SSDs and not for the Meanwell support. My Meanwell has been doing fine with a single screw holding it in.

Been searching for a while to find a perfect case for a mobile homelab box, and this could easily fit the bill. I'm wondering though, anyone got any pics of how/where they stuff their SSDs? I'll need to stuff a minimum of 2 in there, but wouldn't complain if I could put in 4+. Is there an SSD bracket for the XL @Thehack ? I saw that your store had one for standard Pure case and was curious if the XL had one

He provided a bracket that goes in the place of the Meanwell that holds 3 SSDs. I think it could also go in the place of the GPU.

When I checked on J-hack's shop this bracket only lists the standard Pure, but is lacking the XL listed as compatible, so hence the question. Additionally, I'd be configuring the Pure X with this Flex PSU, and I'd like to put some 80mm fans on the side with the PCIe slot for some additional airflow.

If it adds clarity, below is my parts list for the project:

If I can stuff more 2.5" SSDs with double sided tape in here without obstructing the 80mm fans too much, then I can get some that are a lower capacity and cheaper (hoping). I'll likely be ordering this case before ordering the board so I can do some test fitting. Might be able to get the cheaper variant with a passive heatsink and mount a Noctua NF-A12x25. If I can't stuff more drives, I'll probably swap to a Ryzen based build as I can just use the PCIe slot for the 10g networking instead

The bracket is free of charge and comes with your unit.

For your build, using the bracket will obstruct the fans, so the best way to deal with it is to double side tape wherever you can fit it. This means one 1-2 in the front.

Got the case and looking forward to building in it. Alas, I left my toolbag in my car that's getting fixed at the autobody shop, so will have to wait til the weekend to pop the top

Autobody shop was expedient, so decided to do a bit of assembly and checking out how I want to route things. I'm suddenly debating between continuing the server board based build without anything in the PCie slot and mounting some 40mm fans on the side for good airflow, or build a ryzen 3600/3700x based system, add a 10g NIC, and likely forego the fans as they'd just be straight against the card. Anyway, here's some starting pictures:
