I am really sold on the NZXT Tempest 210 ATX Mid Tower Case. I am looking at R9 280 video cards and getting the following compatibility warning.
Compatibility Notes In order to fit, the XFX Radeon R9 280X 3GB Double Dissipation Video Card may require removing drive bays from the NZXT Tempest 210 ATX Mid Tower Case. The case only supports video cards up to 230mm in length without removing drive bays, while the video card is 294mm long.
The case has three 5.25 drives slots (I will used 2-3) and eight 3.5 drive slots (I may use 2).
I have three questions: 1. What drive bay type is lost should it have to remove it/them? 2. How may drive bay would I have to remove? 3. Is it a low or big impact to lose these drive bays?
