Yes, There is clearance if you don't put a fan on top which is not needed with all the other fan options. Of course you could modify the top to fit a fan up there which a friend of mine did, but probably overkill.

I have 4 large fans, two front, two back in push/pull. They are quiet as well. Also, I use a Noctua Air Cooler on the CPU.
Be sure to get the grid top, not solid.

Heat problems are no issue with this case.

With the grid on all sides, the lighting on fans and components show nicely.

you’re forgetting your business training and case studies.

namely “support costs” and the expenses associated with it.

as you know, the quicker you can cut costs, the quicker you can bump the roi

The grid top...LoL

You know I once had coffee tripping through my rig, from the top grid, through the GPU..over the board...out on the bottom....and it survived...even kept running.

They are great for ventilation but do have their "ahem" shortcomings.
