I purchased the RTX 4090, I have it already but it's way too big for my case, Thermaltake Chaser MK 1
I have to buy a new pc case, larger
Thermaltake Core W100 looks good, I need 2 x 5,25 bays
One for the DVD RW and another one for the fan controller

What do you think, guys? Can I get the RTX 4090 inside?
Is it possible to move to the right all the HDD/ SDD interior bay?

Can I mount the fan controller on the front side?
That's the most important. DVD RW, I could use some external one if I need
Thank you very much
LE : It's smaller than the Thermaltake MK 1

The bottom panel on the Fractal Pop XL Air is held on by magnets.

So yes. Easily.

Which RTX 4090 did you get? There diifferent lengths. Research dude. It will fit a 17.9" Long card. And on the front bottom like madpistol said there's a small panel that has magnets on it. Here's a picture if it works here.

Here is newegg page. Look for the specs. It will tell everything.

Thanks, I'll keep searching.
I use the Fan controller ( switch on / off, RPM adjust ) pretty often, and the position on the bottom of the case its not a good idea

I got the lian li o11 dynamic last year for a build. Just got the 4090 and while it fits in the case I can't get the side panel due to the cable. Even the upcoming 90 degree cable is still too chunky to work. So looks like i'll have to shop for another case.
I do see lian li sells a vertical GPU adapter. If I could rotate it, it may just work. I need to look at that more.

I am looking at this case. When i read the reviews there was some ambiguity on whether or not whether or not one of the two drive bays at the bottom could be used. Can both hold an optical drive or is something physically blocking one of them inside?

I'm rocking a Corsair 5000D airflow and the Gigabyte 4090 card fits just fine, with plenty of room to spare for front fans. The 4000D should work fine, too. I think the only issue most people will encounter is with power cable. Those things are rigid as hell, they stick out, and the vast majority of cases don't give you a ton of room between that and the wall of the case.
