Hate this build…

I’m about to throw in the towel with this system…

Like what am I doing wrong with this? I cannot figure out why everything isn’t fitting…

Might be my very last system I build myself, kind of despise this shit.

Isn't it obvious? the case can't take that much drives.

 

Can't you fit them under the PSU airflow killer cover?

Or use the holes which you used to screw in the HDD, see if they line up there.

It looks like it's just the SSD mess that is keeping you from being able to put the back panel on. 

With that many drives, you're really going to have to plan out where you're running cables and where you put the slack. 

 

Edit: The case came with your solution.

Your absolutely disasterous cable management and lack of any and all logical installation is the problem, not the build.

 

You've got 2 drive bays behind those free-floating SATA SSDs.  Also, did you just make up that HDD Mount?  That doesn't look like the intended drive install location.

 

Also:  You could get an adapter to put both of those 2.5" SSDs into a slot for 1x 3.5" Drive.

@Abyssal RadonThe reason I say it came with what you need is that if you go to the closed front, and use HDD bays it'll clean up most of your mess. Since it's still an "open" interior and looks like there's room for your AIO, front mount that AIO and then start stacking drives from the bottom up in the bays.

Got a new routing plan. Going to shove the connectors in the basement and plug everything back in then, route the 2.5” drives behind the motherboard tray…

Use the drive bays the case comes with. I don't understand the thought process here.

I can’t have the extra drive bays. I need to put the panel closer to the opposite side of the glass.

What part makes it not fit? Fractal is saying it fits GPUs up to 300mm long, and your 3080 FTW3 is 300mm long.

I’m considering that, likely would go with a large SSD, I only have that hard drive for video editing.

What exactly were you planning to do with 5 mismatched SSDs? RAID isn't going to be optimal with mismatched drives.
