I see 2x hard drive slots at the bottom but when you go to the drop down menu you can select up to 4x drives. If you can add cages i think you might be able to go 3 high and still clear the water cooling hard lines but were does the 4th go? on the back? I can not fine pictures of the back of a velox case. Maybe its 2 in the cages and 2 in the back?

Well if you added a twin turbocharged doofus doll to the second from last cheese cracker - it might just work...

Depending on the motherboard, there will be at least two M.2 slots for NVMe SSDs. The Maximus Hero has 5. Many motherboards, including some or all of the ones DS uses have indents stamped into the back of the board which accommodate 2.25" SSDs. Then there's the cage you mention. If you're looking for a space for four 3.5" HDDs, you may need an Aventum or be out of luck here.

To correct a repeated error, motherboard do not have indents in the back. You use standoffs to keep the motherboard from touching the case not to fit SSDs. The indents that Cretae refers to are stamped in the backs of most modern cases to fit the SATA SSDs.

From Velox specs:
Storage Drive Bays: Max 3 HDD slots and 2 SSD slots/Max 8 SSD Slots

If ya do need 4x HDD try popping that question to DS Sales and see whats possible.
