Getting mixed answers on this...
 
For the DG7x series( ie dg 73) I will be getting a 1080 hybrid and a clc 280, will these both fit easily in this case? I saw the video about the clc 280 and reversing fans and mounting on the front, so then will the hybrid radiator fit on the top?
 
Thanks.

The CLC 280 will most likely not fit up top and will have to be mounted on the front due to its size. For the Hybrid cooler, the radiator would, therefore, have to go on on the top. However, be careful because you may not be able to mount it without a couple modifications. Some people say that you cannot mount a radiator up top, personally, I managed to squeeze a slim 240 Rad because my Ram sticks are quite low. You may be able to mount it in the slot where all the cables are so that it will not interfere with the motherboard. You may be able to make the 120mm radiator fit on the rear although I haven't tried it, so maybe someone else has some experience with that.
 
I was only able to screw one side of my radiator in but that isn't an issue for me as Ram acts as great supports.

I have the DG-75 version and have both the evga clc 240 and 280 coolers. The 280 really on fits in the front. Technically there are holes at the top for a 280 and 240, but depending on your motherboard. The heatsink that goes around the cpu could interfere with them. If the hybrid card has a 120 cooler. Then you will want to mount the 280 in the front and I would suggest a push/pull config to get good airflow and put the hybrid cooler in the back.

I am thinking pull in from front with clc 280, push out back with the hybrid...For the top fans i am thinking exhaust?

I have mine setup as pull atm. Going to try push and see if I notice a difference. But I am also using some be quiet fans.

youve got it. the general rule of thumb is front/side/bottom as inlet and top/back exhaust.
