Build Advice I need to fit NZXT x62 into Fractal Define R6, without losing the 5.25 Bay. Doesn't seem possible. [[Graphics Inside]] A different Case Maybe? Help!

I thought it was easier to just diagram it out. [Image embedded below]

Additional info. This is for a Ryzen 3950x Video Editing/After Effects Workstation build, so I figure best to stick with NZXT x62's 280mm Rads and no smaller. I've never built a system by myself before (had help last time) and it was tough enough choosing the mobo (Asrock x570 Creator). I suppose I could go 240mm Rads at the top, but I've read that it can interfere with accessing the Ram. (Also here is a thread from last year where someone had a similar inquiry to mine, except I need the 5.25 bays)

I think ultimately a slightly larger case would serve me well. My mobo has headers for...

1 x Front Panel Type C USB 3.2 Gen2 Header
2 x USB 3.2 Gen1 Headers
1 x USB 2.0 Header (Supports 2 USB 2.0 ports)

and the Define R6 seemed perfectly equipped to support those.
