The good news (for me anyway) is that I got the one without the optical drive. The Streamcom site has notes saying that you have to use a right angle SATA/power connector with the drive tray, so they think it will fit.One surprise for me was the optical slot becomes useless with the Z240 installed. The drive tray and power supply will not quite fit by a few mm.
I have the Panasonic UJ240. I recall the drive itself being slightly longer than the tray. I haven't tried recently, so I will give the right angle SATA cable a shot.

I wonder if you really have to squish the Z240 as close to the back of the case as you can. I think I have the Z240 almost as far back as you can. Maybe with a little pushing I could get it back one more heat sink slat, but it looked like that was going to end up rubbing the power cable funny.
source of that information?As I understand fitting a gfx card in the case and also powering it is a problem using the 240w power supply..
Do you playback HDR files using MPC-HC and MadVR ? As you hopefully know the havy processing done by MAdvr is mostly done on the GPUsource of that information?
240w is more than enough and modern integrated graphics can easily manage 4K (as for HDR, this has nothing to do with processing power)
I run my 4K HTPC with integrated intel CPU and an external brick power supply, which is probably much less than 240W
Of course, a gaming card will need more power, but that's not the scenario here.
