Looks like you can...but, you should measure it just to be safe.

Is that a gateway? or just a gateway case? it looks like you probably could, it just wouldnt screw in very tight.

yes its a gateway and would i have it blowwing in or succking out. since the front is kinda closed it can't really suck in, so i thought pushing out was the best. what do u guys think

Is the fan in the back the exhaust? If so, then have that one as the intake. You want a balance of air pressure inside.
