I had to remove it in order to fit another fan at the front of the case towards the bottom.
I Also had to move my HDD cage back a few inches.

Any idea why it's there in the first place ( marked with a red X )

Fractal appear to go with refining previous designs while keeping functionality/options. My old R2 mini has 6 removable trays on matx.

I can't really work out much from the pic, but i guess it's just a possible option if you opt for passive intake, or maybe a short rad on the front. Looks like it takes a 140mm also? Would be make sense there also.

They also do 120mm adapters, fan fitting to hard drive. So yeah, options.

It's just to give you options. If you only want 2 front fans you can leave it in, if you want 3 or a massive radiator/AIO then remove it. Same with HD cage etc.
