Antec Sonata III

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright so im just wondering if i can remove the bar on the Antec Sonata without affecting the case in anyway. Will the case be fine if i remove the metal bar?

OH and btw. im modding this case for airflow and the bar seems to be in the way.

It will be fine as long as you think the PSU will still be supported enough. Are there brackets on that back side that help hold it?

Also, when you remove structural pieces you are greatly increasing your chances of vibrations or rattling, especially in a case like the Sonata that is designed for quietness.

I don't get how that is getting in the way of airflow, though.

what you could do is cut a 45 degree bend and bend the bar to the other side and stabalize it that way.
