Define XL help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just got my Fractal Design Define XL today and I want to remove the top HDD cage to improve airflow but I can't seem to get it out. I see two thumb screws that I have removed but it doesn't want to come out. It says that it can be re oriented or removed but it seems like its held in by rivets.

That, my friend, is false advertising then if that is the case (not literal).

The top HDD cage can be removed and rotated. Not sure what problem you're having but it definitely can.

It's the same mechanism as shown in this video at 3:55:
