post #1331 of 1907
Does anyone else find fitting the doors back on this case to be maddening??? I tend to get into the case a few times a month, and I'll be damned if putting the doors back onto the Elysium isn't the most difficult of any case I've ever had.

Makes me dread having to mess with it, but I had to go in tonight to fit the new Samsung 840 smile.gif

Yup, know what you mean. Those guides sometimes don't catch and a corner will be sticking out.













Here's a little mod I made. New psu required me to relocate my fan controller. Well, ditched the hot-swap feature from the front panel i/o.







A little hacking and the fan controller face plate fits. I over did the cuts a tad but I had no choice. I should be able to cover it up easily and since its at the top, it won't be that noticeable.

It came out ok. I'm going to tidy it up with some black silicone. Super glued it and it works fine.

Yeah, giving the misus (with one in the oven) some time off. She helps clean up and at the same time makes a mess too tongue.gif


A little satin black vinyl wrap to cover the mistakes and it looks good:
