HAF X and removal of HDD cage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I got my HAF X in the mail today and noticed that the HDD cage is secured to the bottom of the caes by some kind of screw, which I could probably remove if I gave it the effort. But I also noticed that the HDD cage seems to be glued to the 5.25 bay compartment.

Is it even possible to remove just the HDD cage? And is there an easy way to do it without modding?

First way:
Drill out the rivets holding the bottom HDD cage into place, you will need a carbide drill bit. The stock bits that come with the drill do not really do a good job of drilling into it because the metal of the case will dull them. I recommend you use a 1/8" bit.

Second way:

You can, you just need a rivet gun.
