Need some help from Antec DF 85 owners.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just ordered an Antec DF 85 and i was wondering if anyone has attempted to change how the HDD's are oriented. i would like the cables to not be seen if possible.

I dont think you can BUT. you can get 5.25 to 3.5 adapter And this will allow you to mount it in the 5.25 bay so that the cables are out of sight.

I am not terribly to worried about it but it would have been nice. My current case can't do that either so no worries there. Thanks
