Has anyone here modded the drive cage/front panel of their 300R to fit a +220mm rad? If so, mind posting pics or steering me to a link? I finally got that extra $$ and after reading reviews I'm going with the Swiftech H220. With my current setup I'm going to have to mod the font panel to fit that 270mm rad!!! Thanks!

yes you can use only the top hdd cage. there are 2 holes(4?) drilled in the odd cage and 2 thumb screws at the back of the top hdd cage. all 3 cages have slots and tabs to slide the cages together. the bottom of all 3 cages have female slots, the top of both hdd cages have male tabs that slide into those groves.

2 thumbscrews holding the hdd cage to the motherboard. 2 or 4 of your own screws holding the hdd cage to the odd cage after sliding the hdd cage into the odd cage grooves.
shouldnt be a problem AT ALL.

Gonna have to cut part of the metal out of the bottom 5.25 to fit that in there because the holes for the fans are right at the metal.
