Hey Puttrik,
Did your power supply line up with mounting holes ? and was your top hard drive cage very difficult to remove? by that I mean the 500R I had the top cage was wedged in so tightly pulling it out scratched the hell out of it.

They didnt line up perfectly, which annoyed me but after some forcing its secured.

Didnt have any problem with the top hard drive cage.

Don't use the fractal 140 fan horizontally, it has sleeve bearing and it will make an annoying ticking sound and the life span will decrease dramatically

Puttrik,

If you are interested I figured out why the holes don't line up. The rubber pads that the power supply sits on are too thick raising it up about 2mm too high.
What I did was peeled off the pads and replaced them with some pads about half as thick and now the power supply lines up perfectly with the mounting holes.

This is a dumb question, but how did you guys mount your SSDs? I got mine on there, but its not quite right because the little plastic side nobs meant to reduce noise for regular HDs are pushing the SSD. Did you guys remove those? I tried to figure it out but the holders are pretty flimsy, didn't want to break it.
