im guessing a rivet? if you dont know what a rivet is it looks like something no screwdriver head could possibly ever get it out. but if its one of those youd either drill it or buy a rivet gun. but i think when i was obsessed with raven cases that the build log i watched he actually cut it and rearranged it and only used 3 and also set it a different way.

yes, that's what im trying to accomplish too. Its most likely a rivet, i'll look further into it though

YOu can to remove the screws that are on the inside edges of the case to remove the thick U-shaped aluminum frame that encases the case proper.
Once that's done you will have access to all of the rivets that hold the drive cage in place. Drill them out, and you're done.

I know this is a super old thread, but for the benefit of anyone who stumbles across this... you need a rivet gun and rivets to replace the ones you've drilled out.
