Freaking awesome! I know what I'm doing tonight then, lol. I just need to find a way to mount my hard drives now. I don't want to use the huge cages.. I may have to make something custom.

When you flip the font there will be a void under the 5.25" bay where you maybe able to hide some drives, depending on what you have. My main drives are all NAS, so I have my 2.5" drives down next the PSU.

hehe, that's exactly the way i fixed my fancontroller. And you only need half of the velcro on 1 side in the length and 1 small piece on 1 of the sides of the hole wink.gif

That might be a good idea. I went home and drilled out the rivets during lunch, then flipped the panel, but I'll have to play with the placement of the hard drive after I get home again tonight. I do have a "full size" internal hard drive though, so I don't think it's the same height as the gap that is under the cage.

You know... at first I kinda chuckled at that... But that might not be a bad idea, as long as I can make sure that the optical cage is good and sturdy, since the only spot that it connects to is the front panel now.

Well, I'll probably use your idea, thanks! Haha

And actually, now that I think about it, I might be able to put the hard drive in the same space as the fan controller, and just velcro it to the bottom of the case. Since the fan controller only takes up a small portion of that cage, and the hard drive is smaller than the inside of the cage anyway, I can just mount it right inside.. I just need to find something to put underneath the edges of the cage so keep it from moving and flexing in the back.

Now that's a nice way to hide it! How about throw some black foam in the back? You could tuck it inside of the bay and have it support it without having to see it.
