Yep, that is my main issue with the case. That should have been a 3.5 inch cage, noo reason for it to be a 2.5 inch cage. Maybe they can release a separate add on cage, or is that not possible because of the screw holes?

I haven't noticed any detrimental effects from trimming the tabs. I don't even know why they're there, to be honest.

The front panel isn't what I would call load bearing, by any means. Why there plastic protrudes there.. I have no idea. maybe to force the fans to draw air from outside the case. I don't know. But I do know that my 140's fit now and the front panel sets flush.

Does anyone have a picture of a Micro-ATX mobo fitted inside the case, this case looks great just like all the other CM cases. Looking to see if theres enough space to get some more hard drives in there.

If that tab was solid going across I would maybe see that, but they're not.

 

Maybe they put those tabs there to give us system builders a hard time.

 

Thanks for your response, tomorrow I'll do the trimming.

Why did I just picture a guy in a white lab coat, thick glasses, and wild hair yelling "Damn you system builders"! All whilst shaking his fist in the air?
