As I didn't want to completely remove it from my case (you never know when you have to pop in a disk), I decided to remove the 2.5" drive bay and place it there. Using some laying around parts I created a small platform for it to sit on, so now I have both 5.25 bays free and whenever that once in a year day comes that I need to insert a disk, I just pop off the side panel and I'm good to go.

Whould love to see the modded side panel to work with the relocated 5.25" components.

I thought about ways to mod the side panel, but to make it look decent, I would have to make sure the front of the drive sticks out slightly through the side panel, to make it allign nicely. That however would mean that you can't remove the side panel anymore as it would push the drive out of the way as well. To make an opening in the panel and have the drive slightly pushed back wouldn't look nice imo, and as I hardly use the drive anyway, I kind of like the idea that the drive is hidden inside the case, out of view. smile.gif

Thanks for the suggestion on the front led guys. It seems more complicated then I thought so I'll leave it as is. I want to start gaming on this thing.

So far, filling it up was a chore but the case's small size made it straight forward. The only issue I had was the fpaa connector interfered w/ the koolance slot pass through port (bottom one). a few extensions and that solved the issue. Also, the left side panel didn't want to close due to the rear Monsta rad, a bit of persuasion and it cleared biggrin.gif. All panels are now in place and screwed on. Lastly, i had to remove the top retaining screw of the each dvi connector to clear the rad. Its still pretty secured w/ one and I have some slack on the cables to make sure it doesn't pull. I have a ton of cleaning to do so I only got as far as firing it up and configuring Surround.
