Had done this before i changed my hdd cages. Look To my pics gallery, there you can See it . Before rebuilding, the max temp from my wd black was 39 degrees Celsius.

Hmm all are 3.5".. I've placed the third one under the DVD rom in a 5.25 to 3.5 convertor!
is the 3.5" HDD cage easy to remove? Just screws? If so i can place it near the back as you have, but tell me, the opening has two slim slits on the side, are they good enough for airflow if i put two 80 mm's as intake?, or maybe i can direction the HDD towards the back so the air flows on top of them.

Dont wanna make new holes in my new casing tongue.gif

Hm, first, only the 2,5" Cage is fixed with 2 screws on top and 4 screws at the bottom. This one can be removed very easyly. The 3,5" cage is fixed with rivets. If you want to change the 3,5" cage position, you first must remove the rivets with a drill. (4 rivets from the front (behind the front panel) and 4 from bottom. then you have to drill 4 new 4,1mm holes (for 4mm rivets, 3-6 mm long) in the bottom, where you want to fix the 3,5" cage.

extra you need a rivet pliers. if you don't have these, you can also use very strong bouble sided tape or mounting strips. (prefered - because they hold in an area from -40 degrees to 90 degrees celsius).

The airflow from fans to the HDDs is better from the sides, because in the back is the hot swap plate mounted. (so as I mounted the 3,5 Bay would be perfect.

if there is place enough between the rear of ODD and the single HDD in 5,25" bay and side from 3,5" bay, you could put another fan between there. then you get cool air from outside thropugh both 80mm fans - that goes tthrough the 3,5" cage to the extra fan and that will cool down your extra HDD and the ODD.

hope this could help a little

ps. one thing I've forgotten. the closing mechanism from the 3,5" hdd brackets then doesn't work. my HDD is just slided in and fits with clicking into the sata hot swap.

You could remove the 2.5 drive bay and salvage a 3.5 bay from another case and screw it in place

or as wthenshaw wrote. just remove the 2,5" bay. buy (or you have another) a 3.%2 cage and fix it where the 2,5" was. then put the one HDD in 5,25" bay into the new cage (perhaps another from the front hotswap) then 2 Hdds will be cooled and just one from the front will be cooled passiv. the hottest one should be then in the active cooled area.

im getting a XB as soon as i sell my wii biggrin.gif
btw, for 140mm front fans, i was thinking of bitfenix spectre pro white leds, and as for the back 120mm the AF120 quiet. for 80mm fans tho, what to get? I just want them for my planned mods to be actually functional smile.gif
so yeah, for 80mm fans is there something out there which is full black/dark as possible all around and be also quiet?

140mm spectre pro are good choise.

possible 80m fans (full black) in various speeds

- Be Quiet! Shadow Wings (about 8-9€ each fan)
low - 8,4 dB(A), max 1.400 RPM, 25,1 m³/h, 5 - 12 V, 3-Pin
mid - 15,8 dB(A), max 2.000 RPM, 43,9 m³/h, 5 - 12V, 3-Pin

- Be uiet Silent Wings 2 (newer but expensive - about 15€ each fan)
14,5 dB(A), 2.000 RPM, 44,2 m³/h, 4 - 14 V, 3-pin and reducing adapters, anti vibration holes

as 120 rear possible alternative the Akasa Apache (all black) - very quiet and good airflow (my build in rear fan) - about 12€

Stripped the haf xb down (again) tidied up the wiring even more and tie clipped all the wire under the m/board tray so i can run the braided red wiring up between the bays at the front. Ordered the red braided wires for the i/o plugs, audio plug, 3 pin fan cable's and also ordered some red sata cables. The more i look in my case the more i think i want another 7870 to fill the left side better smile.gif
