I don't want to trim the hump, I want to get rid of it, completely! tongue.gif

My basic idea is to to cut out the "hump", then cut out the acrylic window a bit bigger than the opening in the panel, mill away a cm or two in width of the edge of the acrylic enough so the acrylic comes flush with metal and then either glue it, screw or rivet it on the panel.

Same goes for the side panels.

Clearance in the back is a real problem in this case, especially on side panels, the top one has a few mm of clearance but the sides doesn't.

I'll find a way.

Luckily it doesn't bother me.

It's because of the tool less design which only grips the drive from one side

Why wasnt this though of during the development of the case, it looks horrible, Ill just have to manually install the drive if possible.

Bit of foam, rubber, hell, a wedge of paper, in the opposite side before locking will fix it.

Yeah the hump on the top panel has to go for sure, and definately mill the acrylic edge like you said. (What im going to do next time around)

But as for the side panels, don't cut out the raised part of the panel, just the honeycomb. So the acrylic will be flush on the inside face of the panel. That way there will be nothing getting in the way.

EDIT: I drew a picture too!

Congrats on your first build, sounds like it's not even complete! A good PC isn't ever complete, there should be room for improvement thumb.gif

Hello:

Will I be able to attach this 200mm fan to the upper mesh of the case?. I don´t know if screw hole positions are standard in 200mm fans.

these are the only 200mm fans available where I live

I doubt those will fit, you could make your own holes easily enough.

I would however recommend you not to use a 200mm fan unless you run a multi gpu setup on air cooling. You the fan does next to nothing, 1-2C increase or decrease in temps.
