Yeah, that's true. But it's the XB's mounting mechanisms that seem to be a bit non-standard (or semi-standard). For instance, I tried to fit a Lian Li 2.5-to-3.5" adapter in the rear drive cage, but the rails you're supposed to use didn't match the screw holes on the adapter (neither position- nor size-wise). No biggie, as the XB (at least the EVO version) comes with a plastic 2x 2.5" caddy that fits perfectly, but still - makes me a bit cautious about assuming things will just fit with cases that use tool-less mounting.

Anyway, I guess I'll take the plunge and buy the nicest-looking 3.5-to-5.25" bracket from eBay. It's not like they're particularly expensive or anything.

Sure thing.

Here's a 3.5" device in the X-Dock bay without the caddy:



Here it is in the caddy. I had to remove the anti-vibration pins because they were too big for the screw holes. You can see two of the device's screw holes line up nicely with the caddy's:



But not if you try to close the front panel:



Of course, the front panel would have to be removed, otherwise you can't access the device, but if you do that, then there's nothing keeping the caddy in the bay anymore - it's the front panel that locks it into place. I tried to pry the front panel off, but couldn't do it without breaking the plastic tabs on the hinges, sorry.

That said, if you do take the front panel off and manage to fix the caddy to the case somehow (maybe screw it to the sides of the X-Dock cage) and your device's screw holes line up with those on the caddy and you can live with the empty space around the device in the front (or find a way to cover it), then I guess it would be possible to put a 3.5" device in the X-Dock bay.

Hope this helps.

The caddy clips into a metal assembly on the case itself, not the front plastic panel. The front panel can be easily removed by pushing in on the two tabs near the bottom of the case at the same time. That will allow you to free that side of the panel. Then do the same on the other side, then you can remove the top most clips easily. Then simply pivot the whole panel up a bit and you can remove the final top clip.

Why not get a USB card reader? Seems like a lot more work to make that 3.5" drive fit externally.

I'm thinking of getting the new(ish) Scythe Kama Panel for my build. Haven't decided if i can fit it anywhere yet though. I think it's Kama Panel 3.1

No, I meant the front cover of the caddy itself, not the case. Sorry if that was unclear, English is not my first language.

Sure, a USB reader is another option. But A) I already have the 3.5" reader, and B) I like to keep the clutter of external devices around the case to a minimum. I don't care if it's more work, if the outcome is neater.

My bad, I totally misunderstood what you were asking.

If you use that you might as well as get rid of the front IO because that includes a lot of what you'd need but the 2 channel fan controller kind of limits you.
post #7900 of 10491

Lol, front IO is longgggg gone in my build. I wouldn't use the fan controller on the Kama Panel. Much prefer my Aquaero 6 =)

 

 

No more front IO ^^

 

Unless i use this for the USB....

 

 

Here's where my Vandal Switches will be
