What would you need the space of the 2.5" for?
Anyhows, the cage should come out fairly easily; just four pop rivets.

The 2.5" hdd cage on the bottom level is held in by 4 screws on the bottom and 2 screws on the top underneath the mobo tray. So you have to remove the motherboard to access the top two screws to remove the cage.

And there are two sets of mounting holes you can use: the stock location, and one set farther back towards the 80mm fan location. Just FYI.

Thanks for info guys ! I just didn't see the point in having these 4 2.5" in the middle of the box.... Capacity wise it is a waste also . Anyway, time will tell :-)

just a basic xspc loop, with the dual bay pump/res combo. The raystorm with the dual 120mm rad, along with some mayhem blueberry dye... next up imma buy some matching 1/8 sleeves for the psu, and some gold compression fittings. I plan on upgrading to a better pump and block soon or later.. i just really wanted something now because this stock intel heatsink sucks way too much.

I'm debating on if i want to delid my 3770k and change TIM or not.. seems easy enough.. but the thought of possibly ruining it scares me

DO NOT de-lid your processor if you've never done it before. It's way more risk than its worth and sure it may seem easy, but would you wanna risk breaking your $320 processor? Temps will be fine, especially under WC.

If I were you, I'd change out that XSPC tubing if you got the kit, tends to cloud up rather quickly vs their retail tubing. Go with Durelene if you want to use Mayhem's dye. Got lots of recommendations to do that when I was working on mine. Here's a link to Sidewinders that sells it here in the US. http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/othertubing.html

I wouldn't chance it like others have said unless you know someone that has done this to at least a few of them successfully.

 

This is the reason I didn't go with Ivy Bridge which I originally wanted to (and went instead with a Sandy Bridge i7 2700k) after finding out about Intel's use of TIM.

If I remembered when I ordered my parts, I think they're based in Indiana, but if you pick 2-3 day Priority shipping, it should get to you by early next week. I ordered mine on a Thursday and arrived on the following Monday.

For everyone else: My HAF XB (take 4) delivered on 1-30-13 and this is the best case by far of the 4 so I'll be starting to populate this case with hardware starting tomorrow.  I didn't take a photo of the case box out of not jinxing myself - lol!  IMO Cooler Master better step up their game as far as quality control is concerned with these HAF XB cases - I shouldn't have had to go through 4 deliveries to find a suitable enough built case to use and keep.  I have other Cooler Master cases that were fine on first delivery from various vendors/shipping methods.

I was going to get a sandy 2700k but my microcenter was sold out =( ... so i took what i could get since i had just sold my i7 920 computer and needed a replacement asap
