Anyone has pictures or can tell me how one of the 5.25 drive cages look like installed ?

post #1 of 5

Hello!
I am hoping to get one like this maybe:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18273/cpa-627/Akasa_Cagestor_C31_Triple_525_Drive_Bay_to_Quad_35_HDD_Expansion_Kit_AK-HDA-07.html#blank

But I am hoping that I can still keep the HAF932 drive face plates so that the fan does not just look all ugly face front.
I cannot find any pictures where someone has it installed though.
Thanks for any help.

Looks to be identical to the Xigmatek 4 in 3 HDD cage, just a different fan.

I have the Xigmatek one in my 500r and the 5.25" bay covers hide the cage. The cage should line up/lock in place with your tool less latches and won't protrude out. Your front panel should have plenty of space behind it and should cover the fan.

Hope that helps thumb.gif

Excellent! That is exactly what I wanted to hear. I thought it would look too ugly otherwise but since it does not look like the Scythe Kama Bay , I wanted to make sure.
Thanks a ton man! thumb.gif

Apologies for the potato pic ... and dust biggrin.gif. That's what the cage looks like in place with no fan on. If you can visualize a 25mm thick fan on it, theres still plenty of room for the front panel. You should have a fair amount of allowance in your case from what I recall from my friend's 932.

I suggest a magnetic screwdriver or gum when you install HDDs into it. It can be a pain. I'm also hoping that you're putting HDDs in that you don't want to swap in and out because you'd have to remove the entire cage every time to access it. That's probably the only gripe I have regarding it.

I hope the visual helps redface.gif

It sure does amigo. I am ordering it as it is exactly what I wanted. I am not even sure if it will end up just being an input fan cage since I am still deciding how to deal with my too many hard drives but I like it.
Thanks for taking the time!
