If that doesn't work though, they sell individual HDD trays on their website for $1.99 USD. I imagine shipping to your part of the world makes this significantly less desirable though. Only other idea I have though is to look around at local pc parts retail stores and see if anyone sells a similar part that might fit. I would take the broken drive bay with me to compare width and height though. These types of drive bays are usually all made to similar standards so its possible you could find one made for another case that could fit well enough.

Good luck!

Thanks for the response. Yeah, the cost of shipping a pretty trivial component of the case doesn't really justify the effort. Might as well try my luck with some superglue and just yank it out by the tray and not the handles. With how tight the bays are, you practically don't need the locks anyway.

Speaking of similar parts, I have a dozen or so spare trays from my Cosmos II, though... better-quality, but I'm quite certain it wouldn't fit in the bays. Lol.

Yes that's my setup. I know it's because i'm running crossfire and without crossfire my gpu isn't even gping past 65C on 80% fan speed or so. I bet my motherboard (MSI z77a-g45) is not causing my front fans to spin at actual full speed but according to the msi control panel my fans is spinning @ 1700 RPM so maybe it is going at full speed. I have the 3x intake fans connected to my motherboard and my exhaust fan to the power connectors. So Should i rather get a fan controller and let it spin at full speed then when I game and off when doing normal browsing and watching video etc etc.

I also tried to take off the front panel to give more airflow but that doesn't help

You could always cut the bottom out and put a couple fans as intake down there.

Can I maybe take one of the front 140mm fans that came with the case as the intake at the bottom by just removing on of the hdd and adding the the fan there? I will let it lay there for now without modifying anything to test first. If you think about it it's 1 less HDD to make things hoter and 1 extra fan to add cool air so almost like I'm reducing the case temps but should see if that works. is there a way to have the 2 HDD at the back or should it get to warm?

I have a download pc and can add the drive to that system and map the network drive so that i can still use it and have some more breathing room.

I will test tonight with the fan as intake and exhaust

Sup guys,
Just joined and wanted to contribute. Been sussing this forum for awhile now and currently just finished my build.
Do share opinions and suggestions, I was suggesting to fully water cool but.. honestly no need.
With decent good temps from the h100i and 3x 120's blowing directly over the cards, Ive stressed it like a mofo and pretty surprised at the results.

-Just a quick run through what ive done
Sprayed the front and top covers
Sprayed the grills on top n front
Full demci dust filter kit and cut and customized the front filter original housing
Sprayed and altered the ROG OC panel
Cut and assembled Mirror on bottom, added flashing.

Pretty simple and neat. Kept it lit white just the give it that clean look.

Was about to say why do you have a GPU laying on your bottom floor and realized it was a mirror, nice effect there. thumb.gif
