Possible to remove the bottom of the SG08?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
WHY?

Because the ASROCK Z87E-ITX has an on board mSATA slot on the bottom of the board !
It looks like there is some back-plate on the bottom of the Silverstone case.
If I had to replace the mSATA card, it will be 1000x easier to remove the motherboard back-plate cut-out on the bottom of the case.

If this just a cute design and not a functional back-plate, then I'll be stuck removing the motherboard and everything just to get to the mSATA card?

I'll hope the mSATA Samsung 840 or Crucial M4 will never need to be replaced.

Thanks!

There is no CPU backplate, that's just the underside of the case.

Ok thanks.

Sorry for the wishful thinking.

Use a dremel to cut the space out the. Add a simple door for access and so the board isn't exposed.

Thanks for the suggestion and I'll give it a try.
I'll add simple screws to the existing material to seal access to the board.
