I was looking at the case seeing rivits here and there and I seen there were screws. 21 screws to be exact, take them out and with just a wee bit of flexing the outside "band" the whole of the inside pops right out, as one whole unit. (only two of the screws are sort of hidden from plain sight and they are the front two, that are in the stand off channels you see in photo on front left as you look at it. ) very easy. 6 of them have counter sunk heads the 3 in back and 3 bottom left where inner frame attaches to the fan mount on bottom.

I have NO idea why they did not secure the HDD tray mounts with screws, but no, they used rivits, which when thinking about and how never every case I have laid eyes on has removable HDD trays and mounts. I scratch my head wondering why they did not use the same mounts like the fan mounts, side on end under the lip and on set screw on other side. but no.....

like I have said I'm in no hurry, but will try to sort out how I want to build and what to change with the case. we shall see.

I have Case-Labs. Craftsmanship of the case is amazing. The overall design I say is very simple, rather then pure ugly. The cube cases due have allot of size issues. I can't fit most of my water cooling components inside the case. Which is starting to really annoy me.

Should done a bit more research before buying it. Maybe I'll switch to Win909. The only thing holding me back is the lack of 5.25 drive slot. I need to have one for my Blu-Ray drive.

btw, How sound proof is tempered glass cases? Never had one.

Get a 5.25" USB enclosure, problem solved. thumb.gif

Isn't Caselabs cases are way better than In Win 909?

actually the tempered glass does a surprisingly good job at dampening the sound because its so thick. and i agree with you on the case labs cases i like them especially because i can hold a lot of stuff in them but as a signature/show piece without a lot of modding i prefer the in win cases. oh and as for the 5.2 inch drive bay i just stuck an external slim dvd drive in the little area under the intake and it matches the color of the case and almost looks like it belongs their

they are not better per say they are just different the in win case is all about somewhat flashy style and the caselabs cases are a good looking with the proper mods imo and they hold more stuff. its a little hard to compare the two as they target the same general market of high end cases but at the same time are on two different sides of that market. usability and aesthetics.

I'm sure if Caselabs throw a tempered glass on the side panel, it would look just as flashy as the Inwin? I thought the In Win looks good only because they stuck a piece of tempered glass on the side panels?

Plus I don't see why you can't compare these 2 cases? Theyre "cases", physical objects, not sound quality / signature in headphones.

I don't think you have much of an eye for design buddy.

Caselabs' cases are by no means bad looking, but they have a very utilitarian look to them, that wouldn't go away just by throwing on a glass side panel. The 909 Is a much more stylish design, that clean curved aluminium uni-body is what makes it.

Functionality wise, the Caselabs has the better cases. But aesthetic wise, The In Win 9XX cases win hands down.

There is no such thing as a "best case". There are however cases that best suit the requirements of the end user.

But a lot of people said Caselabs cases are the "Best" case thumb.gif

Yes, a lot of people that look at them from a certain perspective, there is no such thing as a case that's the best at everything. In the same way you don't use a formula 1 car to go off-roading. rolleyes.gif

A few things caselabs cases aren't great for:

-Design: See previous post.

-Space efficiency: Caselabs cases are massive even for the amount of hardware you can put into them.

-Availability: They're hard to get at reasonable prices anywhere outside of the USA, and take a long time to ship.

What about the CoolerMaster Cosmos 2 ? If I get that, I'm p lanning to get the thick big clear side panel that made by MNPCTech which cost $150 if you know what I'm talking about.
