I've thought about it.... but never made plans to do so.... I don't think it will affect the strength of the tray that much....

interesting idea you have there. i dont believe it will reduce the strength of the mobo tray that much. the construction of this case is solid. anyone wanna try it? or send me a cm 690 so i can try it? haha it shouldnt effect it too much. considering its on the "top 1/2" of the tray.. and the weight of the mobo is pretty "spread out" over the tray with exception the heatsink being on the top half.. but i dont think its enough to bend the tray... not in this case anyway... if it was like thin aluminum, probably

kink? howd that get there?

Im worried about strength, especially on mine as theres a kink in the mother board tray already.

Mainly I want to do this as I want to upgrade to a noctura but I may go water cooling not long after or just for reseating the cooler if it needs doing. has anyone done this?

I have an Asus P5N-D.

A lot of people choose to make the cutout. The mb rests on the posts that in the CPU area are mostly near the rim giving it extra support anyway. When you place your case upright there is no real stress on that part of the tray because gravity just pulled it away.

Here is a link to a picture of the tray cut away in a Cosmos S. Not the same as a 690 but you get the idea. He also did a very cool black paint job to the exterior.

Basically the case was dropped in the factory and bent the chassi. I had to take a hammer to the corner and put my full weight on it to bend it back so I could get the back side panel on. Unfortunately I didnt notice this till after I hd cut the fan grills out so its not like I could take it back. When it was dropped it put it out of line by about 10mm till I fixed it. seems fine now.
