Thanks.

Honestly I had to remove everything and drilled it out. The metal shavings would get on all your components if you don't take out your system and do it from scratch.

I was hoping someone in here would be able to help me out with a fan mounting problem I was having on my HAF-X. When I was installing my new Noctua exhaust fan, I decided to flip the top two fans to make them exhaust. The problem with mounting Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans in the top slots of a HAF-X is that their blades tend to clip the top of the frame. At first I tried to solve this by getting a few stir sticks, breaking them into thirds, and stacking the segments two high under the edges, and screwing the fans down that way. That worked for a long while, but when I had flipped them a few days ago, I screwed the back one in too tight and it caught and broke a fan blade. I'm wondering what else I can do to give them a bit of elevation above the frame. I guess maybe I could cut up my old Steelseries foam/cloth mousepad. But it makes a very nice coaster, and I'd rather not destroy it to make supplies. Does anyone have a better solution? I really like the Bitfenix Spectre Pros, and they seem like the best 200mm fans on the market, but this mounting problem concerns me, so I don't know if I'd need to switch to a worse model.

One of the best 200mm fans. All 200mm fans are crap. That's my advice. go to 120mm

So more noise and less airflow is better? And you somehow think a 120mm fan would fit in a 200mm fan port?

A brief run down on 120mm vs. 200mm fans:

120mm:
Bitfenix Spectre Pro PWM 120mm: 26.1dB; 70.52 CFM ±10%
Corsair SP120-PWM Quiet Edition 120mm: Noise level 23 dB; 37.85 CFM
Noctua NF-P12 120mm: 19.8 dB; 54.33 CFM

200mm:
Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm: 27.5 dB; 148.72 CFM ±10%
Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm: 19 dBA, 110 CFM
NZXT FS-200RB: 20.16 dBA, 89.5 CFM

So, I decided to cut up my mousepad for padding on the fan edges. After trimming a few pieces, and putting them next to the stir stick segments, it looks like they're the exact same height. I think I'll replace the stick segments the current top fan is mounted on with them when I reinstall the Cooler Master 200mm fan this case came with originally.

Thanks.

When I removed the HDD cage from my HAF X I drilled the bottom rivets out with a hand drill and oriented the case so that any filings tended to fall away from the components plus I put a lot of sellotape on the inside edges of the cage to catch dust. Every time I removed a rivet I hoovered inside the space. To remove the top rivets (which weren't accessible with the drill) I used a 1/2 inch wide hacksaw blade and cut the heads off then popped the remains through into the empty drive bay above.The HAF X HDD cage also had 2 centre stiffening rods which just screw in so I removed these then I was able to bend it slightly to make it easier to get out.
Took about 30 minutes total.

Oh ok. Can I do it without a drill so that there will be no metal fillings that will be scattered inside the case?

Not that I can think of. You can cut the heads off the bottom rivets with a hacksaw but the filing will fall outside the case either way. If you remove the front fan and prop your case so that the cage is at the bottom, gravity will take care of the filings, the sellotape and hoover will do the rest. The important thing is not to rush.

Well, if I cut the bottom rivets without opening up the side panel of the case like you said the fillings will fall outside the case, meaning nothing will scatter inside, right?
