The black part with the holes is not supposed to go into the 5 1/4" bay, Mav!!!!

Just teasing you. I imagine you mean the black "flaps" and not the mesh front.

The 840 is generally very tight there. Requires a lot of patience and increasing gentle pressure.
(A drop, and I mean a drop!!! of WD40 does some wonders.)

Will try but looks very doubtful...I removed the cage itself and am only using the front mesh part and the fan holder as I need a bit of airflow around that area. But the damn thing just wont go in....I wonder if this is a Lian Li only device?

Its like if one side goes in the other side will not...

Can you make a photo? Pref one from the side showing how far in you get, and one from behind the cage to show how the LianLi Bay slides in.
Artistic photos are not needed, just as visual reference.

(You did bend up or cut out the "lips" on the inside of the ATCS 840's cage?

Dont need to cut the lip on the inside of the drive cage as it does not reach till there. I am only using the front part as a fan bay. The rest has been removed...will add a pic this evening. I think I got the placement of the fan holder the other way around, maybe that could be an issue, dont know.

At the end some quick benchmarks:

testcpu.th.jpg

testgpu.th.jpg



CPU TEST - LINX
Highest core temp during test (cores at 100%): 54 degrees (about twenty less respect to my old air heatsink, Cooler Master V8)


GPU TEST - 3D MARK
Highest core temp during test (core at 100%): 40 degrees (pratically the temperature I had before in idle with my Accelero GTX Xtreme Pro)





I'm very happy about the final result and the temps my system have!! Hope you enjoy!!

This one.., the black front part just wont slide into the bay area..the rest of it goes in no problem..trying this on the top 3 drive bays.

I have that exact bay in mine. That ATCS is extremely tight up there. I actually have it starting on the fourth bay down. I have an optical drive, a card reader, and a fan speed controller above it. Can you fit just an optical drive in any of the top bays? Some ATCSs are too tight for this. My friend has one with no issues. Mine is super tight, you have to have it lined up perfectly. There are some screws holding the whole drive cage together on both sides. You can loosen those, then, you can use some pressure to kind of spread things apart.
