Hi, what's a reverse ATX setup ? You install the mobo upside down ?
post #4062 of 4392
Reverse ATX is where the CPU is at the lower end, and the PCIe slots up.
If you had a window, it'd be on the right side of the case rather than the standard left side.

Marv
have you just tried flipping the tray?
As long as you don't need to also swap the sliders, it shouldn't be that great of a challenge.....

Well you need to swich the sliders to flip the tray. Thats the part where I am stuck. But also once you flip the tray you also need to flip the 3 1/2 " drive space. Which is not a big deal. The big deal is fitting the sliders as they are on metal parts as well.

Do you really need the slider?
I would just remove them.
Then also take out the vertical strut (holding the ends of the sliders) move it to the other side of the case (on the vertical strut there are already the two holes for it. Don't forget to turn it 180 degrees on its vertical axis.
Then all you have to custom built are the two brackets to fix the mobo tray to the vertical strut.thumb.gif

I really prefer to keep the sliding mobo tray as it helps a lot specially dring cleaning and hardware changes. I have been trying to make it easier to clean the case and this is one of the things whihc helps. I am going to take a look at the case and see what can be done.

Hello everyone. I need pictures of disassembled mechanism front IO panel Cooler Master ATCS 840 shown below:


I appreciate any photos. I really need them. I am sorry for my english. Thanks in advance!
post #4067 of 4392
Should have taken picture when I replaced two of the USB 2 ports with version 3 six months ago...smile.gif
Why do you need pictures if I may ask ?
I'ts not a very complicated mechanism, you can have an idea of what it looks like without taking ti apart if you look from inside the case...
post #4068 of 4392
I need them because I'm building my own case (a 3d model for now). I really liked this solution of front IO panel and I thought I can use it in my project. About the mechanism - I have figured out it already, I created my own version wink.gif Indeed, it is not complicated mechanism.

I bought a motherboard tray from the CM store about a week ago and just got it today, sadly the motherboard standoffs are threaded M3 thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif M3 is great and stuff, with the fine thread and all, but it's totally not the standard anymore and I have NO M3 standoffs. McMasterCarr sells them for $1.50~ each plus shipping, which adds up fast.

Anyone have any sources for M3 standoffs... or can anyone tell me the exact height of the standoffs (I assume it's not the normal height because if I recall, nobody makes metric standoffs with standard-system heights...)

Drill and tap 2 holes in the rear chassis beams to accommodate the lower 2 screws (silver screws in picture)
Drill 2 holes in the mobo tray so that the door screws can go through
Shave a notch in each door so that they don't hit the lower 6-32 screws on the mobo tray
I did file a little bit since my drilled and tapped threads didn't line up perfectly. Like the result though. My 3x140mm sits in the bottom. Still trying out different places to put the PSU.

As you can see there's a tremendous amount of space down there now. You can also clearly see the hardware from the top of the case, which I like.

Was dying for a floor, so I whipped one up. I have it so when underlighted the OCN logo glows. I'll capture it once I have something better than a phone camera.

Edit: As a note, removing the horizontal supports and the hard drive cage really haven't hurt the integrity of the chassis (structural). It is still solid, even when weighed down with that WC setup and now 4 HDD. It's pretty heavy and doesn't really flex at all.
Even under all the WC weight the mobo tray also still feels solid.
If anybody needs spare parts I have a bundle now.
