Nice! hope it works out for ya. I've been thinking of getting a track car. Keep us posted

Yeah, I was thinking about that after seeing all the pictures on this thread. That was all custom made by you guys, right? I'm going to have to start taking some measurements, start cutting and painting.

Hey Rockr can you post some more pics of your HDD cage mod and your graphics card mod? Because if i decide to get a 5870 i will need to do some cutting
post #21398 of 28613
AS REQUESTED:

Hi everyone. I've done what I think is quite a unique HDD cage mod to my CM Storm Scout. Most everyone I see modifying their cage, they're removing it. I decided to go with a different route and mod the cage itself. I really like the results. Now I can fit all but the very largest video cards and still use my HDD cage as well.

This all started because I ordered an AC Accelero Exteme 5870 VGA cooler for my , yep; you guessed it, Hd 5870.Though my card currently fit in my case by sticking into the 5.25'' bay, it wouldn't work with the extra inches I was going to gain by adding the cooler as it is 12'' long. Well this won't do so I fixed it. I hope you like my ingenious solution as much as I do.

First up, here is what I started with, the stock cage


and the stock 5.25'' bay

Using my trusted Dremel and diamond wheel I had to remove the eight rivets holding it in.




After some cutting and grinding, out came the cage


Now it was time to let the big dog eat and notch that 5.25'' bay and cut down the HDD cage.




hand bend some feet for the cage to sit on and to be able to screw it down


Test fit with HDD

I used self tapping HDD screw to secure the cage back where it belongs.


A little touch up for the paint

and a fresh coat for the HDD cage

It was time to re-assemble. Throw in a custom acrylic PSU cover and HDD bay cover and it's looking pretty sharp!


Some might say I've reduced my cage to only 2 HDD, but the way I was thinking was; I've been wanting to go with a 128GB SSD for my OS and core programs with 1TB storage drive for Multimedia and Documents and a 2TB external drive for backup. To me with the rate of SSD development, RAID is dead, so no need for massive amounts of internal HDDs.

I hope you all enjoy looking as much as I did making. Thanks!

Thanks Rockr, i may do the same thing because i am most probably getting a 5870 no matter what other say. But i will probably need at least 3 HDD spaces. I have been waiting for someone to do a mod like that. But i have another good idea, if i chop the HDD caddy in half i could mount half in the original place and the other half just next to the PSU if there is enough space.

Thanks again Rockr

Your welcome. Get the 5870. You'll not be disappointed. I play all my games fully loaded with eye candy and it never falters. As for DX11 support, I say BAH!!! who the hell has time to notice textures and mipmaps when you're dodging enemy fire anyway?
