OK I finally snapped a few quick pics before I had to go to work. The reflection is annoying, any tips let me know. I also installed my HDD cover.

Quick question, not at home at the moment but does anyone know where to find other rivets for the side panel? I am thinking something silver to make it look a bit nicer. Thanks!

Sorry for the lame phone picture guys, but I have a question. I left the standoffs in the same layout as my crosshair IV but when I'm test fitting this MSi Board, the three stand offs on the right aren't covered. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

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!
Awesome Job!! Looks Great!! +reps
