hum.... so i was looking through my log trying to find anything that i NEED to fix/clean up and i keep seeing that HDD cage.... i know if i ever want full LC dual loop (gfx cards and CPU) im gonna need more space. so im thinking.... should i just cut it out and fab up a new cage my self?

i have a couple ideas of how i can do this. and dont bother suggesting the 5.25inch bay converters as i have the "Cooling Duct" taking up the last 3 that i have left. (then optical drive up top and fan controller on the bottom)

so yea what if i made a cage that went along the top behind the drive bays? it wouldn't be too difficult and it should be easy enough to maby even just relocate the stock cage.

looks like ill be drilling out some rivets tonight

what do you guys think of this idea?

Will you still be able to get access to your dvd drive still? (I assume you mean put the HDD cage behind the dvd drive?)

i need to do some measuring and figuring when i get home but im about 85% sure that if i take the cage out of the front and stick it to the top behind the 5.25inch bays so that its on its side (from how it is stock rotate it 90* clockwise and then tip it 90* foreword) so the HDDs power and data cables are in the same area as the optical drive) it would be a simple mod (and i can keep the tool less feature that i really like about that particular HDD solution.

its one of the better ones i think. i dont really like the thumb screw thing that Lian-Li used for some reason.

Are you going to rivet it back in or use some sexy looking bolts?

if its hanging from the top of the case it really wont mater a whole lot as they wont be seen any way once i get the handle back on it so ill probably just modify the cage a little (couple small strips of aluminum channel riveted to the side of the cage and then to the top of the case) and rivet it in

ill try and throw something together at lunch to explain what im thinking a bit better

last night before bed i took all the grills back out the bezel after my controller stealth project and then took it with me to work


that's one of the slots im going to fill.


i thought it was a cool picture, so i took it


weapon of choice. i would have preferred something a bit better but it was free so i cant complain. just enough left in the can for this project but not enough for any thing we do at work.


just slop it in and smush it around with the plastic thingy making sure you get as many of the bubbles out as you can.


all filled in. now i just need to wait for it to set. i decided to go easy on the hardener because i wanted some time to actually be able to work with it and make sure it was doing what i wanted it to. but i did use enough to make sure it hardened. i was kinda worried i didn't use enough.

it didn't set up enough for me to be comfortable enough to start cleaning it up at work so i threw it in the back of my car to deal with when i got home


one side mostly cleaned up


and the other.


i didn't do as well as i had hoped filling in the slots and i got some pitting and a couple little bubbles here and their but that's no big deal. i still have a little filler left at work so ill just fill them in tomorrow and sand again. then prime once or twice (depends on how it comes out) and then 3 or 4 coats of paint then taping and some more paint only in yellow this time


thanks for reading. be sure to go vote for mod of the month (link in my sig). i would love you forever if you vote for me but if you dont feel my project is up to par with one or more of the others vote for them.

feel free to comment make suggestions or ask questions! i like conversation.
Ok, now this might sound like a STUPID question, but how well is that body filler going to flex ? Only reason I ask is I know that the front panel is not rigid, when removing it from the case it buckles a little. This in turn will crack your filler and any paint on it would it not ?

im not worried about it. that particular type of filler was used on a rock crawler we did a bunch of work on here (one of the guys that works here builds them) and the bed side that it was used on flexes ALLOT and he has never had a problem with it cracking or flaking

if any thing i can epoxy a rod of some random metal to the back of the whole thing.

actually i think ill do that any way just to be safe!
