800D Inverted ATX style?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi. I've googled and haven't found ANYTHING on this. Anyone know if it's a fairly simple process to invert the mobo tray on this case?

you mean from having the usb / other jacks in the back to another position?

No, actually flipping the mobo tray upside down and on the other side of the case. Much like what's done with TJ07's.

I did it with my Antec SOLO by flipping the back panel and motherboard tray upsided down. That puts the PSU at the bottom of the case. If you did that with the 800D however, the PSU would be at the top (because the PSU and mobo's back plate is one piece), which is not wise if you ask me. You'd have to cut the PSU's backplate away from the mobo tray and reweld/ rivet it back on with the mobo tray upsided down.

Why do you want reverse ATX for such a well cooled case?

I was just really curious. Yeah, I though about it after doing some serious looking at it, and putting the PSU up-top isn't my idea of fun.

Thanks for the reply and insight. +Rep
