And as I have advised some members with getting a rotary tool, just get yourself a good pair of saftey glasses and some scrap metal and practice. It should only take you 15 minutes and your confidence will increase and you will be modding your case like a pro.

Just one golden rule though.. Its easy to cut off, hard to put back on thumb.gif

Well, I'm not sure if this has been asked, but I'll ask again!

The setup: I need room in my 600T (or so I think), and I want to cut off the bottom 5.25" drive bay. But I really like the way it's enclosed on the bottom, and I wanna keep that, but you can't just cut the top, or it won't mount right. Cutting out one in the middle looks pretty advanced, but looks to be about my best option. I can almost guarantee Imma mess it up.

The Question!: Is there anyway I can get a whole new 5.25" drive bay? It just rivets in, so can a Corsair rep talk to someone and see about getting a specific part like that?. Doers Corsair manufacture a 3 unit drive bay? My plans involve extensive modding (at least for my skill level, and as this is my 3rd computer, first self-built, that's a bit low), and any shortcut I can take like that will have an immense impact on the mod.

I LOVE this case. Each cut will be heart stopping for me, but the reward outweighs the risk!!

NotAnotherHog, do you need any of the 5.25" drive bay? If not, you could simply de rivet the whole thing. That way, you could rivet it back on when/if you need it back again. That's one of mods I did on my case that is almost unrecognizable now haha.

guys just want to ask anyone of you have a good solution for top exhaust noise ?? I'm thinking of putting some dust filter type mesh on inside of the cover not sure if it will help or not.

if you cut out the plastic supports over the fans it greatly increases air flow and lowers noise. look through the thread, there have been a number of us to do this including me, you can see how specifically how to do it

That's a pretty sweet find. Well worth $25. I prefer a variable speed myself, but this one with four settings would work fine and it looks like it has high torque. I bet that would be a fine tool.

That's a pretty wicked mod you're talking about. Good luck with it. I don't think Corsair sells the parts you're asking about, but you would have to get the straight dope from them to be sure.

As Solders18 mentioned, you can remove the plastic support from under the top mesh cover, and you could also cut the mesh out of the top of the case. Both will reduce noise. Of course, another option is to get quieter fans. All three options should really reduce the noise by quite a bit.

ahh yes, i forgot about the metal mesh that helped with airflow/noise a ton

Joining the club too!

Coming from a temporary 400R, some little things here and there but overall a great case! thumb.gif





I posted on Corsair's forums to see if they can release a V2 controller board that has more USB 3.0 (and a true motherboard USB 3.0 connector) and grey colored wires for the front panel header like the 400R. It would be helpful to show your guys' support!
