If all you have is an SSD, you can mount it almost anywhere in the case without having to buy a rack like that. In my case I have one rack full (it's in front of the PSU), so my SSD is currently just sitting on top; going to fix in place with either some foam tape or maybe velcro. If you look through the various pics in the thread you'll find many who have done this to hide/position their drives.

If you haven't taken it out yet, the plastic base beneath the drive cages seems a perfect place to mount an SSD. Wish I could find who easily to give credit for that idea, there's a pic in here somewhere... tongue.gif

I have a 1TB HDD and a 64GB SSD so i need to find a place for the HDD. The SSD could be velcroed underneath the drive bays or anywhere really

This build looks like the HDD is next to the PSU and is screwed in place using the HDD cage mounts...clever! Might steal this idea if it doesn't cause any HDD noise

You could just velcro the HDD behind the front fan and infront of the two fans youd be installing. or use that double sided foam tape.

Are the 2 x 120mm fans when tied together touching the floor or are they suspended? I just took out my HDD cage and stacked two 120mm fans i had laying around to test and they are too small to touch top and bottom
Would 2 x 140mm fans fit?

My SSD is on the back of the motherboard tray for now





Might buy one of these adaptors to fit my HDD in a drive bay!



I found if you read the description of most of the hot swappable enclosures they only support 1.5 / 3.0 gbp/s

Are there holes underneeth to zip tie them too? Maybe zip tie them to the drive bays tight, and then to the bottom as as tight as you can, leaving them off the bottom.? Or maybe with hdd cage riser thing underneeth?

Nope there's no holes in the bottom.

The HDD riser is too far back for the mod and two 120mm fans wouldn't fit with it fitted smile.gif

New pics, new card, and new white cold cathodes. The XFX Radeon HD 7950 is quiet while gaming compared to my XFX 6870 I used to have by the way. May change the placement of the white cold cathodes but leaving it like this for now.

Not much to it. Cut the wire loop in half, strip the wires, solder a longer bit of wire to each loop wire. Heat shrink to cover the soldering. Other ends of the long wire solder onto switch. Mount switch to chassis in a location of your choice (this may require drilling a hole, using a pre-existing hole somewhere in the chassis or otherwise mounting the switch). Not much of a tutorial needed, it's just general common sense. There should be no problem finding an online site with a nice selection of switches.

would a 200mm or 230mm fan fit at the bottom instead of stacking 2 x 120mm fans ontop of each other?

Maybe one of these? Would it move more air than 2 120mm fans?
