For one of my cases I just drilled the proper holes then just screwed it in as normal. But I'm sure you could easily use some of that awesome 3M doubled sided tape ( really is awesome stuff ).

I will try to mount it from the side of the 5.25 bay since I'm thinking the holes should line up. If not I'll just put tape and put it somewhere.

Has anyone removed the bottom hard drive cage? I want to do it but I'm afraid I'll chip the screw and not be able to put it back again in the future.

no screws involved to loosed or lose because the lower HDD cage is held in by
6 rivots, four on the bottom and two in between the front fans on the chassis. i'd
advise install the other HDD cage when drilling the rivots to prevent twisting and
deforming the case while drilling. with the case on the I/O side down, i'd start on
the two front rivots first and then with roof and front panel removed, drill the last
rivots on the bottom. then remove the cages. i took string and threaded the string
through the rivot holes to contain the HDD trays and save for a later build idea.

like this
450

and when needed, you can pop rivot them back into place with 1/8" x 1/8" ally or steel
rivots and paint them SEM black trim paint (same color match).

empty 51/2 drive bays , tranfer template over and drill
out matching holes

a 90 degree or right angled drill will come in handy

screw down thru drive bay into HD.

use some kinda suspension washer/standoff
to keep HD off of direct cage contact

real simple......but very effective

1/8" drill bit is what you'd use

rivot gun would only be needed (actually you could use screws if you threaded the hole)
if you needed to mount the cage back to its original position

I don't see the point in drilling the holes for the hdd, it's easier to just strap it beside the mobo tray using a zip-tie like many ppl do with the ssds.

Sure.....zip-ties work. You could prolly get away with using hot glue or bubble gum too.
Most serious builders will take the time for a more professional installation.
