I'm curious as to why everyone that wants to hide SSDs behind the motherboard doesn't just Velcro them back there? That would negate the whole screws issue.

Given that there is 26mm (or just over 1") free space between it and the side panel, it should even work if you use the 2.5" to 3.5" adapter tray that comes with many SSDs.

My relatively ancient first generation Corsair Force 120 SSD came with the tray and I just used Velcro to hang it vertically on the back of my 5.25" bay.

It's been there for 3yrs....

I'd forgo the tray, but I thought perhaps the adhesive from the 3M brand Velcro might take some paint or anodizing off from my SSD housing if I ever wanted to remove it. It probably won't, though.

However, if you use the tray, you could simply screw it in before installing the motherboard.

Then the SSD itself would be installed onto the tray by simply removing the back side panel of the case without ever taking the motherboard out!

No Velcro that way...

Heck, those unneeded screw holes on the bent up side of the tray could even be used to run additional zipties for cable management assistance...

I noticed this morning that the Define R4 Black Pearl Windowed was out of stock at newegg. Now it doesn't even come up on the site.

It's "temporarily out of stock" at Amazon, too... as is the XL R2 in Black Pearl (although it actually states the XL is "currently unavailable")

I think people are snapping the Define series up, as the Titanium Grey XL R2 is only available for over $170 (!!!) at Amazon, whereas it was $129.99 yesterday.

The XL R2 isn't even listed at Newegg in any color, at least the R4 is still there in Titanium Grey and Arctic White.

Unfortunately, as people see them scoring well in reviews the sales numbers go up and Fractal Design needs to increase production and distribution to match!

OK, now I am a sad panda sadsmiley.gif I could have grabbed 1 last week but held off thinking the Egg would put it on sale after NCIX ended its sale.

I emailed Fractal about how to replace the power led, and in their natural way of offering great support they sent in a short explanation and two pictures to help us understand: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



There you go, it's pretty damn easy to remove. smile.gif

They never cease to amaze me with their support. Definitely some of the best customer support in the business. That's awesome that they sent you those pictures with a great little explanation.

Will not work. That bracket there dont have any threads to screw on to the back of mobo tray. Plus then you need to mount the SSD onto the bracket itself. So using the holes for zipties wont work either, unless they are super slim.

$2 US and some change from Wal-Mart and have both of my SSD's mounted.

No mess no fuss and yes, you can remove the Velcro without damaging the paint on the case in anyway.

Depending on your cable management there is actually room for about 4-5 SSD's to be mounted back there.
