Has anyone else taken out the optional 2-slot HDD Cage in the bottom of your Phantom? I am having one hell of a time getting it out. The screws in the bottom do not want to come out. They keep stripping further every time I try. After a bit of time, I got the two on the right side out. However, the other two are still holding it in place and none of my screwdrivers will grip. I got all of the ones out that hold it in place on the motherboard panel, but these last 2 are refusing to let loose.

Did anyone else have any trouble like this and is there any way I can coax them out of there? lol

I took mine out no problem, I don't know if it is just with your case they are being tricky or what. A lot of the time when I strip out something its directly related to the quality of tool I'm using on it... Just drill them out if they give you too much trouble..

Well, I have a computer-specific Rosewill 45-piece tool set that I ordered from NewEgg when I bought my parts. However, I removed the ones on the back with a Stanley Philips-head with no problem and they are the exact same screws as on the bottom. I tried them on the bottom, the first two gave me a little trouble but came right out. The second two turned a little then wouldn't move another inch. I've tried at least 5-6 different screwdrivers and tips and they still won't come out. lol

I might have to go pick up a drill, then. I don't actually have any power tools so that is why I haven't tried it yet. Can I drill them out without causing any damage to the case?

This is a lot of damn trouble just for an extra fan slot. haha

yea you can drill it out without damaging the case, just use the correct drillbit and you wont even hit the case... Yea sometimes you just get unlucky with stripping out a screw or two... once they slip a little they are a pain to get out..

As for tools, I have found that a eyeglass screwdriver kit works pretty well with computers, the smaller screws anyways.. I don't remember how large that particular screw it.

I am looking for some replacement fans for my too noisy H70 stock fans. So far the best choice I found are the Scythe GentleTyphoon AP-15. I want the fans to be less noisy but offer the same performance or even better then the stock Corsair. Is there anything better then these fans for aprox 15 Euros as these ones cost? Silent Eagle 2000 maybe? What can U recommend.

Anyone know how to use googledocs to generate forms and have people fill in forms and have all the entries consolidated onto one big spreadsheet?
