I see we are among the few with the A05FN. Can you check something on yours for me.
I bought two of these and both have a problem where the motherboard tray isn't riveted straight to the frame along the top right edge.
If yours has the same problem it's easiest to see with the motherboard side panel off and sight the edge of the tray.

I'm going to try to mount mine on the back side of my mobo. That is if there is enough room.

there are 3 equally-spaced rivets each on top, side, and bottom

i have mine in the 3.5" slot. my 2 HDDs are side by side on the floor of the case in some modified enclosures.

if i had to do it again, i might mount the SSD behind the mobo, but it'd be close for space.

Would this work in this case? I have 4 HDDs and one SSD I'm hoping to put in this case. Hoping I can just swap out the stock cage for this one.

that looks like it couls work if you mount it with fan. you may be able to salvage the mounting brackets from the stock cage. i just dont know if it is worth$40.
post #1699 of 3785
how does the stock cage attach to the frame? Is it easily removed (I see people take them out all the time) or is it riveted in or something? If I were to go with that new cage, would the fan be the only thing holding it in? I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that...

my HD cage is screwed to the frame of the case just remove 4 screws and it comes off should be the same for you
