Okay, I'm obviously new here so take it easy on me. I'm thinking I'll cross post this to the lanboy thread as well unless that will get me into trouble
You may or may not be aware that the Lanboy chassis can be configured and reconfigured into a staggering number of arrangements, the total number was over 30,000 IIRC. So some of the problems I'm having is simply making up my own mind of where I want to mount stuff, regarding that, now would be a good time to ask; does it matter if the res is installed at the top or the bottom for performance and/or functionality?
Regardless of WHERE I mount the res I'm having a problem with mounting it in my Antec Lanboy. I snapped a few pics last night when messing with the mockup so for the sake of this post ignore the location and the fact that it is actually upside down in at least one picture. The problem is the mounting holes WILL NOT line up with my mounting brackets regardless of how I move it around. To illustrate...
The res is held up from underneath in order to show that the brass fittings in the side of the res do not line up with the holes in the mounting bracket. Note there's no gap (gap by Lanboy standards I mean, this thing has opening all over the place) below the blue ray burner or above the toolbox at the bottom.
If I actually mount the res I get a huge gap above the res and an even bigger one below since I had to actually remove the toolbox.
Same thing with the black plate removed for clarity. It is upside down as part of my failed sanity check, regardless of being installed right side up or not it simply insists on using up three 5.25 bays since those holes are apparently drilled in the wrong location.
So what gives? I cannot see how XSPC could have screwed up my kit during the manufacturing process, so I do not think I got a defective one. I have seen the Rasa 750 installed in a Lanboy before, but it was not clear if the owner had the same problem or not.
Can someone tell me what I am missing here?
