Corsair Obsidian 650D Mid-Tower - Page 419

post #4181 of 4826
what solution are you guys using to mount 3.5 drives in the optical bay? i want to delete my hdd rack altogether and move both my hdd and ssd to the optical bays. the ssd i'll just velcro, just looking for a solution with the 3.5 drive. i have a 2.5/3.5 to 5.25 bracket from my other fractal midi case but it wont work with the corsair tool less design. any suggestions?

edit: i should have looked more closely at my case, didn't realize you could remove the toolless clips. popped those out. looks like i'll be able to get the bracket to work.

I ended up using the 2.5"/3.5" brackets installed in a 3.5"/5.25" adapter I picked up from a local PC store where I live. I got a couple of them for both the SSD and HDD and installed them in the bays and ended up using a screw on one side to hold them in place due to them being a little shorter than the tool-less parts to hold them.

I hope that helps a little. I can't find exactly what I used but this image is similar:


cheers and good luck thumb.gif

I use this here. Cuts down on vibration quite a bit, and its cheap.

Yeah I guess that would work too lol wink.gif

Just messing bro, good thing to use I think. I'll have to keep this option in mind for the future when I finally get around to making my Media PC.

Materials: velcro command strips, pliers, eraser, and super glue, original front bezel cover
Time taken: 2 minutes
Steps: break plastic off the back of the bezel cove with the pliers till you get to the front
put the command stripes on bezel and optical driver glue an eraser to corner of the bezel and VOILA!

its a pet peeve for me to see the optical drives not matching hope this helps pple

What are you guys using to mount two fans at the top of the case? Washers? Did any come with the case or did you guys have to go to a tool store cause my fan screws fall right through lol
