So... the motherboard tray is integrated into the back side-panel, and the top, back side, and bottom are all a single piece of U-bent metal. Man that's tough. Looks like there is a plastic panels on the top, front side, and bottom as well instead of the metal being directly exposed. That's wild.
I thought about suggesting you flip the entire frame, except for the front metal panel. Basically flip the entire metal frame upside down, then flip the front metal panel so that it's rightside up. But now I see that the 5.25" drive cage uses the back side panel as part of the mount. You *could* get past that by drilling new holes or even modding a custom cage, but man what a pain in the butt. LOL.
That's a tough case to do any serious reconfiguration on, unless you're willing to do a lot of custom metalwork. It can be done, if you have the urge. You can pick up sheet metal from your local hardware store that should fit the bill, but that may be a bit aggressive for your first beigemod.
Are you going to keep the plastic panels on the top and sides?
