    Nice Mod. I think I might try the same thing. At the same time I will re-enforce the end of the box that cables enter as I had to cut them for an IDE drive, and now they are only straightish.... As a side note, I did find that changing the pressure on the side of the dirve cage did have a large effect on HDD noise.

    I had the same problem. Only with an older HDD, but the only two ways I found to get around the issue was to put the drive in a 5 1/4 bay (with the appropriate adapter) or cut away some of the metal in the HDD bay infront of the hard disk. Each has its own limitations. If you cut away part of the metal, make sure it is straight afterwards to aviod HDD noise. This is what I did, and afterwards would have prefered to use the other option. (This option will likely only work if you use RAID as JOBD, as an IDE cable will not reach from the HDD "tray" to the top 5 1/4 slot (to link to the DVD drive if your is IDE). If you drop your DVD down it might fit, but mine would not. Note the above assumes an IDE DVD drive that is a slave to the IDE HDD. The simlpest way is to put the IDE drive just below the DVD drive. No real HDD cooling here. Anyway, there may be others but this is what I found. Good luck, Paul

    Draven, Including tax and shipping it came to $110, which, as you pointed out is starting to get a bit expensive...., but not too bad. Much better than the price at Tiger Direct ($106- before tax and shipping) Paul

    I haven't seen this case in any of the "usual" locations (Direct Canada, NCIX.com, etc) Has it been released on mass yet? As initially this thread predicted an Aug release, it kind of makes me think that some fixes are being made before release?? Does anybody have any more info on the release or possible hold-up? Thanks Paul

    ts_123: Thanks for the response, it sounds like a lot of case for the money. Only one other question: When would you estimate that it will be for sale? Thanks, Paul

    Good Question. Yes I am looking for more in the way of specs, including info on cooling (ie any fans on top?), and potential pricing. Thanks to any thay may know, Paul
