Storm Trooper - Can only turn 1 drive cage.

I wanted to share my unpleasant experience with this case which otherwise is an excellent case: great build quality, good looks, good documentation but there is a big design issue. This case is sold as a turnable drive cage solution. It comes with the drive cages turned sideways and the manual shows how to turn them. Well, you can turn one of the 2 cages around but not the other because there is a BIG non-removable support bar in the way. I have attached a pic to show the situation.

 

I feel that I have wasted my time and money on a very badly designed case as I can only have 3 HDD in this case and I don't like stacking drives one on top of the other so it's a real bust.

Not only will I never buy another CM case but I will tell everyone I know never to buy another CM case. Your nVidia HAF case had no front Audio connector and all of the front panel USB ports were upside down.

 

I would have thought that a company with your good name would be a bit more careful with your QA...

 

I guess not. I am an unhappy customer.

Unscrew the round support. I have a 4 cage caddy ont top and the bottom cage has been rotated so fan points out front instead of back

That "non removable" support bar is in fact removable. Theres a screw on each side problem solved.
