    Quick lil' update: I worked on the HDD/SSD drive bay. I used a BeQuiet tray I had laying around (2 of these will be used to hold a HDD and 2 SSDs).Just have to drill/tap holes and find placement under the PSU shroud. Have to take my Asus power supply out my temp rig and put in here so I know where to place it (more on this later). 20200905_223915.jpg 20200929_170609.jpg


    I added tabs on the back so there would be some support for the trays.

    So, I had to do some modding to the hard drive tray so that I could mount the HDD from the bottom instead of the sides. I just used an exiting hole on the drive bay tray and traced outline of the mounting holes on the HDD and drilled holes the size of the HDD.

    Perfect alignment!

    Decided to make the fan grills magnetic due to the radiator screws not being long enough to mount them. So instead of buying longer screws, I used these 3mm magnets that I had from a previous case mod from some years ago and superglued them to the holes on the grills (had to drill the holes a little bigger). Flush and easy to apply and remove. Perfect solution!

    It's faster to just poke the holes in the card with the pencil. :D
