    If you own the case and have a recent PCI-E graphic card like a X1800XT or X1900XT then you will have trouble fitting the card in... it doesn't physically fit :duh:

    Tools Needed

    1. Hacksaw blade
    2. Cordless drill (any electric drill will do).
    3. HSS 4mm drill
    4. Flat file

    Step 1

    Locate the oval cut out in the lower section of the 5.25" bay holder on the left hand side.

    Using the hacksaw cut down the side until you reach the flat section (lower 5.25" bay bottom).

    Step 2

    Once both sides has been cut, the metal section needs to be removed. The easiest way to remove the section is to drill a series of small pilot holes.

    Step 3

    Bend 90° in each direction until then section snaps and you are able to remove it.

    Step 4

    File the remains flat.

    Step 5

    Vac up any swarf that came from the drilling, cutting and filing. Wipe the area with a damp cloth as small particals of Alu can still reside there.

    Now throw your system back in a hope your card fits ;)
