Thread: removing drive bay from Ultra Grid mid-tower

    removing drive bay from Ultra Grid mid-tower

    I need to remove the 3 1/2" drive bay column from my case.

    Description: The Ultra Grid 3 1/2" drive bay is 2 metal columns attached to the base and to the 5 1/4 bay by these metal fasteners that have a head but no standard bit for unscrewing them....(just a hole like a rivet)

    My problem: I don't know what these fasteners really are....taps ? rivets ? screws ? some sort of cheap molding ?

    I don't want to tear up my case or ruin the drive bay by simply cutting it out. I would like to remove whatever these fasteners are and be able to reinstall the drive bay. I can't be too rough as the drive bay column is that cheap metal that most of them are. The fasteners look pretty cheap too.

    My guess with our seeing the case is they are rivets and you can just drill them out and then use a screw with a nut to reattach....look at the structure carefully some bays help hold the whole case together.

    As rodrosenberg stated. They are rivets. I don't have the case anymore, and don't have the ideal pictures to confirm, but based on what my pics show in this review. http://www.modders-inc.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story2&reid=65
    There are four rivets at the bottom and I will assume four rivets at the top of that 3.5" cage. Simply drilling the rivets out (probably best to start off with a 1/8" bit) will allow you to remove the cage.

    yup...drilliing them out worked. it was a little tricky getting them out of the top where it connected to the 5 1/4 inch bay. Thanks for the help.
