Can anyone tell me how to remove this top panel from my case?

Hi,

I have just got my new aerocool x-predator (full tower) in the mail. I am trying to remove the top panel (I have had it confirmed that it is removable) to mount the fans for my corsair h110, but I cant figure it out. I am a new system builder so im not the best, so if anyone knows/can describe to me how to remove the top panel, I would HUGELY appreciate it. Thanks :)

More about remove top panel case
  1. Didn't saw a case which can open from top :)

    But hey, you can open one of the side ones and set the mobo in there, after that you can set in the fans ..

    Thanks for the reply, but I need to know how to take off the top of the case.
  3. take side panels off

    look up inside and see if there are 3 plastic tabs on the case roof part on each side

    push the plastic tabs in to release the top

    dont know about your case but a lot of cases use this method
  4. there are very few cases with removable top panels. the only one i've ever seen is an old antec i used to have.
    i find no indication anywhere that the top panel on your case is removable. if it is indeed removable then the manual would surely indicate how to remove it, otherwise i think it's safe to assume it is not removable and whoever told you otherwise is mistaken.
  5. i can guarantee you the top panel comes off

    its just common sense--the usb ports are connected to the top panel for one thing

    and top mounted fans

    how would you assemble the case in the factory if the top didnt come off?

    very few cases have removable top panels.?????????

    i have 3 cases here--all of them have removable top panels

    cant think of a case i have owned that you couldnt remove the top panel

    except for some really old ones where the side panels and top were made of one bit of metal

    but even then the whole thing came off in one
  6. looking at a picture of your case

    on the rear of the top panel theres a rectangular hole

    it may be as simple as put your fingers in there and pull up

    my rv02 the top panel comes off by doing that
