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 :)

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.

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

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.

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

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
