Hi guys. Basically I bought a new graphics card today and I need to remove the middle hdd cage. This cage is designed to just be removed with ease. It has two plastic pannels that you squeeze. But the cage will not come out. and I dont have the instruction manual anymore.. Any help would be appreciated.. thanks in advance guys

You just need to wiggle it around. The thin metal can bend and become not perfectly lined up. Don't be afraid to use some force.

Why will you have to reconnect everything if you remove the back panel?

Did you build this or is it a prebuilt?

I built it.. was my first build though, so some of the wires are slightly wrapped around the middle cage, so if i remove the backplate, which the mobo is attached to, those wires will disconnect. I guess ill have to though, i need to get a better idea of what's going wrong

If you have wires wrapped around the case, they are probably preventing your from removing it..

The motherboard is not attached to the back panel. The motherboard is attached to the motherboard tray which cannot be moved. You can remove the back panel without disturbing anything. It is attached to nothing.

Also, just for future reference refer to it as the back panel, not backplate. This will help with confiscation of what you are talking about.

Your GPU will fit. There are no CPU coolers that interfere with GPUs even on mATX motherboards.

Out of curiosity, what are your specs and what GPU are you adding in?

TOp 2 are 3.0 and bottom one is 2.0.

Doesn't matter though there is no performance difference between them.
