15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

Rails Secure Drives Firmly

It doesn't get any fussier. The drive bracket is affixed directly to the case, turning installation into a tightrope routine. A small hook has to engage in the drive holes before the drive can be positioned properly. That may sound easy, but it isn't. Unless you hold down the locking mechanism the entire time while inserting the drive, the hook will inevitably scratch up the drive.

The drives are installed with a rather complicated mounting system.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
