OK, one more quickie (Woo Hoo, I'm having a quickie!!):

I have not been able to determine how to get the "other" side of my case off. I installed an add'l 2TB HD, and could only attach screws on one side when mounting it. It kind of fit into a "slot", so it's not drooping or hanging off-level.

Anyone think the two screws on the other side of the HD are important? If so, I'll pursue it before final installation! (still loading software titles today)

If that case is like many I've seen, it is almost impossible to get to the other side of the drive. Two screws is enough, and possibly all the case maker intended.

You're kidding right? Mr. Got Wood and all his tools?

A few suggestions: Skill saw and metal blade, Sawsall, or the simple, but ever effective, hammer. Geesh...

Most of the time to get the other side off all you have to do it drill the rivets out.

I wondered about that Chris, but thought it made sense to see if anyone thought the other two screws into the HD was even worth bothering with.

I am surprised that the case doesn't open on both sides, though. The case is big enough to add quite a bit and is otherwise well designed.

If you look at the case with that side being the bottom, as cases were originally designed, it makes more sense that it isn't considered removable.

Even my $350 case (that price includes PS and SAS backplane), the "bottom" can't be removed. Though the drives all get mounted into a carrier of some sort than that carrier locks into the case. So I can use four screws on each drive.

Many newer enthusiast cases do have removable panels on the right side, though. Even my older Silverstone TJ05 has one, although I don't usually bother.
