Front Case Cover on CaseMaxx 610

Post by Akashio » Thu May 22, 2003 12:51 am

I just recently bought a CaseMaxx 610s and am currently trying to put hardware in it. I need to install my drives and HDDs and this is where my problem starts. I can't get to the hinge on the upper-righthand side (when facing the front of the computer) that releases the front case cover because it's behind the drive bay. How do I get to it??

It looks like a couple of things could be the 'front case cover'.

If this is your case which part are you trying to remove?
The blue, red or yellow?

the red. Knowing how to take the yellow off too would be nice, but I could probably figure it out.

uh....okay, I could be waaay way off here, but....

Why dont you get at it from the inside? Take off the side cover and do it all that way!! Only a really bodgy case would not allow you to do that.

ok. I'm not stupid. I AM doing it from inside. It is underneath the drivebay and I can't reach it with my hands or any tool and get it off.

Why do you need to take that off. I am not sure if it's suppose to come off =o. On my case(which is nothing like that one) you don't pop it off =/.

From the looks of it you shouldn't have to remove it :/. Just pop off the bay cover inserts(yellow) and slide your drives in (connectors facing rear of course ;)).

Most cases that allow you to take the front cover off, have a release at the bottom that you have to yank really hard. If the things to remove the front cover are inaccessible. I would imagine they're it's not suppose to be taken off.

I never said you were stupid its just that I have no Idea why you are trying to take the front cover off. Whats the point? Just pop the little blocker thingies out from the inside, its easier.

Duh.

You do it FROM_THE_INSIDE. Take off the left panel (as you are facing the front of the case)reach around, put your hand on the covers and PUSH. If theres little metal thingies, just bend them till they come off and PUSH, like a pregnant lady giving birth. It couldnt be easier.

There are four 'tabs' on the back of them. You reach in from the inside and use your finger to pinch them inward. Get all for and it should pop out through the front of the case. Or maybe it's turn to a angle and you can grab it through the inside.

If that fails then.....hit it with a sledgehammer? No, that should work. Taking the front cover off to put the components in...tsk tsk tsk

Heya, Akashio.

That looks just about like my Antec SX1030, and I'm pretty sure those covers come off the same way.

Just as you see here, in pic 1:

Image

1) Dig your finger into the indentation on the right side of the drive bay cover, and push towards the other side of the case, like you were digging for a clump of ear wax. :shock:

2) While still pushing towards the opposite side of the case, pull forward firmly on the cover. It should pop right off, like...

This:

Image

If all four bays are covered by plates, you may have to rock the plates back and forth, towards and away from the front & rear of the case to fatigue the metal tabs that they are attached by. They will eventually snap off. :D

More questions?
