    How to fit OC Panel in Corsair Carbide towe case


    I'm pretty sure this has already been answered but I guess I'm just not good enough at searching.

    My issue is that I've just added this mother board to the Corsair Carbide mid-tower gaming case. It has a wonderful tool less docking system for drives. My DvD slotted in perfectly but when I tried to mount the OC panel in its drive bay it just rattled around and wouldn't lock into the carbide system.

    Is there anyway to screw this in or buy another drive bay?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can remove the plastic lock and then screw in the OC panel.

    There's special adapters you can buy (3rd Party) that can be used to mount the OC Panel in a 5.25" Bay, but these are often terrible quality, and it'd be best to just use longer screws

    If your drive bay works the same as the Corsair 240, the latch mechanism catches the back set of screw holes on a DVD drive, the OC Panel is short and only has the front screw holes so if I'm correct you would have to remove the drive bay and secure the OC Panel with screws
