"Special Order" at Provantage means "you'll be waiting 2 weeks at the very minimum for this to arrive, and we might never get it in stock at all"
tis often true...but considering this is the man who bought the sinks... is saving 360 on hs worth the wait?

I'm pleased to announce a new option that will allow you to securely mount hard drives to almost anywhere on the tray. :) $5 for one set.



More info here.

Why would you hang the ODD on the outside?

Wouldn't the HDD mount flat on the inside of the area, hang the ODD above the HDD and done, and it all fits inside the case

The ODD is too wide to be mounted over the HDD area.

Are you currently making and selling cases, Spotswood? I may be interested in a case with the video card rack and some water cooling provisions.

Excellent. I'm off work next week so after Christmas I'll spend some time going back through this thread and figure out what I need.

Stacks of trays are now fastened together with hidden threaded dowels.




And are now shipped with heavy duty stainless steel fan mounting tabs.

Wicked, I grew up in Milford, NH, although I am currently in Atlanta.

I am looking to start a test bench/ folding bench and I definitely want to get with you and see what we can do.

The temperature is supposed to go down into single digits this weekend. Maybe you should come up to help in the shop. hehe

Send me a PM of what you have in mind.

Do not just thank me :) I am just the leg man. The board was originally Patriot's and I just did the work of RMA'ing it.

New design with 6 posts provides a built-in location for mounting a hard drive via grommets.






Or the HD can safely rest on the soft grommets.




These now have cast aluminum 90-degree brackets to holdup the expansion card support beam.




Lastly, added another upgrade, which is stainless steel tabs are now used to mount 3 fans and a PSU.



More pics and info here.

There's been some confusion as to how to use the expansion card beam/clamp. The card is sandwiched between the two halves.

A lower tier for the 4p/SWTX size trays is now available.



You can fit one or two 120x4 radiators across the width of the tier and its tall enough for three 5.25-inch bay devices.

A new smaller size ATX tray is soon to be available that can accommodate a standard size ATX motherboard, PSU and a single SSD storage device.






This is a smaller bare-bones version of the other trays (not stackable; no expansion card support) and is therefore priced accordingly.

Some more info here.
