Installing Hard Drives

Antec Skeleton

The Skeleton gives you the option to mount your hard drives in one of two (or both) places. In the 3.5” bay you can also have an auxiliary fan to cool the drives. Now, if you’re like me and your power supply has a ton of connections on it you’re going to have to use the alternate mounting spot for the hard drives – the case side.

That’s right:  the sides of the case, where anything can smack it while it’s humming away. I will admit four Raptor drives with the windows would be pretty trick looking.

To do this you first mount the drive to the caddy with two screws. Then the hooks on the caddy lock into the side panel and the rubber strips keep the vibrations down.

With the drive caddy on the side panel you then screw through the side panel into the hard drive.

With the power supply, DVD ROM, and hard drive mounted I turn my attention back to the motherboard. I changed coolers to the Noctua NH-C12P. With a cooler that would now fit I went to install the video card and realized that I need to remove the support rail. This was easily done by removing two screws (one each side).
