that guy did exactly as i suggested --> Here!!

and it seems he didn't even had to Drill / Put screws to secure the plate!
Looks like it holds!

Oh look..... close.... yes nothing is holding that side. Only one side is holding it. It should work just fine. I might do that now. Now I need a dremel tool. I'll barrow one.

Well I have to cut it.... I found a screw and that method will work but the lid wont close because there is a clip under the lid and it will hit the long screw well the side of that bracket..... it can be used with one screw but it seems there could be vibrations so it will be no good..... best way is keep the whole bracket but cut it like eskro found out...............

Question re: the remote. Will any remote work with this build? Ie, I have a Urc mx-500 that I use so curious if only specific remotes work...

Eskro- any experience with hookbag.ca?

@beer,
Are you using your new 90W brick with the a6?

Hi, just wondering, did using the '65 watt' work out well for you? Which power brick are you using? I saw a post in the other thread that a person was having power issues when trying this trick.


My build is almost the same as yours but with the 150w psu. Just to let everyone know, the 150's psu fan is pretty much dead silent.

90w should arrive Saturday.

so far, looks like 65w does the job as expected.

That makes two of us! Are you using a case fan? How are you finding temperatures?

If I'm buying this type of case, that would be the case I buy too.....and I'm glad that it is silent....!

Not when it hit the spikes as the other guy tested.....
