Coolermaster cases have lip needed to be sanded

  1. I want to let people who are interested in the Coolermaster Cavalier Mid Tower know that with an ASUS board running PCIe, they may have to dremmel the back of the case. I noticed that my ATI AIW X1800 could not fit snuggly because there is a lip on the case where the PCIe card goes. It is actually a pretty big lip and took me 30 minutes to sand down.

    Try placing tape over the holes for the fan to keep as much of the metal shavings from landing on your mobo. Also, use a air can to blow out any left over shavings.

    Well, I'd recommend removing all your electronic components from a case before modifying it.

    I'd also like to add that a while back I used the same case (120mm fan model right?) and a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D. I ran into an issue where the Karajan Audio module wouldn't fit because of the 120mm fan on the back of the case. I had to dremel a grove in the fan case in order to install the module.

    Note the extended length of the PCB.
