This is not so much a mod as it is a necessary adjustment to the case. I have decided to begin modification of an IBM Netfinity 5000 server chassis.

As far as I know I am the only one to attempt a mod on this chassis. I have been told so by the founder of modthebox.com and through my various search strings on the web.

What you are seeing is
WD2500JS-SE SATAII 7200rpm
Maxtor 160 7200rpm
Seagate 160 7200rpm

These have been mounted to the top inside of the chassis by 1/8 inch holes drilled in the top of the chassis underneath the top/right sliding panel.

The drives are mounted with standard course thread mobo offsets and then having a case screw applied to it through the top of the chassis into the offset holding the drive firmly in place upside down.

The power cord you see taped to the back of the chassis above the thermaltake fanless 103 is leading to the FRONT mounted power supply.

The cables have been cleaned up a bit since this pic was taken and will have an update to it ASAP.
