E machine case

I need to know how to take the vertical grid/screen out of the second bay (inset about 1 & 1/2 inches) so that I may install a 1/2 height combo CD/DVD drive. It is an older e machine case that has different components installed. I have no manual, the person who built it is out of town.

I did look on the e machine web site, but they required a s.n. & model number, which I obviously do not have.

Re: e machine case

Not sure what model you have but on mine I had to take off the front plastic off. Then rock the metal grid back and fourth till the metal tabs on the end broke off. You can use a dremel tool if you want to be fancy about it.

Is it possible to remove the top optical drive bay's front panel and fit the optical drive without it?

The front panel drive panel needs to be removed so you can install an optical drive. There may be a metal panel behind the plastic front panel, if so this will need to be removed so the optical drive can be inserted into the drive bay.

Power supply compitable for cac-to5-uw?

ATX is a standard.
Any case described as ATX should accept any ATX powers supply.

The only thing you need to decide is how many watts the power supply needs to provide.
To find this out, put "Computer power supply calculator" into Google.
Pick one, or several, and enter the details of what you are going to put in the case.
Enter what you would like to put in the case finally, not just the bits you have to start with.
Like that second internal hard drive, and double the memory, Two DVD drives.
Extra cooling fans?
Then pick a pick a power supply that provides more than that.
No-one has ever run into problems with a power supply running too cool.

Asus vento 3600

Installation and assembly Now it was time to get to grips with the Asus Vento 3600 for real. We fished out a test motherboard and some drives and got to work installing the components into the ASUS case.
The side panel ships secured by a single screw which needs to be removed before you can use the side swivel handle to open the case. Once this was removed, turning the handle clockwise unlatches the side panel, allowing it to be pulled away. The swivel handle operates very smoothly and neatly, and adds immeasurably to the whole space-age feel of the case. The spacious interior allows plenty of room for all ATX motherboards. Thanks to the extra height of the case, the top two 5.25 inch external drive bays are above the plane of the motherboard, so even if you have a full size board, you can mount at least two CD drives without worrying about them interfering with the board.
The backplane of the case sports built-in risers for most ATX motherboards, though additional risers are included if your board needs more or different connections. Installing the motherboard was straightforward as we'd expected
One thing we noticed and appreciated at this point was the way that ASUS had rounded most of the steel edges inside the case. Having worked in computer stores, I appreciate any attempt to protect our tender hands from the pain of sharp steel 'case cuts'.
The expansion slot covers are secured by green plastic locking tabs which need to be levered open and removed from the case. The metal covers can then be easily removed and PCI, AGP or PCI Express cards installed. The tabs can then be returned to their places, locking the expansion cards in place.
