Antec 900 Hard Disk Cage Screws

A few weeks ago, I got a free used Antec 900 computer case, and I like it a lot.  Lots of room inside, good air flow, and easy to detach HDD cages.

Cages look like this.  (Image source: http://hardwarelogic.com)

But I quickly found out there is a problem when I tried to add a couple more HDD.  It uses a very long screws to fasten HDDs inside the cage, and extra screws didn't come with the case. :(

So I went to Home Depot and found matching screws: Machine Screws 6-32 X 1.  This matches perfectly :) The only downside is the screw top is not cross.  But I can still use the flat screw drivers instead the square ones.  So oh well...

  1. The screws are a good way for the disk to be insured and filed along the structure. No more faulty disks because of movement.
