Pretty sure those are riveted in, not modular cages, like the Phantom 530 for example. You'd have to drill out the rivets, and you'd lose them permanently

As already indicated by cooperred, not designed with removable drive cage. bit-tech

Part of what makes that case so cheap is the lack of removable drive bays.

just drill them out if you dont need them, it looks like it would be no more than a 1/8th drill bit, probably some light dremel work as well.

you will then need to mount your hard drives in the 5.25 bays, unless you come up with another solution.

You could put an SSD in the cable management area behind the mobo
