Mounting SSD to 1000d

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

So I recently bought the 1000d case and attempting my first PC build. Problem is there are hardly any guides available as everyone seems to be building $10k machines. I’m learning a lot just by figuring out stuff on my own. But for the life of me, I can’t seem to figure out how the SSD slots work... I have the Samsung Evo 1TB connected and yeah, I’m just at a loss.

 

I checked online, YouTube, like 35 different posts on here and can’t find anything. I looked on the corsairs parts store and saw nothing regarding SSDs, just the magnet door itself.

 

I thought since this case was huge, it’d be easier to build my first PC. Instead, here I am scheduling therapy to get passed this.

Hey bud...

 

first.. I have a build log here... http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=180073

but sadly doesnt cover mounting the SSD's... bit it's as simple as removing the SSD sledge from the door.. mounting the drive to the sledge and then remount the sledge to the door ;)..

 

i also have a Corsair Case Owners club Discord server, maybe 8 1000d onwers now and an equal mix of new and advanced builders,, you are more than welcome to join.. https://discord.gg/b6x8HpM is generally always someone about to answer questions :)

 

and if you havnt read it. my Faq thread is worth the read on the RGBz side of life. http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=173880

Zotty, first off THANK YOU because it was YOUR thread that I found myself kept going back to. When I got stuck anywhere, I'd load up my iPad and find your post lol. Looking through the pictures and stuff helped.

 

The issue I'm having is yes, I can fit the SSD in, but it doesn't close. The SSD is too thick. Not to mention, there are two wires (Sata III/Power). The thumb screw doesn't reach.. It stops about midway as the SSD is too bulky and even if it were to reach, the 2 cables get in the way of it.

I have my SSD's in converter trays so they fit the HDD sledges in the HDD caddie. just figured it was the cleaner looking option as i had the space there to do so... when i put the ITX board on i will have to use the door mounts though

Do you mean the SSD caddies inside the french doors?

 

Drives don't slide "into" them. You remove the caddy from the door, and screw the drives onto the caddy then mount the caddy back onto the door.

 

You end up with the door as the base, the caddy on top, and the SSD screwed onto the top of the caddy, with as a result a 1/4" or whatever of spacing from the french door so you have room for fingers and whatnot while you route cables to the drive.

 

Hope that's helpful and I haven't misinterpreted your question. I also thought the drives were to slip inside them at first, learned otherwise.

The SSD is to be mounted on the outside, top, surface of the SSD caddy after removing the caddy using the thumb screw. The top labeled portion of the SSD will be showing when the caddy is installed back on the door panel.

 

Each SSD drive caddy assembly will essentially be about twice as thick when mounted.

 

The 1000D video on the product site shows an SSD mounted at 2:03 of the video.
