Can anyone confirm that the plastic pieces can be moved from one cage to the other and allow only the larger cage to be installed in the bottom of the case.
The plastic pieces can most definitely be moved from cage-to-cage, but the bottom cage has a number of extra screws that go in the floor of the case, the motherboard tray, and has an L-bracket stabilizing it to the front panel.
So you'll likely need to get your drill bit out to replicate some of these holes in the larger drive cage in order to get it to swap in and be solid.
This is all from memory but I remember considering this when I had the case.
It's still an awesome case though.
