Quick question... Do you know if Centurion side panels are exchangeable?

I bought a Centurion 5, but didn't get it yet. Apparently they come with ugly TAC holes these days, and I'm hoping I can just swap the panels so the holes face the side of the desk where I don't see them.

It does not look like the other one comes off.

Which model?

On this particular case, the top & left side panel is one piece which is riveted in place, so it wouldnt be possible.

This one.

The pictures on newegg do not make it clear if that's the case there as well.

The third picture in http://www.silentpcreview.com/article200-page3.html looks like both panels are removable...

I've only briefly looked at the CAC-T05, so i cant be sure. The photo's do suggest that both are removable though.

So the floppy cage is actually removable?

Yes, it's secured by two screws and can slide out once they're removed.

Do you think the Scythe Ninja / Mine (150mm) will fit in this case? From pictures I've seen on the web, I'm highly doubtful. I really hope it fits though.
