    The four prongs on the hard drive that allow the drive to cradle in the main hard drive slot - how do I get these off? I need to do so in order to fit the drive in the OptiBay mount (I want my SSD on the 6Gbps link).

    Thanks!

    It is a T6 Torx screw. Get a T6 Torx Screw driver and they will just unscrew.

    angle grinder all the way...

    or perhaps an oxy torch if your feeling adventurous...
