I'm not sure what they did to the bezel in that instance, but I would imagine a jig + a dremel and some very careful sanding could do it. I'd be mostly intere...

3rd Party Ultrabay compat with T430

Hello all I'm looking at picking up an HDD ultrabay for my T430. My local microcenter has a Silverstone TS09 in stock and on sale, but looking online it sounds like this isnt compatible with anything above the t410 series. Is there any resource/list for third party ultrabay compatibility with the t4...
