    Came with my Antec 900:

    Left is rubber... I thought it may be to stick on the underside of the case for traction but it has no sticky side, and the case has rubber feet anyway.

    I have no idea about the thing on the right though.

    I read the manual, it did not mention either of these items.

    does your case have a little alcove on top to place stuff? i think that's where the rubber thing goes.

    i built one of these for my brother recently. The left thing sits in the little tray on top of the computer, its like an anti-slide pad for stuff you put in there. the thing on the right i believe is to put on top of video cards or other PCI cards if they extend to far into your drive cages so they dont get damaged.

    The manual does mention the graphic card bracket

    The rubber piece is kinda obvious where it goes though...the tray on the top is the same shape and size :mamoru:

    900s ftw :bowdown:

    But here's the thing: if it were glued in place, 99.99% of buyers would never even think to question whether it's worth having it there. It would simply be there, and users would put shit in that little tray the same as they would've otherwise.

    It wouldn't bother me either way though, I have yet to ever use that hole.

    the same reason your mats aren't glued to the floor of your car.

    Ah, but the carpet is, isn't it? It could be bare metal with removable carpeting, but they didn't do that. Pity; it would've made the carpeting easier to clean too.

    Actually, in every car I've ever pulled the carpet out of (which is actually double digits :mamoru:) the carpet isn't glued down. It's just held in place with all of the seats/trim/etc.

    Some people like it there, some people don't...That way you can choose for yourself. I don't see why this is such a big deal :rofl:

    i hope you put more rational thought into your software design than what you convey on this forum.
