take off both side panels. you should see screws attaching the frontpanel to the chassis. many cases have this design

I have this same case. There are no screws. What I did was just pull on the top of the case firmly and it will pop off. It feels like you are going to break it but you shouldn't break it. Once it comes off the first time it becomes easier each time after that. I also found that one of my Drives was larger than the other one and it wouldn't fit unless I put it as the bottom drive. Which was weird.

Yes just pull it. There are no screws. There are 6 snap in pieces (2 top corners, 2 middle, 2 bottom corners).
