I've got two 70mm fans running on 5V ziptied into two 5.25" bays in my CM 590.

Don't think it does anything but I've got nothing better to do with the fans biggrin.gif

That's why I tried my two 80mm fans in there. Their LED's were pretty, though.

I actually bought the fans for their controllers: At $4.99 for fan + controller, I thought it was a great deal. No use for either half now, though. frown.gif

But putting in our own fan is more fun.

Exactly. I believe Mountain Mods already got posted earlier in this same thread but here. It's a 5.25" adapter for 120mm fan mount. I'd much much rather buy this than that xiggy box. Of course, I haven't found a 140mm mount like that, and it's a little bit pricey for what a styrofoam mod can do.

I had no room, so I used a cage+fan to mount my 3 drive RAID array in the bay.

I wouldn't have bothered a DIY project for that when the elegant solution was $25.

Otherwise, yeah.

Back then the ODD was in the third 5.25 slot and the IO panel in the 4th 5.25 slot. I switched them. Now the half-length IO panel is on top of the ODD, which leaves me three slots open behind the IO panel, even though there are only two slots open in front.

Just a better utilization of space.

Just saying xigmatek makes a great HD enclosure for that area and its cheap u could install this and move the drives or just use it behind some mesh drive panels.
