even my current nzxt hush has 4 bays and 2 smaller bays
whys it got so few? does it have particularly good ventilation or?
There is only 2 its a smaller profile and i think(?) room for 2 120mm fans under the 5.25 bays for case air instake.
It has decent ventilation, about middle of the pack R3 Performance
. I for for one love the minimalistic aesthetics. There is a larger version too called the XL(Full Tower), although air cooling is worse XL Performance
I do believe there are internal card readers, or some that are meant to be mounted inside the case, I've seen them in a few builds.
Have you looked at Antec 300
? A little smaller, but well ventilated, and a lot cheaper. If I could find one of these
i would go ITX with my next build. Damn smexy. Small, and has enough space for local storage, everything else could be dictated to a computer NAS.
But i think the R3 is quieter than all of them.
