Not for me.. I have been hording hard drive for a while now.. Especially When I would do projects.. I would buy two hard drives and keep one.. That was partial payment for my builds.. Profit. That and Memory.. If I were you guys I would buy lots of memory right now and quit worrying about the HDDs.. The memory and the Old AM3 chips are the best prices on the market.

BTW Porm Troooper.. I was just looking at your wireing on this picture.
700

I like the way you turned the drive in that direction but you need to hide the wires or they will show through the front of the case.. but I love the Idea.. I think we should work on this Idea further.. It is really a great idea for wire management for this case.

No, not really. Unfortunately. Poor people. Would like to question the wisdom of putting all the factories in one place like that. In the middle of a earthquake/typhoon/flooding zone. tongue.gif

Man! I want a Trooper soooo bad. But, as my Momma would say, it's an 'I want' not an 'I need'.

Yeah I'd like to hide the wiring too... thought you cannot easily see them through the drive bay covers with the LEDs behind. Unfortunately I was limited by my PSU cables. Kinda bugs me SATA connects only one way. Would have preferred coming up from the bottom and mounting everything (including SSD) in the lowest rack. The fans limit what can cable directly behind.

It's a good setup for gfxcard cooling, plenty of direct airflow in that area straight from the box.

My next idea is to bend the cage tabs in so they can be removed from the front. A fine line between aesthetically pleasing and user friendliness.

Man! I want a Trooper soooo bad. But, as my Momma would say, it's an 'I want' not an 'I need'.

The guy at the gun store said the same thing to me when I said "I need xxx accessory for my shotgun"

he said

"This is a shop of wants, not needs."

Great phrase.

Also, not all of them were there, and most are already back up and running they said, the HDD Shortage is actually made up, proven fact.

A high end case like this is always a want.

It's an annoyance to be honest that the hard drives are rear facing. I like hard drives with the SATA facing the right of the case, with the fans parallel to the GPUs for cooling performance.

Btw, if anybody wants to get fan filters or longer screws for the side fans, get M3 x 35mm screws.

Unfortunately this is correct. The shortage wasn't really a shortage, just a temporary ripple in production. Now its just retailers taking advantage

It's very sad. I just got a PS3 and I am using it as a MEdia Server...so now instead of burning & deleting stuff, I keep it.

So I thought I'd pick up one of those 3-4TB HDD's out there that were going for like 120$ just 6 months ago. Now they're @ 250$...no thanks.

Kind of like the owners of the Gas Stations playing with the Gas Prices at the pump to make a higher profit margin off the gas. I see 4 and 5 cent differences all the time and some even of a dime difference.
