Yer, or if you don't need hot swap capability (like I don't) then just something simple like this, but spray paint it black or white or what ever colour you desire.

Means you can retain the stock look of the front of your case too.

I picked one of those up a year ago and had that unit in my 10+ year old case, but it didnn't fit in my Corsair Carbide 400R

Also it may say it holds 3 hard drives, but they better be 2.5" or it's going to be overheat city

That said, it was great for a couple 2.5"ers in the case it fit in - the filter is very easy to clean and then fan was quiet

This is perfect indeed.
Yes, paint them black will be a priority smile.gif

Will the slidding supports that come with the hdd bay slide in there too?
post #4055 of 4609
no they wont fit. those brackets make the 3.5 inch drive 5.25 wide. the case is made to accept the slides attached to the hdd.

ok just to see if i understood correctly.
these brackets make it possible to put 3.5" hdds in the optical bay, right?
to put there an ssd i have to get a bracket that converts 2.5" to 3.5", right?
post #4057 of 4609
right. that means a bracket bolted to a bracket to put an ssd in a 5.25. it would be easier to just 2 side tape it the case somewhere.

Or get one of these Sharkoon 5.25"bay extensions which will fit either 4 SSD's or 1 3.5" drive and 2 SSD's.
