Oh yes, this is ugly. And probably dangerouse, as the tape might just weaken.

If you can, strap them on the front of the case, or on the PSU (I did it before). OR you could make a plate (aluminium? plastic?), put 2x 4 holes, screw it to the top bar of the case, and it would make a tidier version of my tape/ cable ties monster...

As mentioned, you could fit these two SSDs behind the front cover of the case, right under the fans.. And you don't even need to velcro them, mine is just stuck there and doesn't move thumb.gif

I've attached mine using double sided tape, but velcro seems like a slightly more elegant solution.

On the "inside" right under the fans the area ist fully blocked by the psu. Thinking of going with the idea of HZCH and using a spare 3.5 to 2.5 converter plate and screwing that to the case.

There is some space in the front cover - might me just enough room to fit one ssd and routing the cables (like the power button/led cables) through the hole inside the case.

They are talking about mounting it between the case and the front plastic cover. Right underneath the two fans.

Cool, thanks for illustrating this with a pic.
post #6737 of 7113
Anyone not running any fans in the front? Any positives/negatives?

It seems that at reasonable noise levels, the exhaust fan (noctua 150mm) creates negative pressure in the case, and I was just concerned with dust getting in through the grills on the side of the case. I was thinking about not having the front fans in the interest of just having less wiring/noise.
post #6740 of 7113
Having front fans should help temps for drives and cpu if you're using an air cooler. But it's not going to be a huge difference. I wouldn't bother about dust as the vents are too small to let a lot of it through.
