I have a 120GB SSD that will be going into the 2.5" cages. 1 bluray drive (player, dvd burner) going in the bottom drive bay on the front. My PSU is a Corsair HX850, so cables shouldn't be an issue, and I'm hoping that I can run all the fans off mobo headers (2x intake, 1x exhaust) to keep cable clutter to an absolute minimum
There's a dozen places to tie down cables there even if you had to cover the bottom with wires tongue.gif

You can use this to get an idea of having no fans on, though you might get better temperatures~

Right now its 23c in my basement, C and D are mounted in the 5.25 bays, D is a 7200rpm drive and C is a SSD. G and B are in the hotswap bays and neither run over 5900rpm, E and F are 2.5 HDDs, H is an external connected to USB though... didn't know that was still plugged in actually redface.gif

Some one did far back in the thread. It was a royal PITA according to him, and it required some inventive soldering and deconstructions of the power button, but he did it. I changed my HDD and DVD drive LED's and called it good, plus they were simple as hell to do.

Unless your running some hot, fast and large HDD's below, I would really bother with it unless your just going for completness. I run a SSD and WD Caviar, so I didn't bother.

Just wondering...is anyone else experiensing trouble with the xdock bays? I tried to fit a couple of 3.5" HDD but I had no luck at all.


They should fit just fine unless your putting them in the trays wrong, which is pretty hard to do. Pics will help

True, but if people really do need that many 3.5'' drives, this isn't the case for them in the first place. Many many other case options for the data mongers

For exhaust, no not really. But I would imagine having top fan for intake would result in some real nice temp drops for obvious reasons, but you'll suck in a crap ton of dust as a tradeoff

How have you mounted you 3.5" HDD in the 5.25" slot? I can't exactly figure out from the image
post #1579 of 10491
Can the front 120mm intake fans and the optional 140mm fans (on the inside) be mounted simultaneously?

You should be able to if you mount the 120s first, then the 140s, they have separate mounting holes... but I'm not sure why you'd want to do that.
