Fitting 4 (+?) 3.5" drvs in the Shuttle SH87R6?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi I move around alot but am not a fan of laptops so got a Shuttle SH87R6http://global.shuttle.com/products/productsDetail?productId=1707 which kind of suits my needs. The one thing that is bugging me is its factory drive capacity setup. Two things I'd like to consider:
#1 Find a 5.25" bay rack/adapter that would allow me to fit two 2.5" and one 3.5 drive (I have some 1tb 2.5" drives I'd like to use up) so that is question one as I have only been able to find racks that support one 2.5" and one 3.5"
#2 Alternately I was thinking about trying to just stuff a cage (5x3?) in there as I also have a few 3.5" drives but as it comes its not setup to take a cage so I was hoping that someone might have some ideas more creative than my "bolt it in" idea (which could be messy as I don't have a bunch of tools and am not the handiest of individuals).

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hmmmm, well a nice poster from another forum pointed me to silverstone http://silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=407&area=en who apparently have exactly what I was looking for, simple, cheap, and will hold the 2.5"+2.5"+3.5" setup i was hoping for. So if anyone is interested know you know.
