The 5x 3.5'' to 3x 5.25'' is installed as its supposed to. Only "mod" related to that was bending the 5.25'' bay fingers in the middle out of the way as this particular one does not have these cut ins. The case itself modded by a fair amount. It started its life as Revoltec Fifty 3.

The SATA backplates are
3x3.5'' to 2x5.25'' : INTER-TECH SNT-2131 SS
5x3.5'' to 3x5.25'' : INTER-TECH SNT-3051 SAS
4x2.5'' to 1x5.25'' : CHIEFTEC ATM-1042S
1x3.5'' to 1x5.25'' : Thermaltake N0023SN
I'll redo the internals after 16th August when I'm getting some new parts (and some time). Some problems emerged during the build that resulted in less than optimal loop and negated my feeble efforts on cable management so it's all rats nest of wires inside. I also found out that green lights dont go well with red tubing resulting in sort of brownish look.
