This is what I did. I even have them turned 90 degrees so that the cables come out the 5.25 cage toward the back side panel. So when I open my side panel, you cant even see my SSD and HDD without looking for them.

Isn't it vibrating a lot? I did that in my old case (TT Armor) And had a hard time getting rid of the noise caused by vibrations!

If you turn a Hdd 90 degrees and put it in a 5.25 bay then there is no room for Any shock absorbing stuff! the length of a 3.5 drive is 5.25!

I am using a Nexus DoubleTwin bracket, which had dampers. But I removed the rubber dampers and used the bracket to mount my SSD and HDD together. With the right configuration, it fits perfectly into a single bay.

Like Arjan said, turn a 3.5 drive sideways, makes it 5.25. Then with my drives stacked together, they are the same EXACT height of a 5.25 bay. So it fits in perfectly, and snuck. I guess the fit is so tight, that I dont get any vibrations. With all my fans on low, which is about 1300RPM across the board, I cant hear my WD black at all.

But I can here my WD black in my HTPC, which is a modded ANTEC 300 with my 600T's HDD rack.

Either the drives fit in my 600T is so tight that I dont get vibrations, or I have a nice and quiet WD black, or mounting the WD black upside-down makes it run better.

EDIT: 7th picture down shows my HDD and SSD setup.

Wow you are really packing it all in. Gonna weigh 50 kilos by the time you are done.

I can't imagine SSDs vibrating much:D

I am thinking about ditching my fan controller and using the ROG software/fan program thing. This is my first ROG board, so I am not sure how well it works as a long term solution. I know a bunch of people have a Crosshair, any input on how well it performs as a fan controller?

If you are talking about fan xpert, it works great for the CPU header with PWM fans on my Maximus III Formula. Make your own 3 point profile and never look back as it seems to save it and you don't have to have the program open for it to keep working. Other than that not much to say about it.

Thats what I was thinking about. Only PWM though, I was hoping it could do it by volts too.
