If that aint enuff you can put a few more between the SSD Bays and PSU, several more on top of that SSD bay and untold in the Optical bays, reckon you could get 20 in there......
I'm out of room in general, not just hard drives, my back panel is bulging from the cabling.
and for example in the p180 they are mounted in rubber grommets that dampens the vibration all you can hear is a slight click of the read head moving.
right now if I place a glass of water on the floor it will ripple from the movement.
also you may reckon you can get 20, but where are you going to plug them in? addon 1k raid card?, what about powering them.. separate case with a power supply to power them?
