Hi,

The computer I use all the time has four 5.25” external bays, two are taken by DVD drives/burners, but I think my case will look better if I fill them up with something.

So...I would like to know everything that could be placed in 5.25” drive bay, from CPU temperature to an actual coffee cup holder :)

Thanks in advance
:D

I'd also suggest checking the power supply before you start filling up the drive bays ;) 1) there may not be extra connectors, and 2) it may not be able to power that many devices ;)

There are any number of items that will fit in a 5 1/4 bay; optical drives, accessory devices that are card readers, temp monitoring, usb / firewire connectors, tape drives. The list goes on and on. You can even put a 3 1/2 hd in using drive rails.

In reality I think your case will look fine with just the plastic covers that come in unused bays.

It is cheaper also.

I have a Multifunction controller. My case had USB/Firewire ports on the top (I don't know why Thermaltake does that! :rolleyes: ) and since my case is under a desk, that does me no good--in fact, it won fit with the cover open--so I moved the connections to the front--the one I have has everthing but the kitchen sink--what I like are the front SATA ports since I have an external sata drive. It also has four mulitmedia card readers, fan controller, etc.

How much power do you suppose that cup holder takes? :D

Probably depends on what size bottle of wine you stick in it :p

That is the new top of the line heated model. The downside is that it requires the output of a small nuclear reactor:) :) :) or a P4 prescott
