Default 3 extra 3.5" drive bays

greetings, Canucks =D

looking for some thoughts on what to do with 3 extra 3.5" drive bays i have in a Lian Li PC-65B. i want to throw some cooling in there that will push air across the motherboard and videocard. there won't be any drives installed in there, at all.

i'm gonna remove the bottom hard drive cage and use a Scythe rafter to move the HDD up to the 5.25" slots, so i'll have a nice amount of open space beneath the 3.5" bays.

the front of the case does not hide the bay covers when closed. cooling's paramount, but i'd also like it to look attractive. what do you guys think?

scot

EDIT: hmmm, maybe something like this spider filter (80mm version, if i can locate) with a red led fan. 80mm is ~ 3.17 inches (i'm no math wizard), so that might not fit all that well, but you can see where i'm going with this, i guess hehe...

But you have it admit, it would have been a darn good way to mod those drive bays! haha. Good luck
