My System Specs

Default Need something novel or fancy for a 3.5" bay

Tired of 2 empty bays doing nothing and looking like black tape patches on my case.
For the love of sweet Buddha, no Floppy drives, card readers, or fan controllers. Any ideas?

A great way to fill that empty space is with a SSD drive...

wtf 3of7, you just screwed with Buddha man! :rtfm: lol. No, just kidding.

I'm going to 2nd the iBox. I love mine. Its great for all of us modders that tweak things out in/around our case almost daily. Saves me trips to the tool room too!
