Default Re: do'es my case have adequate ventilation for a 3rd HDD?

my ultimate goal is to only have 5400RPM storage HDDs internalley I have 3 HDD cages,
then have a SSD for just OS. (I was planning on mounting it w/ 3M double sided tape on bottom of case just behind the front vent where I was planning the fan to be a intake and for a breeze on the SSD.
remove the current 7200RPM OS HDD (heat producer) and use it in a external inclosure or my a dock station.

My MOBO has 6 SATA ports is it possiable to have more than three internal storage HDD.


BTW this PC is used as a TV DVR recorder. I plan on ripping blue rays and forsee a need for extra storage.

If you want more than 3 internal you'll have to get creative with mounting, I'd grab a cheapy case from Newegg that can fit more drives. You can add as many drives as you have SATA ports for, just keep in mind that PSU may need an upgrade at some point.
