    Howdy y'all! Anybody have a Cooler Master Elite 341 cover for the 5.25" bay? The DVD drive in the system failed so I yanked it out, but my OCD is nagging me every night to cover the empty slot. I don't want/need an optical drive in there since I now have a dedicated Win7 installation USB, which was all it was ever used for, so I'm looking to get it covered up.

    It's a long shot, but anybody have one?

    Also notice how the hook thing is about 1mm inside the border of the cover.

    So the stock one is plain black plastic? Can you snap some pics of the back of it so we can get an idea of how the stock on attaches (screws, clips, etc)?

    I have a ton of brushed aluminum ones, but I did find one from my Corsair 300R. It has a very subtle brushed appearance- hardly noticeable. Check out online photos of the 300R for other views of it. Yours for actual shipping costs if it will work.

    The hook on that one looks way too long. It actually looks like a drive bay I have lying around that didn't fit.

    Ahh, I see. Looked like the actual hook part was long enough and that you could trim the excess plastic off :eek: I used to have a few CM cases, I'll keep an eye out for any other drive bay covers.

    I just got off live chat with CoolerMaster USA and they said the case is discontinued so they no longer have parts for it. They also said that none of the other Cooler Master cases have compatible drive covers... I have a feeling my only options are to wait it out, ghetto-mod one on, or suck it up and buy an optical drive for it.

    SORRY FOR THE EXCESSIVE BUMPS!

    so i'm guessing an elite 430 won't work. I'll see if I have one and if it looks anything like yours

    That's what CM says, but if you can get some pictures (or measurements) it'd really help.

    Here are the measurements for my case: [​IMG]

    I have one from an Elite 431 Plus.

    If you want it, just pay for me to ship it. :toast:
