    Hi all,

    What exciting product can we put in 5.25" drive bay?

    I have Antec lan boy air and I just hate those 5.25 drive bay covers and I want to replace them with some new 5.25 drive stuff.

    Well, I have already bought NZXT sentry mix 6 channel fan controller buy still have 2 drives to go.

    I am using external dvd writter and dont want to buy those logo havinf dvd writers in there.

    Please suggest.

    below is my system

    If you can't think of anything, you don't need to put anything there.

    He's just being pragmatic... and snarky. Looking at the pics, I couldn't even see where the bay was.

    I think you will need to find one used, I do believe that is an EOL product.

    Now that you ask a more specific question, I can give you more of a specific answer. Btw, my comments are not harsh, they are direct and honest. I'm not here to blow smoke.

    I'd save your money for a video card since you don't have one listed in your specs.

    I used to have one of these in one of my bays, it was great to keep all my USB cords, thumb drives and such.

    Hi all thanks for your valuable replies. (I must say this techpowerup.com has done massive help in buying right stuf for me right from MB decision.)
    Well Antec Lan boy has front drawer to keep small stuffs like scews and all. I wan to keep stuff like a gadget.
    I would have liked to go or card reader but none card reader which I surfed does not come with cover:banghead:
    I want to make my system more of show case gadget which will have most of the things to show off. I am also planning for remote start stuff. had I been in your country it would have damn easy for me, here in India I almost have to pay double the price of gadget.

    Moreover this Antec Lan Boy air as suggested is really a modular cabinet, ohhhhmy we can change its positions many time to make different look, had it been liittle taller ad wide,it would have been master piece.

    WELL yes, I am going to plan for graphics card after 5 months or so ,not needed now ,not game lover as of now.(I will at least invest $300 in it.)

    What erocker mentioned in latest post is also hard to get here in India.

    EDIT:- Well I really dont know whether the NZXT Sentry mix shown as below put off the fans completely or not as I am yet to buy 4 pin molex to 3 pin female adapter. IF NOT THEN WOULD ALMOST BE A WASTE OF MONEY FOR ME. do you know about it?

    Wait are you talking about that empty space between and under the giant fans? I think not having anything there adds to the look.
