Internal Bays

Whereas the exposed 3.5" bays were awkward for me, I thought that the hard drive mounts were very well thought out. In order to isolate the hard drive vibrations, each hard drive was mounted with special screws on a tray with rubber grommets.

Did they work? Sure. Did they make the HDs quieter? Maybe.

Like the Silverstone, these hard drives slide sideways into the bays which begs the question, did SATA cables fit?

As you can see from the picture, I'm very happy to report that there was plenty of clearance for normal SATA cables. Yes! It's alive!
