Recommended Posts

I feels empty. Should I stick a dvd reader for nostalgia sake so I dont have to plug an external USB one everytime I wanted to use a dvd? any ideas?

If it's too much of a hassle to plug in an external optical drive, sticking one in the 5.25" bay makes sense.

Cupholder/12v car plug/cigarette lighter combo?

 

 

Or y'know, a card reader or something.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Don't listen to them?

 

Put in anything you want, or nothing at all.  Mine is blank for my fans.

And you're just gonna listen to them?

 

I say if it's more convenient for you to buy an internal ODD, then by all means, go for it.

I judge people who have optical discs. I'm just better than them, what can you do? Plebs.

 

(If you actually use CDs, go for it. Otherwise, I'd use it for more front io or quick swap storage)

If you leave it blank, you can put fans higher in the front.  Otherwise you have to scoot them down a little.  Personal preference of course.

Doesn't it leave an akward space if you don't use the bay? wehter you remove it and place the fans higher or not, there will be a gap if you don't use it. an ODD gives it a nice retro feeling and if i needed to read a disk i wouldn't need to plug in some external usb as im really lazy

Naw, since the door is closed you can't tell anyway.
