11x 3.5" drives not including the 2x 2.5" trays on the psu shroud.

They're not available for sale from Fractal Design but they might be with enough demand: https://support.fractal-design.com/support/solutions/articles/4000114305-can-i-purchase-an-additional-tg-side-panel-or-additional-hdd-ssd-trays-for-the-define-r6-

They finally listed trays on the EU website but theyre "out of stock." Might want to keep an eye on it though...

11 HDD's is the max it can fit (pic from internet)

Hey guys, does somebody knows how many HDDs I can fit into the Fractal Define R6, If I use every option/space available?

Can I fit 10 in it? (and more)

 

If I put more trays

I know I can put one more HDD by using the 5.25 drive bay and convert it into a HDD bay

 

 I'm pretty sure I can fit at least 12 in the case I just need the trays, where do I get the trays?

 I noticed that we can switch the trays but Fractal does not sells the actual trays separately, can I get some trays from another brand? willl they fit?

 

 

 

 

I have 14 x 6TB and I want to plug the most possible into one PC because I am planning to buy a new build , my main problem has always been to choose the best case, It's been maybe more than one year since I don't know which one to choose, The Define XL can fit many but there is no side panel window, it's kind of boring because of this, so, if you have an idea which case should I use, if not the R6 or XL

@Slottr

They already say it in the specs that it can fit 6 HDDs

 

I know there is 6 tray, but I'm sure it can fit a lot more , like 12 at least if you look at the HDD section

I am looking to know how much it can fit at most

 

and also if there is a way to put more trays in the case

 

If somebody can tell me it would be really appreciated

At least 4 more from the images.

If you fill it up with drives you won't get any airflow to the rest of the computer.

Also no you can't use drive sleds form other brands.

Contact fractal design to see if they can send you some, or buy them from someone else with an R6.

Ok for starters, why are you filling your computer with 14x6TB drives?

 

That kind of storage is usually better suited for a dedicated computer operating as a NAS for increased redundency.

@CUDAcores89 , I want to fill my PC with all these HDDs because I want to have them available, and I don't have double the money to protect my files, my solution for this is to duplicate the important files to some other drives and If there's happen to be a failure, I will quickly transfer the files to another working drive, while the failing HDD is still working.


I have a lot of music that I want to have quick access to.
