That is crazy awesome. If I ever do another ATX build I will have to include that.



Any other crazy things to put in 5.25" bays?


I didn't realize they had drawers, I thought that was a really neat idea.

I have four 5.25" bays in my case: one houses a DVD burner, another a blu-ray combo drive and the other two hold storage drawers. It's a convenient place to stow my installation and driver disks and other items.

Well that's just stupid.

You're going to run a resistance heater off the PSU? I'd be seriously concerned about the integrity of the PSU and the wiring given the amperage you need for a heater like that compared to the draw of regular PC equipment. Then there's the heat. You're putting a several hundred degree heat source inside your tower. Then there's the crumbs.

I get that it's a joke thing but that has to be the singular worst idea I have ever seen for a PC.

Yeah, didn't think about the heat.

Maybe a fridge would be better. :P

I'm not convinced that you do.

Considering the things I've seen done to computers, this is pretty mild.

There hasn't been a 5.25" drive in 15+ years. I am doubting kids nowadays even know what a floppy drive is anymore.

Standard desktop CD/DVD/Blue-Ray drives are 5.25" wide, thus those bays are 5.25" bays.

Well then this is why I generally don't talk about computers.

I can talk about the merits of a smoked stout or porter as a replacement diet for real food and I can talk about sports....

There's a PC tech joke, which would be funnier if there weren't stories it actually happened. An uneducated PC owner asks a support tech about a problem with the "cup holder." After some confusion the tech determines the user meant the CD-Rom drive!
