    Drive Bay Ideas

    Hi,

    im just on the verge of finishing my new PC and have just started filling my drive bays (all 6 of them) at the moment i have 2 drives and a LCD screen covering 2 spaces.

    However the top 2 bays are empty. I put the blank spacers back in and it looks pretty crappy, everything else in the bays are nice and silver where as the top two are just black spacers.

    Any ideas on what i can fill my top 2 bays with, i hate these spaces sitting empty

    Note: i already have a card reader & fan controller installed

    Any ideas appreciated

    Cheers
