    I second that.
    A rarity nowadays.
    Not everyone has access to a streaming service.
    I still watch movies on a DVD, and being able to do so with a quieter PC would be very welcome.

    I know its not the point but if you see a case you really want that has no 5.25" drive bays you could always buy an external DVBD/Blu ray drive

    The reason I enter these contests, lack of money.
    And to be honest, that isn't a good solution in my opinion.
    For infrequent use, and people who value the result of no bays maybe.
    That might be you, and good for you if it is.
    But that isn't me.

    Maybe not the majority, but that's at least two of us replying who appreciate that option.

    ? Sorry I never said it wasn't appreciated, I just said an external drive might be a solution if you see case that you think you like that doesn't come with the drive bays. I'm a firm believer in having as much choice as possible

    I won this prize... got a parcel yesterday... I knew straight away something was amiss as too small a package to have a case included... got the psu and cpu cooler but no case... I've put the cpu cooler on my aging 2600k but psu is waiting to be installed into the new case if and when it turns up. Fingers crossed...

    Thanks - it's on the way it's coming direct from the company in Germany. We shipped out the other 2 prizes from our office as the case was out of stock.

    Fear not, we are on it.
