    Hard drive cage

    Does anyone know where I can get a hard drive cage that I can mount on the bottom of my case behind the front fan? My case is pretty full with two optical drives, two hard drives, a card reader and FDD. Anyway I would like to move the hard drives closer to a fan. If I can't buy one a cage somewhere I guess I could try to build one or rip one out of an older case.

    Don't know what case you have but why can't you just put the fan in front of the drives? Even if you had to use cable ties or zip ties to rig it up, it would be a much easier alternative than placing an unanchored hard drive cage in the bottom of your case. Do you have anything that resembles ventilation holes in front of your hard drives?
