    Hey Raffaz - how did the drive bay go? I'm thinking about getting one - just wanted your thoughts - pros/cons that you're found?

    Its spot on mate, its well built, and its got a fan on the back for cooling, this can be removed if space is tight, you can also select the warning temp when the fan is attached. It also looks really good in my tower. Pic below :)

    That thing looks like it is 3 feet tall raff. Nice! Are those 2 black squares at the bottom more room for extra bays if needed?

    Na, they are fan covers, you just press the front of them and the cover opens so that you can clean the filters.:)

    Thanks for the info and photo - they look good in there.
    I've been working out my exact needs and probably will go with a single removable caddy - but thanks for the info anyway.

    It's a work of art, mate. I love my P180B... the predecessor to the P182.

    Hi, nice case.
    First post here.
    Im intrerested in getting a drive caddy like yours but im interested in how the drives connect to the caddy and in turn how the caddy connects to the motherboard and psu? Could you post a few small pics?
    Anything would be much appreciated!

    Hi and welcome to CF!

    If you follow the Dabs link given you will find the info you want.

    In this case the answer appears to be SATA2 for both questions.
