  1. First of all, you can buy fan controllers at 3.5" or 5.25". Secondly the bay below your card reader is a 3.5" bay and will fit your fan control just fine.

    There are just 3.5 and 5.25 bays, nothing else. ;)

    Then why does it measure 4 inches exactly?

    I'm not saying your wrong i'm just really curious why it measures 4 inches.
  4. Looks like it's for some spare space, if it tight it will be hard time to install it..

    This. ^^

    The case openings are a bit larger than the drives, for obvious reasons. Besides, if you measure it larger it will fit for sure, because drive sizes are standardized. ;)
  7. Are you measuring length or width? Internal or external?
