15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

Rails For 5.25" Drives

Antec has decided to go with rails for DVD or CD drive installation. The rails are screwed directly onto the drives and then inserted in one of the empty drive bays. The solution is an elegant one - unless you want to install a 2" deep fan speed controller without any additional perforations. In that case, the controller droops down, marring the appearance of your front panel.

5.25" drives like DVDs or burners are attached to the case using rails.

Small displays - like our test one here - don’t get much support from these drive rails.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
