Just that, does anyone know of a sleeve to use empty 5.25 bays for 3.5 HDs?

It would make a whole lot of things easier. My case only has 3 HD bays while it has five 5.25 bays, 3 of which are empty.

I was thinking of getting a new case with more HD bays but thought of this idea yesterday.

I expect that there is something for this out there but being unfamiliar with it and not being able to find anything in a search I chose to ask here where there is usually someone knowledgeable about what you're looking for.

So... anyone...

I use braces, acquired several years ago, for such.

The post by Koan Yorel depicts similar/same.

All kinds of stuff out there to do this...



The rails linked to above are available from Directron for 99 and they can usually be found for cheap or free at a local mom and pop computer shop.
