Hi guys and girls. My first post here.


I'm looking at getting one of the P4 based xc cubes. I will be moving my P4 2.6C, my radeon 9800pro, my dvd-rw and a western digital raptor into the system. What I can't seem to find anywhere else is weather there's enough room for a second hard drive(probably one of my 120gb wd se drives). I will not be using a floppy drive in the system.
Would a second drive fit, and would it run ok, will I be short on power and or will the whole system overheat with all that stuff in there?

Thanks for any advice.

There's a 3.5" bay directly under the top CD bay. It will fit a 2nd drive.

I've got one of these and put a second drive in the floppy slot. Note though that the HDD in the floppy drive gets very close, or physically touches, the CD drive. It also runs hot -- the case is warm to the touch.

The only real problem I've had is not being able to burn some DVDs when it gets too hot. But apart from that it's working ok.
