Just bemused and venting......................
So as some may know, I was able to upgrade my gaming PC over the Christmas holiday. And of course that got me thinking about finding a new case to replace my long-in-the-tooth Corsair C70.
The situation resulting in this bemusement and ensuring vent (much of it of my own doing because I haven't been paying attention to cases in the last few years) is the difficulty finding a large selection of water-cooling able mid or full size towers that have 3 or more 5.25" drive bays. I know, I know.......... 5.25" drives are going the way of the spotted red-beaked recluse sparrow, but I also have an XSPC dual bay reservoir that needs a suitable home when I move into a new case.
In about 72 hours of searching I've identified six cases that are readily available and match my criteria. So in what decade did case designers decide that we no longer wanted or needed multiple 5.25" drive bays in a case that also supported some sort of internal radiator installation?
