    They should have put in hot swap trays. Much better system, especially on a NAS box.

    You can rip out the drive bay and stick in five 5.25" hot-swap bays, which will be nicely hidden behind the lockable door. Downside: that also gets rid of the only intake fan, so things could get a little toasty in there.

    7 drives on mini-ITX? Pretty sweet; my wife's P8H87-I has 6. That case isn't that small though.

    EDIT: Oh it's got a graphics card spot..!? and it's not hot-swap. Uhh, jack of all trades..

    lian li has tones of 5.25" to hotswap converter, even with fans ... so it's not an issue. Example: 3x 5.25" to 4x 3.5" with hotswap, 120mm fan and washable fan filter

    Lili also has 2x 5.25" to hotswap that would suite this case. they also sell hotswap backplane for there case. They prolly are the maker that provides the more accessories for there products.
