i need to know more about mounting options for hard drives,i've got two hd's and my floppy shoehorned into the drive cage that came with the box and the heat is oulandish.
I've ordered a hd cooler and need to look into buying another cage or mounting option.
anyone tell me where to buy one?

Can you mount your drives int he 5.25 bay? I mount my hot 7200 rpm hdds on rails in bays under the cd-roms. (At least I have one in a hidden 3.5 and one on rails in the 5.25 bay).
Sorry, not good with case mods like that, but I bet a local puter shop would GIVE you one if they had an old dead case laying around.
What country are you in? I just bought a hard drive mounting kit for a 5.25" bay here in the UK for £8 from www.ukpc.net
If you're in the states (or some other countries) you might be able to get one from www.insight.com
EDIT: I just found one at insight.com for $6 and they're in stock

I mis-stated myself,what i need is a bigger 3.5 cage which is currently full with a 20 gig,60 gig,floppy and zip.thanks for the link tho dudster,i bought a hd cooler from them that will mount between my cdrom and burner.(thx dave)OR a mountable 5.25 cage big enough for all four devices.( i can always mount all the drives on rails.)
Oh, I see I can't help you with that but if I were you, I'd post a thread on the Gamer's HQ forums at www.madonion.com There seem to be quite a few people there severely into case mods n stuff. I'd also look into getting a new case with more drive bays (3.5" 5.25" or both). Another thing, if your case is a good brand, maybe you can buy a bigger cage for it.
ok,thx for the info,will give it a shot.
You can get a mobile hdd tray that mounts in a 5.25 bay.Most good ones have a built-in fan.They can be found for less than $20US.
