    Drive Installation

    Once the 3.5"drives are in place, you can move to the 5 1/4 bays.

    The 5 1/4 drives mount with simple plastic rails, so all one has to do is screw two rails onto each drive with two screws per rail and slide them into place.

    Before we can shut the door on our newly mounted drives, we need to unscrew the drive bay cover plates from the door.  That's right... they don't snap off.  They screw off!  No chance on accidentally knocking a few block off plates out carrying the PC to the next LAN party (Admit it!  It's happened!)

    Now that our drives are installed in front of the case, we can move to the side where we're going to mount our hard drives.  The drive trays slide right out of the side.  In the above photo you can see the rubber grommets that help isolate any noise from vibration.

    Above you can see where I've mounted the hard drive in the "normal" fashion with the connectors facing the window.  But if you want to completely hide your IDE and power cables....

    ...Ultra allows you to slide the drive tray in from the other side.  Making the cables completely transparent to your on-looking buddies.  Boo-yeah!
