    Thermaltake Shark Case Review - Installing Drives


    (Page 4 of 6 )

    The blanking plates in the front of the case actually contain rails that are screwed onto the side of your optical drives, which then slot neatly into the case.  Once they are attached to the drives, adding and removing them to change jumper sittings or whatever becomes tool and hassle free.  There are a total of five 5.25 drive bays.

    The floppy-drive or card-reader (or both) are housed in a cage that once again, slots in and out of the case without the use of tools.  This is also based on a rail system for your convenience.

     

    Inside the case are a further five drive bays for your hard-drives; each of these bays provide a cradle that clicks out of the chassis and screws onto your HDD.  Shock pads and EMI shielding can help protect your drives, provided you can correctly work out which of the screws provided you are supposed to use.  There is a clear inch of space between each of the drive cradles that can help heat to dissipate, another clear sign of Thermaltake design quality.

    Iíve described each of these products as tool-free and what I mean by this is that the various components, motherboard, drives, etc, are removed or inserted without using tools.  To actually change the motherboard, you would need to use a screw driver to release it from the seating pillars.  But all of these features are still excellent time savers because it is far easier just to unclip a hard drive and then unscrew it from the rails once it is free from the cage rather than having to get the whole case out of your desk and almost take the whole thing apart just to get to the drives retaining screws.
