Yep, exactly. Its if you have a 3.5" card reader (or a floppy drive =P), and wanna mount it. There should be a bay shield with a rectangle cut out of it, as well.

I see I see.

Anyways, Awsome of Antec to give me the 3 extra fans, I only had room for 2 of them, so one gets thrown into my old Brisbane rig when I find a power supply for it.. Speaking of rigs, the final piece of my Wolfdale rig just came, Now I get to bask in its glory, the case really is a stunner... compared to my old generic black box.

it takes like, 5 seconds to change the pin slots on fan connectors. or maybe i misunderstand?

Needs to change from a 4 pin molex to a 3 pin motherboard header.

So he basically needs to cannibalize a couple 3 to 4 pin converters.

roger that. i thought he meant changing the pin-outs on the 3-pin connectors.
fans are cheap, thats what i say.

yeah, the three 120's that come with the case come with four pin molex connectors with two wires in them. Id need to find a 4 pin to 3 pin with the 3pin being a female end. All the controllers that ive seen have 3 pin males . All the adapters I find are male ends on the 3 pin. Guess Ill get four of these
