Default Hot Swap Question

Thermaltake Level 10 Series Level 10 GTS Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

For this case would it be ok to leave the HD's In the hot swap bay?

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P - Newegg.com

Yup. Just remember, the p means there is no IGP.

I will be honest.

The hot swap bays are awesome but you have to make sure your motherboard, OS and hard drives are capable of utilizing hot-swappable technology properly.

Unless you will use this as a server with a 4 disc Raid 5 or 2 disc Raid 1 on a database, I could not see a use for it.

You could find a full tower case for a similar price or an even cooler mid tower case for even less.

Pretty much what I was getting at with my other comment. I'm just not going to tell somebody what case to get.
Simply having drives in there are fine.
