Default Kind of a weird question.

Maybe 100% pointless, But I was wondering since I have two floppy bays just empty, If there was small fans I could add in them? Or something for that matter.

You probably could. It's just a matter of, getting fans that fit in there.

Yeah, I thought so... I looked over new egg, I would think someone would sell them? But I don't really know what to look under! What would they be called? Floppy drive fans? LOL

Never seen a floppy drive fan, but I have seen fans for the optical drive bays over at ThinkGeek that have an intake and outtake in one unit.

Yes, they are called drive bay coolers. Usually have 2 or 3 fans in them.

Yeah I think Killer is spot on what I'm looking for. I can't do any 5.25 bays since mine are all full.
