^none at all. when i tried to see if it would fit, only about an inch of the hdd goes in and if i were to let go it would fall.

i would just let the hard drive lie down on the bottom of the case, but im pretty sure that isnt safe lol.

i wouldnt say the duct is a bad thing. it helps to kepp the air flowing to where it is needed. uder it there should be a heatsink on the processor and a fan on the back of ur case pulling air out thriugh the back past the heatsink
