yes it has one.
just above the lower compartment (hdd's and PSU)
All drives do really fit perfect, as everything else.

the only thing to keep in mind is the length of the atx power connector,
but with my antec psu i have at least 10cm left.

If you want to know if it is reading, put your head next to the case. That is not necessarily true. If the hard disk is reading from it's cache or when it is reading from the places it heads are already positioned at, then it wouldn't make a sound, but it is reading / writing something. Therefore t...

audio players like winamp have their own audio control, this can make your music play very softly, to hear it you have to boost the master volume excesive. If then windows plays a sound, it will blast you away from your chair. Try to set all volume controls to the maximum, and the master volume to a...

I am using a DQ6 because i read it is so far the best support for C2D and its also going to support the Vista thats about to be out. The Vista support isn't dependent on the motherboard, so whatever you choose is OK. I can advise you to get a decent brand, it has far better support, that saves a lo...

I should advise you to first listen at your case when you have installed everything before you start damaging your case.
With the fan's on low speed I don't think it would change anything, except the value of your antec p180.

Even if you have a tight budget, don't buy "el cheapo" or other strange brands. Just keep it with decent and good hardware. The driver support is much better with quality hardware, and in my opinion the savings aren't worth the trouble. I have seen so much crap with "el-cheapo" drivers, strange beha...

I can see that 266 is (mathematically) a common factor of 1066, 800 and 533 whereas 667 is not - is that the crux of the issue? 266 * 2,5 = 667 "the crux of the issue" seems to be FSB bandwidth, nothing else. Intel uses a quad pumped FSB, so the effective frequency can be seen as 266 * 4 = 1066 The...
