What do I need to buy to fit another IDE drive in an Elements S chassis?

Recommended Posts

I've got an Element S Chassis + 960W PSU with 2x1TB HDD plus 1x64GB Flash drive.

 

I've also got a 2TB drive left over from a defunct PVR that I'd like to fit.

 

I've had the side off and there's plenty of room in the drive bay and what look like spare IDE connectors but no caddys for fitting extra drives.

 

My questions:

  • Where can I get hold of a suitable caddy to hold the drive, and what's the part number I should be looking for?
  • Is there anything else I need to consider?

 

I won't be offended if you assume I know nothing about PC internals.

 

Cheers,

sdf

Hello sdf

 

The drive bay is actually quite special on this case, please check the below picture for details

After installing them you can slide your drive straight into the drive bay

Hi Andy,

 

Slide in assembly sounds almost foolproof ;-)

 

Are those standard drive screws (which I have to hand) or a special part?

 

If they're a specific item what's the part number?

 

Thanks,

sdf

Hello Sdf, 

 

They come with the case, there should be quite a few of them :)
