5.25" Drive Bay
5.25" drive bays
There are three available 5.25-inch device bays, which support removable-media devices such as CD-ROM's or tape backup drives. These bays support 5.25-inch devices, as well as 3.5-inch devices with adapter brackets. Devices in these bays are held in place by a metal bracket attached to the front of the chassis by four screws, two along each side of the drive bays. Each unused device bay is covered by a metal RF shield to reduce RFI emissions. Each RF shield slides into the bay on rails and is held in place by the same metal bracket as the drive.
