Didn't know they made something like that. I only have one spare 5.25 and one spare 3.5. I think this TS130 has 2 - 5.25, 2 - 3.5 and 2 - 2.5. I know they make a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter. Probably will just pick one of those up for now but that hot-swap bay will give me options when I can expand things a little. Thanks!!
