As shown already the 900D has four tool-free 5.25in drive bays for easy drive installation. And, as explained, it has a bunch of HDD/SSD cages as well. The 900D comes standard with three HDD cages which support both 3.5 inch and 2.5 inch drives in any combination. Here's how you install the actual HDD.
Each cage will support three individual drives and that brings in support for up to 9 drives total. You can easily remove these. You place the HDD in a tray, slide it backwards in the cage and secure it with the hinge. It is as simple as that. The HDD hangs in rubber inserts. One such tray can be used for an SSD as well, these are secured with four screws at the bottom side of the tray.
Interesting fact, the lower front cage is equipped with a SATA 6G hot-swap backplane circuit board to allow for up to three storage drives to be quickly connected and disconnected.
Right, we are moving back to the front-side again as there is some bezel stuff going on we have not told you about just yet. Have a peek at the lower aluminum bezel insert.
The front side panel is actually brushed aluminum, if you pull it forward you can take it out. You'll then notice removable and washable dust filter for intake fans.
Behind it you can see the three supplied and preinstalled 120mm intake fans, these are AF120L fans, all creating good airflow yet remaining silent. These are PWM controlled. The one thing missing however is some sort of fan controller on the 900D. In this price range we really expected it to have it in some sort of form or way.
