I would first like to thank all the posters for the great info available on this forum. It's been very helpful. Reviews are great, but I'd much rather hear from the end-users themselves.
My question: I have 4 drive bays left open. I am think of installing 3 optical drives, but that would mean having to place a couple of them right on top of each other. Does this radically shorten their life, due to the extra heat/lack of air flow? How tightly can you pack optical drives in a case?
