    CCD MI-6: Performance in a 6.7L MIcrotower

    Hi, new member here. On the first page you wrote the ability to mix and match up to 6 HDD/SSDs, are those 2.5" drives only, or can I fit 2x 3.5" HDD in the case (1 in the side panel above the motherboard, 1 in the front) ? Is the cost target (less than $150, and a stretch goal of under $100)...
