    If you don't plan on putting fans on the bottom of the case, you can just sit your 2 or more extra drives on the bottom of the case.
    This is my Air 740 I'll use as an example, 2 of my drives are just sitting on the bottom of the case.

    I get home at roughly 4pm Central time. I think I have a solution for you already made, but you'll need a friend with a 3D Printer.

    It's a 3D Printed Top/Bottom piece which acts like a HDD cage and sandwiches four 3.5" HDDs and has a built-in mount for a 120mm fan to cool them. I cannot access my TinkerCAD account at work to look it up, but I'm absolutely certain it will work for your needs.

    You can then install the other 2 HDDs in the stock location

    If you still need a 4 hdd bay to put in your case pm me an email address so i can send you the .STL file (for a 3D Printer to print the 4 hdd bay)
