personally i think the floppy drive is the biggest eyesore on the front of any case. is there any possible way to stealth this outdated but necessary drive?

alternatively, you could sit with a dremel and some files and make a new faceplate out of the old nice cover (for if you had a lian-li or coolermaster etc).

or, you could mount it at the back of the computer (not like it is ever needed :)) if you have a antec / chieftec / enermax / thermatake style case (they are all chieftec cases rebadged, even the antec rails say cheiftec) you could mount it conviniently above the PSU facing out the back (makes it fairly accessable yet still hidden)

heres what i did. since i have an antec performance 2 case i took the plastic drive cover snapped off the tabs that hold it in then put in two thumbscrews as handles. it looks really cool cuz i went all the way up all the drives. the flopppy is mounted back further and when i want to use it i just remove the bay cover.

or to be creative, u could cut some tabs from the top of the case(still having them attached) and bend them back so that u could put screws through the metal tabs and mount the drive on the top of the case, pointing up. i once did this on an old desktop computer, i was just bored.

how often do you use the floppy drive? cus yea its ugly and if theres a spare 3.5 cover why not just stick it inside your compy... outta site... where if you need it you can use it but forget bout it otherwise...

what i was saying was to have the drive still inside the case. just cut like an H in the case going from the left to right(sideways from front case view) and if u want it hidden u could make some little door. either have it hinge or have it slide to hide it.
