Mid-tower cases sometimes aren't wide or long enough for some of the best add-in components out there, but the new chassis from IT company doesn't have that problem, and it's not because of removable drive bays. The option to remove some or all of the 3.5-inch drive bays in a desktop enclosure has become very popular over the past few years, as it lets you install super-long video boards even in mid-tower or smaller enclosures.
The GameMax Pure Black G501x doesn't go about things that way, however. It's as if GameMax acknowledged that there was little chance of customers actually equipping six or seven / eight bays with storage drives, so it didn't bother creating so many.
Thus, there are “only” four 3.5-inch bays, and they're located on the bottom front of the chassis. Above it, where a removable drive cage would normally be, there is just a gap, with the three 5.25-inch external drive bays right above it.
It is that gap that allows enough room for video boards up to 400 mm in length (15.78 inches), as the photo/diagram in the gallery below will show you.
