The Disk Drive Bays
The R-2 Toast has two 3.5” internal bays and only one 5.25” external bay. The hard disk drives are installed vertically in the upper front side of the case. There are no screwless mechanisms, so you need to attach each hard drive to the hard drive cage using four regular screws, and the hard drive cage is attached to the case using two screws. In Figures 13 and 14, you can see these bays empty and populated, respectively.
The most unique feature of the Toast is its 5.25&rdquo
; bay. It is located on the front of the case, between the plastic and the metal front panels, and the optical drive must be installed in the vertical. Because of that, the tray of the optical drive opens upwards, coming out like a toast in a toaster, and hence the name of this case. In Figures 15 and 16, you can see this bay empty and with a DVD burner installed.
We made a short movie to show you how the optical drive opens after the computer is built, watch it below.
