The Disk Drive Bays
The Lian Li PC-8FI comes with three 5.25” external bays. The top two bays come with screwless installation mechanisms, but you will have to use regular screws (the case comes with a set of silver thumbscrews) on the bottom 5.25” bay. The bottom 5.25” bay comes also with an adapter for you to install an external 3.5” device, such as a floppy disk drive, memory card reader, or fan controller.
There are six 3.5” internal bays, and to install hard drives you need to attach four thumbscrews and four rubber rings to each drive. Then, all you need to do is to slide the hard drive in the bay you want to use, but before you need to unlock the latch that holds all hard drives in place, locking it back after you are do installing the hard drives. The hard drive cage is removable, what may help you if you have several hard drives to install.
The PC-8FI comes with one 3.5”-to-2.5” adapter, allowing you to install one laptop hard drive or one SSD unit.
