enter image description hereI've got an HP Envy h8-1414 with two hard drives already installed in it. I have a third drive I need to use to store backups on and I can't find any places where I can jam another harddrive in although the motherboard does appear to support more hard drives.

The only place I can think of is the empty DVD bay just below it. I'd like to put one of those removable bays in there, but I'm having a hard time finding a good cooled one online, are towers so unpopular now that they have stopped making them?

Your 'problem' is probably that its a crappy matx case (and they're generally that small(You actually have a drive bay, some don't!) and they assume you don't need all those drives. That and Andrew is likely to get mad at you ;p. – Journeyman Geek Jan 31 '13 at 8:00
I am that Andrew... ;) – leeand00 Jan 31 '13 at 19:32
I wonder if the drive would fit in that bay under the 2 5 1/4 inch bays I see. – Journeyman Geek Feb 1 '13 at 8:28
