5.25 Drive Cage
Some cases will also have removable cages for 5.25" drives, such as CD-RW drives. Working with a 5.25" cage is usually the same as working with a 3.5" cage. Either the 5.25" drives will be attached to the cage with screws or sometimes rails will be attached to the drive and then the rails slide into place in the cage. If rails come with your case, just attach the rails to the drive and insert the drive. Be sure the rails arent upside down or backward.
This particular case doesnt use a 5.25" removable cage. And, it doesnt have removable rails which are attached to the sides of the drives. Rather, for each drive bay, it has levers that pull out. Then the drive is placed into its bay and pushed into place, and the levers are closed to engage the drive and hold it in place (Figure 51). This design doesnt even require a screwdriver.
