    I just ended up printing some. The reviews of the trays were that they were pretty crappy.

    I was recently look at these deals and I am quite curious, what are your plans for the PSU's considering they are quite hard to come by what are you going to do if/when one fails?

    The chassis comes with 3 PSU and I believe it will beep if not all 3 are plugged in. You could run with 2 or even 1 and just keep the other ones as spare.

    It comes with 3, 2+1 spare. It will beep at initial boot if any of the 3 are missing but it will run fine. Just press the alarm button and it silences it. Since my server is always running I would have to push the button once or twice every 6 months so not really that concerned. If all 3 fail ill just buy another case if I cant source the psus.

    Hey everyone, I just purchased the Chenbro NR40700 this week. Of course no drive trays. But I wanted to share with you guys a quick but temporary fix.

    I used 3m 60 mega pack at 2inX2in foam tape. I cut them to 2MM, so I was able to get two pieces from one square. I then stuck them together for 2 pieces on each side (four 2mm pieces with two stuck together turning them into two pieces, see linked photo) It slide into the hard drive slot perfectly.

    nice and snug!
