Yeah I fitted 3x 2.5" drives.
Two drive inside-front of chasis, stacked using the included mounting. Can add one more if I need.
One thick drive at the ODD bracket.

Ah unfortunately 2.5" HDD is pricey or slow in performance.

That's true.
I don't need the speed for the stuff I'm putting in the HDD.
You can try shucking external HDD if you want cheaper 2.5" drives.
Ncase also got this HDD cage that can fit 2x 3.5" but use up the one of the space for side intake fan.
Can also fit 3.5" below the GPU but block GPU air flow.

Yeah, I had problem to fit 2 hdd, so end up have to source for bigger hdd space.

Depends on your setup.

If you're using a blower GPU or integrated graphics, the older Ncase designs (before v6 IIRC) had mount points under the GPU for a single 3.5" HDD. New ones only have mount points for fans there now.

There's also a bracket that allows for 2 3.5" drives to be mounted in place of one of the side 120mm fan slots.

Personally, if you want to use this case as a file server with 3.5" drives, I'd not bother with using it for high-end gaming too. High TDP doesn't play well with a cramped case when the 3.5" drives block off most of the airflow.

Currently planning to ditch my gc and make it a mobile pc which I could bring between home and work as both sides had setup with respective lcd and keyboard and mouse.
