"Excellent number of disk drive bays (one 5.25, four 3.5, and two 2.5)"

Actually one 3.5" is optionally 2.5". So 4*3.5"+1*2.5" OR 3*3.5"+2*2.5". Just build mine

Thanks for good site

I just build mine, too.

It can only take a power supply with length up to 140mm (5.5"). The back of the hot-swap hard drive bay almost touches the power supply... Actually most of power supplies in stores won't fit in the GD06. Silverstone should make this more clear in the spec and user's manual.

Otherwise, it is a decent case with a lot of storage space (mine has 4*3.5" + 1*2.5" + optical drive).

That's the size defined by the ATX standard, so that shouldn't be a problem, right...?

I believe 5.5" length is within ATX form factor. However, I am surprised that most of the power supplies in the market is 6" or longer.
