Hello everybody! I've purchased my masterbox5 White and I want to know if it is possible in any way o install an optical drive. Maybe with a different front panel it would be possible. 

Sorry for my bad english, many thanks

Has anyone found a solution to this problem? It seems that european parts website has the master box 5 front panel with the adaptor for the 5.25 in. mounts and not available in north america.  I am not looking to add an optical drive but a switch box for hard drives. It would also be a shame for me to have cut up a relatively  new case.

Hi Michael,
Do you have the masterbox pro 5?  The CD/DVD5player should just slide into the 5 inch bays. Now if you have a slimline CD/DVD player you should be able to purchase a generic front panel from Newegg or any computer part supplier.  I have purchased such devices for past builds along with (if needed) a cage to hold a DVD drive or Fan controller.
What type of CD/DVD player do you have and of course what case exactly...
Good Luck

If you only need to install HDD switch box, you can add the optical drive cage.

Those are not listed on the stores (Yet), but I suggest to drop them an email to inquire about it. They can probably get them from a RMA case if needed.

 

As for permanent ODD install, you need to get to get this mesh panel too:
