              <div class="moz-cite-prefix">So you want mains (110v-120v)
                standard 3 prong electrical outlets in a 5.25" drive
                bay?<br>
                <br>
                Possible, but might introduce some noise, it also might
                not.<br>
                There is risk involved, but mostly to your computer
                equipment. If there is every a short to your case your
                computer is toast and most likely every thing in it and
                attached to it.<br>
                <br>
                Since you have limited electrical knowledge I would
                recommend this route:<br>
                <br>
                Buy a cord like this one:
                <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;
                  charset=ISO-8859-1">
                <a moz-do-not-send="true"

                <br>
                <br>
                Get a 5.25" bay and front panel, cut out the shape
                needed, glue the cord in flush with a glue of your
                choice.<br>
                <br>
                Run the cord out the back of your PC somehow.  You might
                have a cutout large enough to pass it through.<br>
                <br>
                Install a rubber grommet or other protector around the
                cord where it exits the case (Sharp edges, you don't
                want that cutting into the extension cord.

                <br>
                Alternately:<br>
                If you don't need much power, and want it to only run
                while the PC is turned on you could wire in one of these
                to your 12v Rails:<br>
