I was thinking the same thing, but I was looking at moving the new MB, and other parts into the 2010 chassis as it already has the slot. I am in the process of getting a used 2010 and 2011 to try it. I will get back to you guys if it works! I am just wondering if there is a place on the newer MB to connect a optical drive, such as to the second HD connector that is there.
Since there is room for a second HD and it looks like they only changed the bracket from the 2010 model, could a the parts from this 2011 be put into a 2010 chassis with an optical drive? Is there a place for an optical drive to connect to?
