No, they are not. It's about 300 dollars for the two modules.

Also, the fan on this case is louder than my vacuum cleaner.

Considering that those modules are not included, without them is the case still functional and is there some form of cover for where the HDD trays would normally be?

Yes, it comes with a 4 drive cart (without a HS module) that will hold your hard drives. It also comes with one 5.25 to 3.5 drive bay adapter. The cart easily installs and removes from the case, as well as the individual drives from within the cart while leaving the cart in the case.

The cart will fit in either the upper or lower bay slots. The slots will not otherwise hold a drive without a cart. Therefore, the case (out of the box) is limited to 4x hard drives, or 5x if you include the 5.25 adapter.

In order to hold 8x drives, you will need the hotswap module, or buy a second case just for the drive cart. This is where I am right now, I want more drives in the case yet have no way of doing so unless I special order the HS module or another case. I don't need HS, and frankly don't trust it to do it's job. I just need another 4 drive cart.

I replaced that rear 120x38 delta fan with a 120x25mm fan, and then added a fan controller to slow even that down. The case is very quiet now, even with 2x90mm zalman intakes.

Overall, I am very pleased with this case, I just wish I could buy a regular cart for it, or the HS module at a reasonable price. I use the system primarily for prepping, testing, scanning and fixing hard drives. I can add in a hard drive, plug it in and boot up in less than 30 seconds. No other case I have worked with can so easily add or remove a hard drive.

Lithogeek: Thanks for the great info! - I'm looking around for a case with "many" hot-swap bays to build a decent NAS box.

I just seem to keep filling up drives... So I thought if I get an "inexpensive" case with as many hot-swap bays as I could find (without an insane price!) and maybe just a basic system board and ideally RAID, and then just put my first drive in and add drives as needed, switching to RAID 5 as soon as I can afford to.(and have enough drives, of course)

Is there some reason in particular you don't trust the hot-swap..? Do you have any other suggestions for me..? (or if anyone else has any suggestions of course ...) It seems like even a basic NAS with at least 4 bays is $400 or (much) more... so I'm better off building something if I can get a case with 8 (or more..?) hot swap bays for a reasonably price.

-- Though I just noticed that Intel, who used to have a 4 bay NAS in the same ~$450 range as the other cheapest ones, seems to now have a different model (SS4200-E) for $270 - I'll definitely have to have a closer look at this - even though it's not hot-swap, it may be worth it.
