Default computer accessories

I have four empty 5.25" (cd-Rom sized) slots on my computer that I can do something with, but I don't know what.. I know they make card readers for digital cameras and such. but what else do they have that'* cool to put on my computer? I haven't really seen anything except the card readers.. I also have an empty floppy drive space where something could be put.. hmm.

Don't they also have things that output CPU information and read out on an LCD screen? Don't know, just thought I had seen something like that in the past.

Thermaltake Hardcano 12



Thermaltake Hardcano 13 (card reader, fan controler, HDD cooler)



Creativity is also good. You'd be surprised what you can do with a 5.25 slot cover and a dremel (think neon inside the case shining through

Mostly because I'm staying at someone'* house right now and brought my computer along, but forgot my external speakers and I get tired of wearing headphones all the time. I wonder how their sound quality would be.. hmmm. They have a 4" sub.
