(Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case) Do optical drives work with this case?

I'm planning on getting this case, but I would prefer to put the occasional disk in my machine. Maybe a dvd or something. Can I use an optical drive with this case?

I can't even believe the question needs asking tbh.

In my defense my friend just showed me his pc and he said his case didn't give him the option for an optical drive. I forget which case it was. He was drunk btw. So that's not a thing generally? I'm just being paranoid?

Cases not having dvd drive bays?

That is actually starting to become more popular tbh tho I think the majority of cases still have one or 2, it's usually pretty easy to tell by looking at the pics tho, which was more my point, you can clearly see 2 drive bays in one of the pics onsite, as well as the the text description pegotico posted from the product page. It's all good in the end tho, better to ask than not and have troubles later.

The r4 has recently been superseded by the r5 version btw and depending on exact deals atm they (r4/r5) could be pretty closely priced.
