    the answer really is - anywhere. You can hide it in the deepest darkest place of the case if you like. They don't needto be cooled and can be placed at any angle...

    So there is no need for those 2.5 adapters? I am going to be moving in Cyprus in the summer and i need to make sure that its relatively decently cooled as the climate there is kinda hot.

    Is that the Antec in the picture btw? It doesnt seem like it. Anyone with expeirence of adapters in the 900 case?

    Cheers

    I use a UN designs X bracket, though if you don't want to pay out then velcro seems popular.

    The SSD is in an Antec 300 - fortunately two of the screw holes on teh SSD matched a couple of holes on the HDD cage - simply screwed two in and game over - you don't need to worry about heat for for these things.

    I've got a antec 900 and a SSD. I mounted it in the cage with longer screws just, because I had them from another case, otherwise I would of just attached it onto the side or somewhere else with cable ties. SSDs are so light the longer screws can hold it.

    And yea heat isn't a problem.

    just Velcro it to the bottom of the case or anywhere there's room. Job Done. It's Tidy, Tool-less, easy to remove and costs almost nothing.
