alright, here it is. i haven't heard back from that guy......
it's an adapter for a SSD to a 5.25" bay. this way i don't have to have ANY additional expansion bays inside the case. i have the Corsair 550D and both of those expansion bays fully come out. now i have nothing between the fans and my gear.
i made this to be able to hold 2 SSD's. it's also set up for a toolless case design.
super simple to make, bend some tabs up, drill a few holes, done.
there is also another way.....take a busted ROM gut it out. and you should be able to install 4 SSD's (2 top, 2 bottom).
the reason why i think it's cool is becasue it frees up space or makes it easier to cool the case with fans. i also think it's a dud because there is already adapters for 2.5" and 3.5" HD's to fit in the 5.25" drive bay, but no one uses them. at least in all the pics of peoples rigs.
there you go. you see it out side the case, installed, cover installed over it, and how my case really opens up with it. i couldn't seem to find an adapter i liked or at least had 1 positive review. i am trying to get a busted ROM so i can actually see how it would work with gutting it and installing 4 SSD's. i can't understand why everyone doesn't up their HD's in their 5.25" bays anyway. i would think that would be the norm. i would also expect case manufacturers would give a few adapters when you buy the case or redesign them with those adapters in mind.
if you like it....enjoy.
