I won't be drilling holes to mount the SSD. The holes on the 5.25 drive is what I plan to use if they actually fit. I'll upload a picture if I need to show you what I'm talking about.

Most serious builders will take the time for a more professional installation.

This.

If you're going to do something, do it right the first time. It takes all of 5 minutes tops to drill the holes, and doesn't ruin the case in any way shape or form.

And it isn't the least bit hard.

What about modders who use velcro and tape? They probably look like satanists to you.
P.S. Each to his own. Any idea is only as "serious" as you consider it to be. It's not like you gonna play rugby with your rig or use it as a skateboard.

Anyway, I measured it and all four of them won't like up, so two of them will be left hanging. May seem stupid to put it there, but it was the first thing that came to mind.

You would use the screws from the inside to screw on the top two.

QFT - zip ties are a half arsed solution. It doesn't take much more effort/time to do it properly and the finished product looks SO much better!
