Really, if nobody is going to be looking in the case and you dont care, duct tape would do the trick. It all depends what you want to put into this project.
Thanks for the response, I stuck the SSD under the DVD drive which actually keeps it fairly snug (due to cable lengh). I will be using this for Blue Iris as I'm moving it off of my ESXi server.
