Still, it's not much of a worry since SSD's aren't highly susceptible to damage from minor movement. I put the SSD in the bottom 5.25" bay, the optical drive in the top 5.25" bay, and then stuffed extra PSU leads under the optical bay which essentially ends up holding the SSD in place.
Mount two 2½" drives in one 3½" bay:

Would you consider a FirePro 2270 for the next build?flip-mode wrote:Sadly, the Firepro V3800 heatsink fan ended up being more noticeable that hoped (not bad, but it can actually be heard and I was hoping for something undetectable like the fan on the HD 2400), and so swapping the side panels so the panel without any vent closed off the active side of the case did indeed reduce the noticeability of the Firepro's fan. The case has excellent ventilation so I'm not worried about losing the side vent at all.
The system ends up being acoustically undetectable in the office, but in a very quiet room I'm pretty sure I'd have to end up doing something about that Firepro's fan.
