Ok, so I've been thinking of removing both the SSD and HDD drive cages in my 350D for better airflow and aesthetics. Having 2 Corsair AF-140mm LED Fans unobstructed at the front bathing my case in a red ambiance is giving me a semi….

I've seen a previous 350D build with 1xSSD mounted at the back where the cable management take place, but I can see no mounting holes for this. How was this achieved? Is it simply a case of finding strong double sided sticky tape and whacking it in there? I know they are much more robust than HDDs due to not having moving parts, but would it hold ok in the longterm?

And finally, if the above IS POSSIBLE - could you theoretically mount even more 2.5" drives at the back? As I'm planning on having the SSD as the OS/Boot drive, a 2nd 500GB SSD (or 1TB 2.5" HDD) for Games/Storage and possibly a 3rd 2.5" HDD drive for backing everything up?

Thanks for your help!

Two sided foam tape.

SSD's and HDD's do generate some heat and there is zero air flow on that side. I don't know if that would cause an overheating issue but I'd find out before sticking them back there.
