Ran out of sata ports for cd opticle drive! Any solutions? asus p8z77 I deluxe

I am currently using an Asus p8z77-I deluxe mini Itx mobo for my build. It's a dual boot hackintosh so I have two ssd's and two hdds connected to all my sata ports.

I would like to install a cd drive into my front bay but is it possible?

Maybe connect to a mobo usb 2.0 header?

Please let me know, any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

  1. Because your MB doesn't have the pci slot, and you use all the SATA ports, so you need buy one IDE/SATA to USB2.0 or USB3.0 adapter, like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2970S38813 connect to the regular DVD drive and use the DVD drive as external dvd drive.
