Assuming this hard drive will be too small for the bays in this case, what is everything I will need to make it fit? I want to buy an Asus P6T delux motherboard too.

I just stick it in there without worrying about mounting. I don't ever move my case really. And even if I did, ssd's are pretty sturdy. They shouldn't really be affected too much by a little bit of moving around. But that's just me. Other people might have reasons to mount it that I've overlooked.

I had my ssd hanging in my case for couple of months like that without a problem. But it looks much better with the hd cage and the wiring in cleaner looking.

Thanks for the replies. I dont move my case much but I'm thinking if I rest the SSD on the bottom of the case it may affect the temperatures? Should it be suspended or open to air on all six sides? Do they even get really hot while gaming?

What else do I need to purchase from Newegg? I read somewhere that the SSD does not include cables? If anyone can confirm this.. I dont know if I'll need to buy a few additional things for a new build.

If you want something even cheaper, you can always go with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's what I've been using in my rig, and seems to be holding up pretty well. It doesn't block airflow, either...
If it doesn't come with cables, You'll probably need a SATA Data cable for it... you should have the power connector already.

That's the SATA cable that I've always bought for my rig, and it should work with an SSD as far as I know. It's black, too, so you won't have all of those bright red cables running everywhere.

You dont need cooling for them. They dont get hot.

Usually you get sata cables with your motherboard and u can use those. If you dont have any you can buy them cheap at newegg.
