I just ordered 2 of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I should have ordered 2 of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... because i need the brackets. Oops.

Anyway, I'm finding that many of the brackets you can buy such as this http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... can hold 2 SSDs.

Mounting 2 regular HDD's that close together isn't a good idea. I know this from experience! Having never had any SSD's before I was wondering if heat is an issue at all? Is it okay to mount them that close together?

It should be OK to mount them that close together as SSDs put out very little heat. But I personally wouldn't do it unless I was pressed for space.

Some SSDs use more power as they use multiple controllers in RAID; for example the OCZ Apex and other low quality SSD.

But modern/normal SSDs would consume about 0,2W idle? That would mean you can put them against eachother and basically forget about heat altogether. As comparison a 7200rpm 3,5" drive uses about 6-8W to idle; up to 40 times more.
