Sata2 or sata3? Sata2 there are internal hot swap bays you can mount in an open 5.25 bay slot, if it's a sata3 I haven't found a hot swap bay for sata3 , guess they are too new yet. My case has 2 mounts for SSD's which is basically rubber grommets through holes to insulate them from the case and keeps it open to air flow on all sides. If your buying a sata3 make sure you get a sata 3 cable rated at 6g , your computer will recognize the SSD with a sata2 cable (just in case you can't find a sata3 cable) just won't be as fast. If your going to raid your SSD do it from the start wiping the data I hear isn't a very good option which will happen if you have any data on the SSD when setting up for raid. hope this helps some, still new to building comps myself, good luck !!
