Standard desktop drives and drive bays use a 3.5" form factor, so what you're looking for is a "2.5 inch to 3.5 inch mounting bracket". | Report abuse JohnnyLucky August 2, 2011 4:55:30 PM ^5 +1 what clarkjd and sminlal said. Some of the "retail" versions come with a bay adapter, SATA cable, and maybe a cd-rom disc with a few goodies. You have to check the specifications to make sure. My ssd did not come with anything so I bought the Silverstone bay adapter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Works for me. It came with a plastic bag containing lots of screws in two different sizes. TIP - Attaching a solid state drive to a drive bay or a bay adapter is a lot easier if you use a magnetic screwdriver. | Report abuse Leaps-from-Shadows August 2, 2011 4:56:08 PM Weird -- my HAF 912 case came with an SSD bay, but your HAF 922 doesn't. Just buy the cheaper of the two brackets sminlal linked. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>What kind of bay adapter do I need to buy for a SSD?> Related ressources: ForumSimple SSD Bay Problem ForumI need 2x15 pin SATAs.
