Hi, i have a couple question about SSD and my build.
This is what i am planing to buy for my new PC.

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5" 128GB SATA III
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This is what i found and i am thinking about getting it.
Thermaltake iCage Drive Module

My question: Is there anything that let me put the SSD drive in the Icage? Like adapter or something like that?

And this is the link to my original post about building my new PC if anyone want to take a look at all the stuff i have so far and other questions.

I have the CoolerMaster version which is designed to fit four 3.5" drives in the space of three 5.25 inch drive bays:

The front grill is held in place with small screws. I used a jeweler's screwdriver to remove it so the fan and bay adapter are mounted and behind my case's mesh bay covers.

I did not install my ssd into the 4 in 3 adapter. Instead, I purchased a Silverstone bay adapter that fits 2 ssd's in one 5.25" bay:

I had a couple of unused bays. Their location did not interfere with airflow, ventilation, and cooling.
