I am building my first computer as I type this and I think I made a rookie mistake. I was assuming the 900 would have mounting brackets for all types of hard drives, including SSD's. I'm starting to think I was wrong. Looks like I needed to buy an SSD mounting bracket to put into the 3.5" bays... is this correct? If so, would this mounting bracket work??

I also came across a thread on the toms hardware forums, and was a bit skeptical about their recomendations of using double sided tape or velcro to secure the SSD instead of a mounting bracket. Considering heat issues in the case (not nessesarily with the SSD itself of course). Any experienced builders have some feedback, on if the mounting bracket is worth it, or would the velcro work?

Some SSD makers like Samsung have SSD adapter that comes with it when you buy it.
