First build here, I got a 2.5in SATAIII SSD. The thing is, my case does not have pre made bays for SSD, and I know I need a mounting bracket from a 3.5in HDD bay to mount the 2.5in SSD on. Thing is, there are no places around that sell this bracket, and I really want to finish my build.

I already have a WD HDD Mechanical Drive mounted. And I want to SSD to have the Operating system on there. Sooo. What can I do?? Would it be alright for me to just lay the SSD on top of the HDD for now until a bracket comes? or is that plausible for short circuiting something? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah, you can put the ssd on the bottom of your case or on top of the hard drive - neither conduct electricity, nor does the outside of the SSD, so you're fine.
