I'm wondering if the 2.5" bottom mount SSD bay in the Antec Three Hundred (300) can hold a regular 2.5" HDD or just a SSD? Would there be any overheating issues putting a normal HDD there? Is anyone running that set up? If so, any issues?

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

Try, you can find the answer in that way.

Where is that mount anyway? I fail to locate it in my Antec Three Hundred.

It's on the bottom of the case below the hard drive bays. Some of the 300 cases don't have it, I think Antec added it later because SSDs became so popular.

I did end up putting a regular 2.5" drive in there (hybrid SSD) and it works fine. You've got to screw it in REALLY tight though because when the HD starts to spin, it will make a rattle noise if there is ANY type of give.
