Good case, but lacks a 2.5" drive bay. Do you have an adapter?

SSDs are 2.5", not the normal 3.5". You should get a case that can hold the smaller sized drive. There are adapters that will let you mount a 2.5" drive in a 3.5" bay if you have a case that doesn't support them.

Edit: Some SSDs have a heat sink that allows you to mount it in a 3.5" bay as well.
