I spent some time looking at the photos og the Cooler Master H500 (the case I plan to get) and while it has 2 rear mounted SSD options (behind the motherboard) I was looking above the HDD rack at the bottom, and there seems to be some holes and whatnot. Could I mount my SSD on top of the rack? I'm getting the Team Delta 1tb RGB SSD and wanna show it off when I build my rig.

The drive cage in the case is the exact same drive cage found in the MasterBox 5 chassis:

If you want to show off the SSD, you could either be creative and align the SSD with the notches on the slits/holes atop the drive cage or you could get the SSD caddy



I actually can't find a link to the part because it's not sold as a spare case part by CoolerMaster. Instead I was sponsored by CoolerMaster and I asked for that part specifically. You could try Ebay. To add, that caddy houses two 2.5" drives. Like I mentioned earlier, you can try and work with the holes atop the HDD cage or rather look at a case that allows you to show off the SSD's RGB. You could look at SSD's mounted to the motherboard wall that face the viewable end of the side panel in a case...?

Thanks. I might just have to use some double sided adhesive tape or something, maybe line up the notches. Can't seem to find that exact SSD caddy, and the only 2 I've found is a weird sliding one https://store.coolermaster.com/us/ssd-bracket which I don't like, and this vertical one http://www.coolermaster.com/case/case-accessories/ssd-tray/

You're welcome!

I told you, you wont find it. I had to get in touch with the reps in Taiwan and after a lengthy explanation of why I wanted it, they granted me access to it. Hence why I said Ebay or being creative.
