Default Carbide Air 540 and SSD

Hey, I tried to doing a search but didn't find what I was looking for.

I just put together my build for Christmas. I love the case, my glowing cube is so pretty. However, I'm not a big fan of the SSD cages in the back and want to put it in the hotswap bay up front. I think it would get better cooling that way too. (Not that temps in the back are bad) Has anybody found a good way to put a 2.5" SSD in the hotswap spot? Maybe a better tray of some sort?

Maybe I'm just vain, but I want to show off my Samsung 850 Pro SSD

You can use Velcro to stick the SSD anywhere in the front if you want to display the SSD or use the tray below which should have holes for mounting an SSD/2.5" drive if you want to install it there. You will need to remove a pin on the tray to install the SSD.

Lots of mods can be done to the 540 to tailor it the way you like.
Theres several builds in the Build section that will give you several ideas...

No modification required, the drive sleds in the primary chamber support 2.5" drives natively. :)
