i just tried to mount 2 2,5" SSDs in the front, behind the front cover ... it seems that they are a little to high? am i right or should it work? do i need the optical drive bay when i want to mount 2 2,5" SSD in the front behind the cover? (i don't mean inside)
I removed the optical bay, used the included bracket to stack 2x 2.5 SSDs and then clipped into the front of the case using the bottom of one of the SSDs screw holes. Fits fine and leaves enough space between drives to get the power connectors in.
