I have a probably stupid question, but I'm stuck.
I just got a Fractal Design R5 case. Each slot in the HDD cage comes with a nice slide-in, slide-out bracket. Worked great with my 2.5" SSD - the screw holes on the bottom of the drive line up perfectly with the inner holes on the bracket.
But I cannot figure out how to mount a 3.5" HDD, using either the side or bottom holes. The side of the bracket has folded-over edges which means none of the mounting screws that came with the case are long enough. And while the bottom flushes with the drive, all the openings for screws are way too big for the screw heads.
What am I missing? Do I need another part to mount a standard 3.5" HDD?
