Corsair 450D ATX Mid Tower Case

Hello,

I am wondering if it is possible to mount an 3.5 HDD drive in to the optical drive slot of the Corsair 450D ATX Mid Tower Case or would I have to do some sort of modding or buy an adapter? I am also wondering if cable management would be a problem in this situation or would it remain clean?

PS: I mean for hot swapping drives and also to keep the front looking hidden I.e. being able to keep the aluminum plate as if the case was vanilla

Thanks

i got the same case and used an adapter. if you want to hot swap try this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817998020

for more options Google, 3.5 to 5.25 hot swap.
