Anyone have any suggestions on mounting 3.5" drives in the 5.25" bays without buying any custom made adaptors? The case in question is a Corsair Graphite 780T. I'm basically wanting to eliminate the bottom 3.5" cages entirely but wanting to do it on the cheap (ie, free) if possible.
If you want to go free, use plexi and double sided tape/velcro. Cut the plexi to fit the the 5.25 bay floor. The double sided tape/velcro you put on the drive and press the drive on the plexi. Then slide the whole thing in the 5.25 bay.

Would be easier/simpler if you just bought the adapters needed and save yourself the headaches of trying to make one to fit.
