Default Triple (120mm) Threat - Antec 900

I wanted to get some feedback on the feasibility of this project, since I have never done any case mods before:

I was thinking of buying a 3rd HD bay from Antec and sticking it into my 900 case so I would have 3 120mm fans as intake fans, blowing some fresh cool air over my hardware.

That's the easy part.

The problem is that I only have 9 5.25" bays, and each HD bay is 3 bays high, leaving me no room for a DVD drive. Do any of you know if it would be possible to somehow mod the case so I could still have a DVD drive anywhere?

Every mod I have found is the run-of-the-mill "I took a dremel and made holes for cable mgmt" mod, which I will do but is not hard to perform when you measure twice and cut once. I have not found anything else for this case.

Ideas are very, very welcome.
