yes, put it in your 5.25 bays with a "3.5 to 5.25 adapter" for a few bucks amazon .ca (StarTech.com 3.5 Inch Universal Hard Drive Mounting Bracket Adapter for 5.25 Inch Bay (BRACKET) but they are not colored black; spray paint them or plastidip?)

Nice PC btw and also user name for youtube. You should put all descriptions in the About section of the Youtube video to help people build a nice pc like that.

Sorry didn't watch the video, do you not have any spare HDD slots available? If you have full with SSD's just move an SSD to petty much anywhere (use some Velcro to mount or two side tape).

EDIT: Watched your video, so you'll only have room in the case for a single Drive rack? Sorry chain saw wailing away here next door I'm having coffee on my patio, if only a single Drive cage I'm assuming you have 1 or 2 SSD's? What about mounting one SSD right on top of the Drive Cage with Velcro, this'd SSD' a take up such little space they can be put anywhere your SATA power n data cables can reach.
