Stripped it back and it "almost" fits the internal bay adapter. The drive is a little bit too small I could not find the correct size bolts :roll: 3M to large, 2M to small. But later thought it only needs to hold the drive not actually screw into it. Got a little bit creative in that respect.

Just ordered a internal USB splitter and adapter cable so I can plug a USB drive into the motherboard all internally.. So hopefully in a few days time I can actually screw my PC back together!
