Anybody know a brand / model of an SSD bracket that works well for the Aurora case?

Just upgraded my system to Samsung 840 250GB SSD and the brackets I've tried [Nippon both alum and reg] don't work because they either don't have enough holes for the Alienware drive trays, or they hold the SSD about 1" inside the case, so the pre-wired power cables don't reach the SSD.

These don't work:

I'm going to upgrade my Area 51 to SSD as well, so an SSD bracket that holds the SSD flush with the hard drives and has all the holes to fit the Alienware tray - and other tool-less trays in other cases - sure would be a big help to mount these smoking SSDs.

Thanks,
wg

Yes, I found those. Thanks. Video on newegg very helpful too. I got the S2 model for more airflow.

The IcyDock [links above] is by far the best solution that I've seen. I've used it on 3 systems so far with great results.
If your case does not have a direct mount point for a 2.5" drive, then the IcyDock is the way to go.
