I have a couple of 2.5" SSD and would like to use with my 3.5" bays. Does anyone know where I can find a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter (not cables, but a case to fit the 2.5 drives into 3.5 bays).

Sure does, thanks. Any idea if there's a plastic version? If not I will walk to PB Tech and get these.

I've only ever seen steel mounting adapters.

Intel and Kingston with some SSD packaging ship a 'plate' which the SSD can be screwed onto and this plate mounts like a 3.5" HDD.

Scythe Twin Mounter 2.5 Rev.C, 2.5 to 3.5inch Adapter

Scythe's Twin Mounter 2.5 allows installation of up to two 2.5" SSD/HDD units in one 3.5" bay which is a great way to save space in a traditional PC case.

By 'walk' he could mean taking a stroll on a Segway.  :)
