What case are you getting? It's possible there's a variant that has a drive bay, or you could pick something similar that has one.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You'll need to run power and data to the internal drive outside of the case, generally PSU cables aren't long enough to accomplish this.

 

You're better off buying an external USB DVD/BluRay drive. It wouldn't look as dodgy.

 

This is - if you're REALLY set on this case.

 

Otherwise, buy one that has an internal drive bay...

So you have no 5.25" anything Im guessing because I know they make a SATA power and E SATA capable 5.25 media reader for this exact scenario.  But that wont help in your case lol.

What about a 3.5" slot (no I haven't looked at your case)

Or this for power (4 pin molex to SATA cable required):

And this for connecting the data line:

(unless you have an e-sata port already)

*price shopping should yield you better prices as well*

 

However at what point have we hit external Blu Ray player costs?
