Dude.  Unless that case has some _huge_ side vents that system is going  
to be able to cook bacon on the top of it.  I see almost no airflow  
from the provided pictures.

My first inclination would be to contact the sellers.  It was their  
responsibility to sell you a working system and case - they say "Case  
is used but is in GOOD condition." right on the auction.  Good  
Condition means all the parts are there.

Failing that I'd suggest ordering a drive cage from here and make your

Failing that find and tear apart a hard drive mounting kit and screw it  
into the bottom of the case.
