I just tried it with a regular 5.25" swappable tray, it won't fit in any
way, shape or form without removing the internal slot load dvd-rom. Which I
might do (as a last resort), as I have an external DL DVD+-R/W.

are you talking about a hotswap tray? Because for those, you can buy
5.25" devices, but I think it wqould be close to impossible to make it
at home. If there is no space availablecut a bay.
