Regarding a recently purchased CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR Gaming PC Desktop GXiVR8080A2

I assumed that since this was a full sized case there would be room for more drives. The existing drives are mounted in a tiny box on the bottom near the power supply.   https://photos.app.goo.gl/x6pxWCPWeEbrRPJR6   There is no room for more drives in this area. 

The inside of the case has lots of room and the back panel has lots of screw holes for mounting brackets.

I talked with support on chat, showed them the pics and they concluded that the case only supported 2 drives. This seems ridiculous. 

Is there a standard mounting bracket I can buy that will fit this? I want to install both SATA SSDs and regular HDDs.

Any advice?

They would screw into the screw holes on the right of the case in the second pic. Either vertically for 3.5 drives or horizontally for 2.5 drives. Doesn’t need a bracket, just line up the screws
