OCZ SSD Agility 3 Optibay?

Can anyone recommend me a nice optibay on amazon.co.uk which will fit? I am using a MID 2012 MBP (non Retina).

Thanks guys, if you know any other stores make sure they are from the UK!

can't wait to get an SSD in my MBP.

This should suffice.

Also I bet with the 2012 cMBP the Optibay SATA connection will be SATAIII since it's Ivy Bridge. (2011 was SATAII for the optibay and SATAIII for the main port).

A word of advice...put the SSD in the main slot and install OS X on that then move the HDD to the optibay and use it a storage for large media, etc.

Quick question: How do I install Mountain Lion? I purchased it off of app store and don't have a USB drive for it.

It's actually fairly simple, with plenty of guides online.

Here's one for a USB stick (make sure it's at least 8GB):
