Just a quick update...
I decided to get another SSD and use one for Windows and one for OS X. Initially the idea was to RAID0 them and have 300 and 200 but it's too much hassle and didn't warrant the effort. So I decided to finally come up with a mounting solution for both SSDs.
I nabbed another Vertex 4 256GB new for £136, a dual 2.5" to 3.5" adapter and a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter. My idea was to put them together and mount them above the Blu-Ray drive, but this needed an extra power socket so it needed modifying.
So here is pictures of how it went.
Here's the two SSDs and the adapters
This is the position I want it mounting to make plugging in cables easier
This is my modified power cable before and after braiding
Here are the plugs in there rough positions
I then made a single bracket that will mount the SSDs to the Blu-Ray drive
Here it is fitted
And here is the finished cable management
It's much better having a drive for each system, it's easier for updates and less risky of loosing the entire system at once. Also the internals look much tidier now the drives are mounted instead of them hanging. Hope you guys like!

I forgot to add, but as you can probably see i also dyed the fluid to royal blue from the original raspberry purple. I love blue and i think it suits the build wonderfully. I have yet to come up with a better case lighting solution as i don't want it stupidly bright but i want it even, but the size of the case doesn't allow for much lol.
