Windows 7: 3.5" drive bay card reader with space for 2.5" drive (not hot-swap?)

3.5" drive bay card reader with space for 2.5" drive (not hot-swap?)

I want to be able to shoehorn another >1TB drive into my HTPC case. the problem is:

the 5.25" drive bay has the Blue-ray drive
the external 3.5" drive bay has the card reader
the main 3.5" internal bay has the current 1TB drive
the "secondary" 3.5" Internal drive bay holds the 2.5" SSD via adaptor

I could possibly tape the SSD to the bottom of the BDD, but I realized the card reader is a lot of wasted space.

is there any 3.5" card readers with room inside for a 2.5" drive? since it'll hold the boot drive I don't want one of those hot plug drives.

help? thanks.
