Use Optical Drive Sata Port for SSD Hard Disk on DL360e G8?

I like to install Freenas on an sata ssd and use all 8 bays for storage. I know I can install Freenas to a usb as well, but I prefer to use an SSD.

Can you tell me how can I use the Optical SATA connection to connect a SATA SSD hard disk? I can fit the SSD fine, but I'm not sure what kind of cable I should use to connect it. Please suggest any soltion for this, as always I'm open to "hacks". :)

Thanks up front!
