I have no idea how to mount the ssd... it doesn't have a larger case to mount it in and the tower doesn't have a spot for ssds

Any way you like. I like to mount mine with a spare screw behind the drive cage or motherboard tray. You can also just kinda put it in the HDD bay too. Whatever you fancy.

Double sided tape or velcro works good with SSDs too.

Don't forget to follow this guide for SSDs.
SSD Tweak Guide

Don't worry about the tweak utility but disable these two services as well.

Installed my gpu drivers and uninstalled some bloat ware that came with the motherboard drivers. When I restarted the pc it is at the blue "shutting down" screen with the circle rotating for a good 5 minutes is that normal? Everything is installed on the ssd at this point

If it was me, I'd just hit the reset button.

For future reference, never use the BS on the CDs that come with hardware. Go straight to the website and download only what you need. In this case, it should only have been USB3 and SATA3 drivers if Windows 7, nothing if Windows 8 (for motherboard).

There are ways around it with different drivers, but it all depends on the version of the device. They are cheap, so I suggest going out and buying a new one.
