Can you mount a hard drive at any angle without afecting per

I have never realy questioned the idia of mounting a hard drive in a verticle posion because all case mountings are horozontal
So i have either mounted my hard drive up side down up under the power suppy or in its hard drive case mountings
So does it efect the operation if it is not fat or horizontal :idea:
I am building a new computer and my ideas for placement of some of my components started to get a bit weird and then the question hit me and i never realy thought about before so im asking the question

  3. They are generally fine at any orthogonal (90 degree) angle. I wouldn't recommend them at any other angle without at least mounting them firmly.
