Intel SSD in a PC Tags: Flash Media SSD Intel Storage Last response: February 8, 2009 11:43 AM in Storage Share leandrodafontoura February 8, 2009 2:29:44 AM I recently bought the Intel SSD X-25M and I would like to know: How do I fit the drive into a 3.5 case? Wich adaptors should I use? I believe some will be better than others (in both noise reductions and heat disssipation) By the way, is there an adaptor that could allow me to install the drive in a 5.25 lot? I have the Zalman adpators that allow me to put 3.5 HDs in the space, so I believe I will use them if necessary. thanks in advance!

I alredy have the Zalman HD cooling, wich allows me to fit a 3.5 drive in a 5.25 bay. I was wondering if there was an adaptor wich would allow me to directly put a 2.5 drive in a 5.25 bay. I think Im gonna go with the Icy Dock. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Intel SSD in a PC> Related ressources: ForumFS PC - Intel i5 2500k 3.3Ghz, 16gig ram, 120gig SSD , 1.5TB sata3 HD, ForumFS: Intel 180GB 520 SSD , Lian Li PC -70 case, Xeon Server ForumIntel Smart Response Technology ( SSD Caching).
