Installing The SSD
Choosing the Right SSD
Any SSD with at least 256 GB of capacity should be fine. Even a roomy hard drive is suitable if you're willing to tolerate the less responsive storage performance. We have a bunch of Samsung's 840 Pros in the lab, so that's what we used in this build. It was a nice little bonus that the drive comes with a data migration tool, allowing me to clone the contents of an old HTPC quickly.
As a side note, it doesn't matter how thick your SSD is in Lian Li's PC-Q30. Any 2.5” device will fit.
