2.5" to 3.5" drive bay adapters.

How did someone come to design one where the holes don't line up !

I guess that what happens when you buy ones made in your own country and don't buy from China where they are 1/3 the price, but take 3 months to arrive by post, and are a little flimsy..

But at least their bloody holes are in the right place !

    My cheap orange ones are just fine.

    Did you try flipping the drive the other way btw ;)

    @electrineer I wanted the metal ones to help with heat transfer, as its quite hot here, I thought perhaps the plastic ones would more insulate.

    @Nanos if you think about nas system usually fits multiple hard drives in a small case. And it runs 24/7 without problems. You don’t need fan for hard drives.
    Metal to metal without thermal pad also does nothing for cooling

    You can just tape it to the case especially if it's an ssd

    Thanks for the idea of thermal pads, hadn't thought of that !

    My PC's are in a more difficult environment than normal, think small bunker.. as such it can get quite hot here and electronics need extra forced cooling to keep them from overheating.

    I notice one of the SSD's I got doesn't come with a temperature sensor. :-(

    So I just have to hope its getting enough cooling. (Something to bare in mind the next time I want to buy one..)
