Q. visitor asked, Hi what do I need to have to put this in a regular sized tower system

Spencer J.
hello, welcome to Newegg!
Hi what do I need to have to put this in a regular sized tower system
Spencer J.
Can I help you with a hard drive?
it wil lconnect to the standard SATA ports, you would need a 2.5" Bay to hold it
ok if it is a regular sized port do I need a case to put it into
Spencer J.
Well, towers generally have standard 3.5" Bays, some do have a few 2.5" bays. if you only have 3.5 you can get a caddy adapter, so the 2.5 fits in a 3.5
ok like this one
BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5" HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Spencer J.
Yep
or would this one be better/
Rosewill RDRD-11003 2.5" SSD / HDD Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay with 60 mm Fan
or is the fan just another thing to go out?? lol
Spencer J.
Either will work fine. Fan is not actually needed.. especially for SSD
ok and the cord to connect them?
Spencer J.
Cord would generally come with the system, if you do not have one it uses this type
I am adding a bigger SSD I have a 120 GB one already but I play Diablo 3 and starcraft so that drive is full lol
Spencer J.
Ah, for a replacement it will use the same cable as the previous drive
no to go along with the 120 I will keep my OS on the smaller drive and the games and movies on the bigger one
Spencer J.
Ah ok. you would need a cable then :-p
ok thank you for the help. Now all I need is the email for the restting of my password lol
Spencer J.
you're welcome, sorry about that.
its nothing big
one other ? do you folks build and ship full tower systems?
Spencer J.
We do not. We get them from the manufacturer already built, then sell them
ok that helps a lot my wife wants a new system and I might get it with your company rather then Costco
Spencer J.
Alright, cool :-) We have plenty to choose from!
that is good to know
Spencer J.
