Question Advice on HDD installation!

Mar 19, 2020
I am currently new to the PC world and I am curious about my HDD. Quick heads up that I have already purchased the HDD itself but my concern is in regards to the HDD bracket:

1. Does it matter if I use a different HDD Bracket? I am considering purchasing a (PH-SDBKT_01) or (PH-SDBKT_02).

2. For my case, does it matter if I buy a modular or traditional 3.5” bracket? If there’s no difference, which type of bracket is better to have for my case?

Let me know if photos are needed.
