So I have a old Asus gl753ve laptop, and I want to put it's 2.5 inch 1tb hdd into my new pc, which is in a deepcool matrexx 55. Is it possible, and will the case support a 2.5 inch hdd? Thanks!

The case might or might not, but there are 2.5" to 3.5" drive bay adapters, so you can physically move the drive. Assuming these are both SATA devices, there is no worry there either. However, if the drive has Windows installed on it, the OS will not likely boot up and you would need to reinstall the OS while connected to the new hardware. If it's just data, then the above point is moot.

If it drive is completely empty it would work fine right?

Me....I'd have to download and read through the user manual.
Then post pics of where it might go.

You have the case right in front of you.
Open it up and look.
So I took the drive bay and saw a build guide so its fits 2.5 stuff. Now I need to hope the laptop uses SATA and that I have the screws to put it in place.....
