Hi, my pc case is too small to install a HDD into the caddy by my power supply, my power supply doesn’t leave enough room for the cage to be in so I have had to take the cage out of the case. I am aware that hard drives shouldn’t be left dangling or hanging free as they vibrate and have moving parts. I currently have a 3.5” HDD sea gate barracuda and I don’t know how else I can secure this drive into place.

would it be okay to leave it laying flat on the bottom of my case with my SSD? Or is there any external docking station I can use to secure it or anything? I have seen I can buy a 2TB m.2 ssd but they are quite expensive compared to this drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

In the front bottom, there are two spaces for 3.5" drives.


The PSU is too large and you had to remove the drive cage?
What PSU is this?
The cables coming out the back of the psu don’t leave enough room for the drive cage next to it, the cables don’t bend very easily and they cannot be plugged in while the drive cage is in.
