Ssd drive

Hi

I have recently bought the following drive OCZSSD2-1ONX32G with the following bracket the drive fits into the bracket but the screws on the bracket don't line up properly with holes in the case I can only get one screw in each side one I have one side screwed in I cannot screw in the second side because bracket is not big
enough for the screw to be I installed on the second side.


Please can someone advise if I need to get the Ocz bracket instead?


The bracket that I'm currently using is

Kingston 2.5" to 3.5" Hard Drive Bracket and.. | Ebuyer.com

I used velcro and just attached my drive into a small space in my case with that. Since the drive has no moving parts and doesn't have to remain still when in operation, it seemed alright.

Ok, Thanks for your reply.

I found out that my case Antec 300 had the screws already cut out underneath the case. One problem I am having now is that every program I have tried so far is not displaying the temp for the SSD Drive, I have tried HD Tune and HWmonitor.

Is there any particular reason that you want to know the temperature of your hard drive? I can understand your CPU/GPU..but I've never bothered with the temp of a HD...

SSDs have no moving parts so shouldnt generate any heat, dont think they have any temp sensors at all. As for temp monitoring programs I doubt any of the popular ones will work because they are not made for ssd's. Try touching the ssd, that'll give you an idea.

Now mechanical hard disks, those are different. Unlike CPUs which are made to withstand temps as high as 100 degrees celsius, most hds are supposed to operate only upto about 55 degrees. Frequent heating and cooling causes the platters to expand and contract, creating scope for mechanical damage. Strangely all of us obsess far more about our CPUs than about hard drives.

Hi,
Thanks for your replies,

I was just wanted to know what sort of temp it was running at. I have felt the drive and it seems to be running cool.
