Upside-down HDD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, I have 2x 2.5" HDD, in my system, 1 is attached on the vertical 2.5" SSD mounts, while the other one is laid vertically on the side panel where all the cable management hides.

 

I want to move the 2nd HDD to the other 2.5" drive mount which is horizontally oriented, but I want it to be hidden, so I want to mount it under the mounting plate and still attached to the plate but upside-down. Will it be a problem for the mechanical system inside it and affect its operating performance?

Modern drives are nothing like the our drives from back in the day. Won't hurt them at all, especially 2.5" drives, which are inherently designed for laptops, which not only mount them any which way, but are rarely stationary.

It's a Seagate Momentus 5400 rpm it's an old 2.5" external/mobile HDD which I took off from its shell and put inside my PC, I think I bought it in 2009 or 2010, so it's quite old drive.
