Where to put the new HDD in my PC case?

SSD's no problem putting them on with some sticky tape or whatever.

Mechanical drives i would not do that with, they damage more easily due to shocks and they have moving parts so you kinda want to fasten them.
But if you dont move your case have a flat spot to put it (horizontaly) and it wont slide should NOT be a reason to break/not work.

Hello!

 

I bought a new internal HDD for my PC config, but my H17 Thermaltake Versa (mATX) case support only one slot for HDDs, which is already have one.

 

1) There is plenty of space under my GPU for the new one, is it good enough to leave it there without proper fixation to the case? I do not know how well it would behave under a GPU running on load 60-70 degrees.

 

2) Would it be wise to put it over my old HDD (fixed to case) without fixation?

 

Thank you for your help.

I mean, you could probably tape it down or something, but yeah as long as you aren't tossing around the case or tipping it you'll be fine. That's how mine was. I just used some electrical tape and taped the thing down a little and it was all good
