Looking for a barebone mini-PC that can hold a thicker HDD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi.

 

I'm looking into building a small server, and have decided to get a barebone kit and a 2TB 2.5" HDD for mass storage. However, all 2.5" 2TB HDDs I have found are thicker than 9.5mm, and all mini-PCs that support SATA HDDs support that thickness. So, can anybody suggest me a barebone mini-PC that can hold a 15mm 2.5" HDD?

External HDDs are much more expensive. And I might VESA mount this to the back of a living room TV, so an external HDD would be difficult to manage.

Velcro it (you can buy adhesive Velcro things)
