The great thing about installing your drives like this is that the IO error counter becomes a handy seismometer

Hm what fan to install. So many choices. Some would say too many


New loft conversion PC. VST tape as SSD mounting method because life is short

NB I was not actually able to change the fans preventatively because they’re weird sizes (92*20, 50*20). Might order noctua replacements…

Might fuck around and actually make an EFI partition this time.

hacker voice I'm in and now actually using UEFI lol

@s0 I have absolutely taped SSDs to the inside of cases on several occasions and feel no shame whatsoever. Bless this case and all who sail in her.

@mike this roll of VST double sided foam tape is the best single adhesive product I’ve ever owned. I got it for a few bucks at reverse garbage and it sticks to anything almost unbelievably well, and if you do yank it off, it never splits down the middle like other foam tapes.

@s0 I swear by the pink Tarzan's Grip stuff. It has amazing hold but if you're determined and really go for it with a sharp blade underneath, the removal is completely clean.

Used it to attach a phone case to my bike handlebars once. Did not budge in transit at all.
