    NUC5i5RYH HDD Expansion

    Bill-Timm

      I have a NUC5i5RYH that i use as a media server. Works great!  Unfortunately, my 2TB HDD is almost out of space.

       

      The NUC5i5RYH can only accept a 2.5" HDD up to 9.5mm thick but all the larger HDDs appear to be 15mm thick.

       

      I did try an external USB drive and I tried referencing my NAS drive over Gb-ENET.  Both are too slow.

       

      Has anyone else had this problem?  Is there a 3TB HDD available that is only 9.5mm thick?  Is there an after-market base that might allow a thicker HDD?

       

      I am also thinking about modifying the existing base by removing the HDD holder and possibly even machining a new collar for the base using a CNC machine.

       

      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
