    NUC5i5RYH HDD Expansion


      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.
