    Tax refund is coming, and with that a couple Intel 160GB SSD's. But, do they come with an adapter so the drives can use a standard 3.5 bay?

    TBH i just use'd masking tape to stick it into a bay :p .. but you can buy a separate 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor for about $15-25.


    i doubt they come with an adaptor but i havnt bought an intell ssd before.

    The 2 in 1 caught my eye, and I live alone. No one to blame but myself. My Cosmos case has a front door as well. Extra security.

    edit: That OCZ solution looks good too.
