    That’s great! That said, I have a massive backlog on Steam as it is :(

    How much space would you say is there for the 2.5" HDD bay? I'd love to put in a 5TB BarraCuda drive, but it's 15mm thick.

    I don't think its possible but next time I take the cover off I will see if I can measure it accurately enough to know for sure.

    Appreciate it.

    I also sent an email to HID asking about it. Will share it with you if I get a reply first.

    HID got back to me. Apparently the space isn’t tall enough - it would bulge out by 3-4mm.

    Technically feasible as in the hard drive can be recognized but the bottom case wouldn’t fit :(
