    Here's the only teardown guide I've seen:

    It doesn't really mention anything about the rubber feet though.

    Has anyone tried to install game on external HDD and then play it from there? Dues to paucity of space, i am thinking to install few games (like GTA V, wolfenstein new order- which take heavy disk space) on external HDD. Mine is a USB 3.0 5400RPM 1 TB WD HDD. What i want to know is that what would be the performance of games and if anyone has tried it?

    Bad idea. It will be ultra slow, even from a SSD. its nothing to do with the types of hard drives, it's the usb.

    I did this with my desktop for a while and the only issue I ran into was slightly longer (or just longer, depending on the game) load times. If you already have the hardware just try it out with one game and see if it works well enough for you.

    This is actually how I play my games. I have Far Cry 3, Crysis 2, GRID, GTA V, Tomb Raider, Portal 2, Planetside 2, and Mortal Kombat X on a 640GB HDD I ripped out of my old laptop, and the only game on my SSD is Battlefield 3. Personally I don't find it bad at all. If anything back when SSD's were much more expensive, A LOT of people had their desktop builds set up this way (some still do for mass storage). Some games don't benefit too much from being on an SSD. Others, like Battlefield 3, benefit to the point where I spawn before anyone....literally. It all depends on how much space you're willing to sacrifice for faster loading times, while keeping in mind that not every game will benefit from loading faster, or benefit from being on an SSD. I honestly have no clue which ones do or don't. I just go on games I care about the most (BF3).

    So, you mean to say that you don't find any difference in terms of performance if games or loading times? If that is the case, then it solves my issue as i can install max games on external hdd & play.

    Yep no performance difference, just longer loading times.
