    Auto correct likes to have fun sometimes but you are right, happy little heatsinks that are snugly fit do much better ;)

    Forgot to ask the most important question. Can I run a double sided SSD or no? The ones I'm looking at, 2TB MP510 and 2TB EX950 are all double sided I think.

    XoticPC confirmed it's single sided only

    Edit: Could I actually get a definitive answer on this? Donald@HIDevolution said it should be fine.

    Travelling atm but the height of the supporting post in a picture and the m.2 slot will tell you. If matches our other systems like the desktop ones then double sided is supported.

    The ifixit kit is great if you intend to fiddle around a fair bit.

    The PB5/7xx service manuals should be on Prema's site, also.
