    I would echo Syburgh's suggestion about using a 2nd SATA drive for the OS. That's the route I've gone. I'm waiting for solid state drives of decent size / performance / longevity to come down out of the price stratosphere. In the mean time, I'm using the cheapest, smallest 2.5" laptop SATA drives I can find for the OS drive in the WindPC. I've been putting them in the DVD drive bay, secured by a single screw with a bit of anti-static bag underneath to insulate the bottom of the drive. Not ideal, but it works fine.

    I've built 4 WindPC systems this way and they are all performing satisfactorily.

    At work we bought Icy Box Mobile Racks. They were the shortest internal caddies we could find. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mobile-Rack-...992947&sr=1-10
