1/3h expansion slot? what is that

Recommended Posts

am working on a HP Compaq Business Desktop dc5800 - Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz

 

 

 

it's a small form factor case that came with (1) 250gb harddrvie. I would like to add anther drive and the paperwork indicates that there is (1) free expansion slot "1 ( 1 ) x front accessible - 3.5" x 1/3H"

 

 

 

how can I tell if I am buying a drive that is 1/3h? I tried google, but can't find information on that

I'm fairly sure that 3.5" x 1/3h HDD is the standard size drive at 1" high. There used to be 1.63" high HDD's that were known as half height (1/2h) but you don't see many about these days.

Don't take my word for it but I'm 99% sure I'm right. I don't offer any compensation if I'm wrong! ;)

 

Does the HDD bay on your DC5800 not look like it will take a standard HDD?
