Can I use thermal pads as spacer for a 7mm SSD in a 9.5mm HDD caddy?
Hi, I installed an SSD in my laptop two days ago, however the old HDD of my laptop was 9.5mm in height and the new SSD is 7mm in height.
I couldn’t seem to find a spacer in any of my local electronics shops but I did see thermal pads. I was thinking I could paste a 1mm and 1.5mm thermal pads one on top of the other and make a spacer of my own. However I don’t want anything to burn or cause disturbances of any kind and I was wondering if thermal pads are a safe material to paste to my SSD.
Could anyone please share their thought on this? Thanks in advance for your help!!
