Greetings,

I purchased GL65 Leopard 10SCXR-061XTR recently and I noticed that secondary slot space is very limited that I might have an issue if the disk is thicker than the requirement.
Unfortunately, I could not find supported dimensions on MSI website and the technical service ignores my emails and phones for 3 weeks (I'd love to send a complaint email to HQ if I could the address).

So I need to order a disk as soon as possible and kindly ask for your assistance

Thank you for your time

Laptop bridges between the MB and devices are only limited in speed by the device using it. so a mechanical drive that is stock standard as a second drive is actually a bottle next to unleashing the full perfomance of the laptop.
Best looking at a standard solid state drive. I bought one years ago and transferred it into the new GT76 I have and the laptop screams in performance. (Samsung 850/860 pro 1TB SSD)

Thank you for the additional information. What kind of bottleneck issues have you experienced? Can you post it if you have time? Thank you in advance

Sorry for late reply. Mechanical drives are usually used in MSI laptops as the second data drive. Most use the drive to run games but the usual transfer speeds are very slow compared to SSD's and Nvme Pcie ssd drives. for instance a speed of 129mbps for mechanical drives and the slowest SSD is 500mbps. The Nvme PCIE ssd's will get around 4,000mbps.

It is not a problem and thank you for your time. So the concern is pretty much about data transfer rather than game-related performance issues. Right? I plan to get 1TB HDD on 2nd slot for storing data whenever I need it and run all games/programs on SSD. Im out of budget but if you say adding HDD affects SSD's speed cause performance issues on games,etc., then I have to reconsider
Thank you in advance
