    I just recieved a new SATA HDD for my son's computer, but as it turns out it's a server HDD. My question is, can I use a server HDD in a PC? Or should I just RMA back to Newegg? The connections are the same, but it is a bit longer than a standard HDD. THANKS!!! Also, if I can use it, how do I secure it insides the case?

    No, it will work in a home pc, but the specs are for servers/enterprise. They generally are made for longevity & performance. If it's recognized in bios, it can be used.
