Hard drive caddy bodged

I'm new to the world of Mac's but I recently bought a cheap mac mini 2012 and updated the RAM and SSD for my daughter. I was so impressed with how cheap it all was (I even sourced a cinema display for it) that I decided to get one for myself.

All was great until I removed the caddy for the HDD and discovered that it didn't have the slots for the screws to mount the second drive. All the rest checks out as a late 2012 except for the drive caddy. I put the drive in and used some tape to keep it in place. Everything went back in, although a little tight and it all works fine. I am concerned that it will overheat as there may not be sufficient air flow to cool it.

Would I be better off finding a replacement caddy, although there are not that many out there, or will the bodge suffice?

Though it isn’t ideal I would not worry about the tape especially if the Mac stays still. Airflow shouldn’t be an issue since it pulls airflow through the bottom.

That's brilliant! Thank you and it sooths my worry about the house burning down 👍


Although it would help if I could spell "soothe"
