    So I installed my Corsair 256--got it all installed and works awesome.

    Here is my question. I didn't have a screwdriver that could take out the screws on the stock HDD.

    But the SSD fit super snugly. I put the top bracket on but there are no screws around the SSD. Do I need to go back in and put them in? or does it not matter since its a SSD?

    I checked out a youtube vid yesterday showing the SSD install (he had an intel x-25) and he put the screws back in.

    Probably not crucial if there is no movement, and I guess the screws being in place prevent that.

    I would spend the extra time to pick up a screwdriver and put the screws back in.

    But hey, that's just me.
