Here are a few pictures of my new OCZ Agility 120GB SSD.
Newegg.com - OCZ Agility Series OCZSSD2-1AGT120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks






To give you a perspective of it's size I've laid a box of Cig's next to it.



In order to mount this drive I had to order a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket.
Newegg.com - BYTECC Bracket-25350 Dual 2.5" HDD/SSD Bracket for 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure - HDD Accessories
As you can see I've painted the brackets Black and I drilled a couple of holes to mount a fan.

I doubt you'll need the fan on top, unless the Agility series runs significantly hotter than other SSD's.

I've got one of mine in an external enclosure and another in my main rig. Also got another one running in a lappy. None of them are experiencing heat issues at all.

Here's my new OCZ Agility 120GB SSD running Windows7 Professional


And I used the drives I had Vista64 and the Windows7 RC on and set them up in a Raid0 for Data (2x Seagate Barracuda 250GB)


Here are a few runs of 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark06 with a fresh install of Win 7 Pro

Vantage - 28555 - ORB - Compare



3DMark06 - 28009 - ORB - Compare
