trying to find an SSD caddy

Optiplex 5000 Tower

Optiplex 5000 Tower

Hi all,

I'm trying to get hold of a caddy to mount a 2.5" ssd in my Optiplex 5000 Tower. The variant I need is the 54PCC, but Dell technical assistance are anything but helpful.

I simply cannot source one in the UK, or even see one worldwide for that matter.

From these conversations:

https://www.dell.com/community/en/conversations/optiplex-desktops/optiplex-tower-25-hdd-caddy-bracket-variants-series-6/647fa336f4ccf8a8de905fc2?keyword=54PCC

https://www.dell.com/community/en/conversations/optiplex-desktops/optiplex-3880-mt-25-hard-drive-ssd-bracket/647f988ff4ccf8a8debaff9a

I see the 9T3F1 looks very similar. Is it the same bracket (metal version)?

Thanks for the help,

No that is not a Dell site but the price info comes from Dell internal database.

try chat w Dell US site on line and ask for stock availability, even though you are UK based.

Hi again!

Is that a legit site? I came across it when I was searching but they didn't seem to be directly for sale. But I will submit a request form to them if they are .

Dell say they can't supply a 54PCC, and suggested I buy G3FV8. Which I did. But is doesn't fit. But that's another story....
