hi I just ordered an SSD and have the same prebuilt pc. As this is my first pc. I would love if you could provide pictures/video demonstrating how to install it.
Thanks for your recommendation and sorry for the late response. Would online games work just as well in-game(I understand they would load slower) if I used an external hard drive instead of the internal one you linked here. An external hard drive would be helpful for me for work purposes bringing files back and forth from home to the office.
Great thank you, and just generally speaking the only difference between an external ssd vs hdd is that the ssd is much quicker for transferring files correct? I see external HDDs are much cheaper and as a student I dont have a ton of disposable cash after buying the PC!
Once we buy a SATA cable, where do we connect it to the PowerSpec?
As for advice on performing the installation, it's pretty easy with our mATX 205 chassis. Remove the two thumb screws on the rear side panel behind the motherboard tray. From there, you will see a drive cage on the lower left corner of the chassis. Simply slide your drive in and use some 6-32 screws to secure the drive to the HDD cage. If you need pictures of this process, I have a chassis nearby and can help demonstrate the process if that will help.Let us know if you have any further questions!
Is the power supply for the SATA drives terminated in a SATA connection? Or are they male 6+2 connectors? Or something else?
