    Return

    Last week, I bought some parts to upgrade my current build. Along with this was a SSD. When I came to install everything yesterday, I noticed that my power supply had no room to install the SSD into the case. the SSD has been opened as I was just about to install it, but It has no been used/powered up. Would I still be able to return this?

    When you say your PSU has no room to install the SSD into the case, what do you mean?

    jcsix,

    Looking through the order it appears as though you have the following case

    Xclio Touch

    This case should have ample room to install the SSD as the PSU goes at the bottom of the case and you should be able to install the SSD in any of the 3.5" bays - providing you use a 2.5 to 3.5" SSD bracket.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Return

    By no room on the PSU, I ment the SATA slots. The power supply only has two SATA slots which both are already used up, I thought that there was more when I ordered it but it was obviously my mistake, unless I can actually use the L4P and L4P+S4P slots for it? I'm still new to building as you may tell.

    The power supply I have is a Powercool PC750UM 750W Modular Power Supply (PSU).

    The simple solution is if you are using all the 4 SATA power connections on that PSU is to simply convert the Molex to SATA by using the following cable ;

    Molex to SATA

    The PSU is specified as having 4 SATA power slots - are you sure you haven't mislaid two of the connectors

    Re: Return

    Everything fine now. Thanks guys anyways.

    I installed windows successfully using the usb method since it didn't want to read from my optical drive (was in my older computer). However, I'm drying to install drivers (Monitor, Graphics, Motherboard) and it doesn't want to read anything though its recognised. It was working perfectly before in my old build.

    Edit: Just un-installed then restarted pc. Seems like its working now.
