XC-605 add SDD

Hi


Is it possible to add an SSD to the PC? I would like to keep the old HHD and add the SSD, so I have both installed at the same time?

Thanks

Jakob

FAQ & Answers

  • Hi Jakob,

     

    The Aspire XC-605 is equipped with two bays (see attachment), two SATA 3.0 and one SATA 2.0 connectors:

    • 1x SATA 3.0 for HDD
    • 1x SATA 3.0 for DVD drive
    • 1x SATA 2.0 free

    Unfortunately the height of the bays = the width of the case so no space available.

    Thank you very much for the answer.

    Is the best setup to put the hhd to sata 2 and to put the new ssd to the first sata 3?

    I think  I can place the ssd safely in th pc.

    Do you know which cabels I need to buy?

      Yes it is.
    2. I think  I can place the ssd safely in th pc.
      Hmmm... it's a compact desktop so be careful.
    3. Do you know which cabels I need to buy?
      Do you have an available SATA power cable coming from the PSU?

  • Hello,

     

    No there isn’t a spare cable.

    So you only have two SATA power connectors coming from the PSU?

    You'll see an connector illustration in this table.
