Hi,

is there layout for PO3-630 motherboard somewhere? I simply can't find ports for sata cable to add new HDD.

    The PO3-630 models haven't been released in the USA or Canada yet, so we don't yet have access to full specs or a service guide. The assumption is they will have MBs very much like the PO3-620 models, but we won't know until they show up here.

    Hi Leostat and thanks for answer. Unfortunately it's not similar to P03-620 mainboard where sata ports are right next to memory. Here's picture from inside my PC:



    At least my untrained eye can't find correct ports anywhere on it. Sata3 / Sata4 can be seen on top right corner but anything can't be connected to them. No idea where 1 & 2 are.

    Thank you Billsey. Seems I have to remove graphic card first to connect sata cable. Not the best design in world if you ask me :(. Also I wonder why specs says it should have 4 sata connections.

    Looks like your board has unpopulated M.2 slot on it. I'd utilize that before any HDD. That is, if 1Tb is enough for your storage. If you need bigger than that the prices tend to jump up considerably. :( External HDD cases can be had for peanuts.

    The Spec I can see says two SATA drive bays and two M.2 SSD slots. Maybe that's where the four drives things was coming from. It does look like one of the M.2 SSD slots is PCIe 4.0 x4 and the other PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA.

    I think they are just standard sata , just the housing is a bit different
