Missing Y connector in my Corsair One i300


Recommended Posts

I have a spare 1TB SSD drive. I was thinking of adding it in the free drive bay of my recently purchased Corsair One i300.

A free data cable with SATA connector is present in the computer, but unfortunately a power lead with SATA connector is missing.

I guess it must be a Y-connector. I'm hoping Corsair can supply one that fits, but where and how can I order and buy one?

I think you got this mixed up.  There is a SATA power connector available in the i300, and a SATA ‘data cable is missing.

As I mentioned elsewhere I suggest getting a low-profile (slim) 20cm (8”) cable because a regular data cable will prove very clunky inside this small case.

Also use SATA connector 4 (lowest, furthest right) on the motherboard to keep optimal air-flow around the ddr5 memory.

I currently use a Samsung QVO 8TB ssd in mine, not using the tray.

Yes, you're quite right. I was confused and got terms switched. It *is* the data cable and connectors missing. A 15-pin power connector and 7-pin data connector are rather contra-intuitive.

I realised my error when looking for a cable in the Newegg webshop.

Please tell me where you got yours.

Thanks for the info.

Ah, you’re Dutch/Belgian.  I bought this one (or 4 actually, as I’m considering Intel Raid): https://www.megekko.nl/product/2451/155710/SATA-Data-Kabels/DeLOCK-83839-Satakabel-0-2m-6Gbps-flexi-kabel-zwart?s_o=1

10cm will definitely proof too short.

Nope. it doesn't.

I installed the 10 cm cable.
It did fit exactly. But then MOST PRECISELY indeed.
Had the cable been 1 mm shorter, it would have failed.
Of course the ultimate proof is: IT WORKS!

P.S. Sorry, in my anxiety to see the result, I plumb forgot to take a photo.

Lol.  It is now in SATA connector 2 probably, which is very close to the ddr5.  I would have gone for a comfortable length myself.  It is good to have an extra internal storage device, so that is a plus.
