Help with 3.5 to 2.5 rail in Lower HD Compartment of 800D


Recommended Posts

Have the Asus P6 Premium Sata 3.0 / USB 6 board in my 800D and have a few SSDs (P256 and X128) with some Raptors connected to the SATA 2.0 ports on my board.


Just bought a ******** RealSSD 256gb drive and plan to connect it to one of my 3.0 ports.


I plan to place this SSD in the lower HD section but of course the SSD is 2.5 inches and the lower bay is 3.5.


The Hotswappable section would work but the backplate I suspect is Sata 2.0


I need a simple aluminum adapter to pop into the rails on that lower HD 'cage' area.


I am looking at the Lian-Li HD 321 and 322.




Something more generic : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817994085


The first link gives some specs and it looks like they're only for LianLi cases... but they appear to be the only brackets like these I can find.


Please help. Just need 1!

Spoke to tech support because I wanted to make sure I could order the right component and have it arrive by this weekend to do the reinstall and system fix.


He recommended removing the SATA backplate over the hotswap drive area.


Will this remove the : hot swap nature of ALL the drives? Or before I go perform surgery, does each drive bay have its own backplane?

Each hot swappable drive bay has its own backplane circuit board. You can simply remove one of the backplane circuit boards and install the SSD in one of the hot swappable bays, you just wont be able to use the hotswap functionality for that drive.
