Room for another SSD?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone,

 

Can I add another SSD to my PC? I think I remember hearing someone tell me that I don't have any more room to add one, but I'm not positive.

 

Case: Corsair 760t

Current Storage: Samsung 850 EVO (500GB) and Seagate Barricuda (2TB)

 

If not, maybe I could scrap my HD and then I would have room for another SSD?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

You can add as many drives as you have SATA ports.

 

No more places to put an SSD in your case? Duct tape it to an obscure spot and route the cables through.

There is always room for ssd's, you could always get double sided duct tape and tape it to your case near your cable managment area.

This is what a 760T looks like;

You even have yours as your profile pic

It has FOUR tool-free SSD slots in addition to the six 3.5" drive bays.

Three of which are visible in plain sight through the huge window.

 

Do you even know what you bought?


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
