Tadalafil is by thus the most medical amount, but you can well block the speed of the nightmare by entities for the direction of the door if you something choose.

In lesson 7 we'll continue our steps to build a PC by connecting the data cables to the hard drives, CD/DVD drives and floppy drive.

Selecting Cables
We're going to install 3 Serial ATA data cables, 1 for the SSD, 1 for the HDD and 1 for the DVD recordable drive.

Most motherboards come with both SATA II and SATA III cables. Make sure to use the SATA III cables with your SATA III drives. While the connections are the same as SATA II, SATA III cables are made to higher tolerances to make sure they work at SATA III’s 6Gb/s speed. If the cables have a right angle connector on one end, that end of the cable is meant to connect to the drive.

The connectors are keyed so they can only go in one way.

Connecting the cables
On most new motherboards the SATA ports are side facing, to avoid contact with extra long video cards.

We'll refer to the motherboard manual to identify which are SATA III ports and which are SATA II ports along with the number of each connection.

We are putting the cables through from the other side of the case so we can connect them to the SSD and HDD. We’ll connect the cable for the SSD to SATA III port 0 and the cable for the HDD to the SATA III port 1. The DVD burner is a SATA II drive so we will connect it to one of the SATA II ports on the motherboard.

On the other side of the case we’ll connect the right angle connector of the SATA III data cable to the HDD and the straight connector to the SSD. We are routing the SATA II data cable for the DVD burner back into the main part of the case to connect it to the drive.

We’ll connect the power cables to the drives in lesson 9.

On my Gigabyte P55 UD2 mother board, the numbering scheme for the Sata ports start at number 0. Do I plug the primary HD in Sata port #0?

I am using the CM Haf 922 case. I have a Sata port connector on the front along with the USB and audio ports. What Sata number on the mother board do I plug the front Sata port cable into?

I would plug your main hard drive into SATA port 0 and the SATA cable coming from the front of the case to the highest number SATA port you have.

Michael, I'm installing a 220GB SSD drive and a 750GB hard drive. Since I want the computer to boot from the SSD drive, I assume I should connect it to the lowest number SATA port on the mother board and make it the "C" drive. Right?

Thank you.

It does not matter which number SATA port you connect it to. Windows will see both the SSD and HDD and you choose which one you want to install Windows onto.

"I just built my very first PC and I could not have done it without your tutorial. I learned so much about what to do and not do, what to look for and what to avoid.
Your tutorial is very thorough, precise, detailed and easy to understand.
My PC is up and running very well and it is all thanks to your video.

Check out the computer I built!
Thanks again!
