I am new to the forum and new to the PC world. I am currently buying all the components to do my 1st PC build.
My PC will be used mainly for basic home use. Primarily store home pics/vids and music.
I currently am not a gamer, but do intend to play some gaming In the future. Hoever I do not anticipate being a hardcore gamer.
I am building my PC as future proof as possible. I am buying components that are more then adequate for my needs. But that's the fun of building.
I have a question about SATA III connections.
I recently purchased a Corsair PSU. I don't have it in front of me, but I believe it is a CX750 and has 6 SATA III connections.
SATA III connections connect into.... (please correct me if I'm wrong)
1: my SSD
2. my HDD (I do intend to run a raid o HDD). Si with 2 HDDs in RAID O, that requires 2 SATA III connections?
3. MY optical drive. (If I choose to go with an internal).
4. My card read ( If I go with an internal )
Does a SATA III connections plug into my liquid cooling unit? I am looking into going with a Corsair 100i? Or does that plug into my MOBO?
Does my graphics card plug into a SATA III connections? Or does that plug into my MOBO
Case fans and internal fans: My case has an exhaust and 2 intake fans. I do intend to add some HDD fans. What do all the fans connect into?
Thanks for reading and helping.
