I recently purchased a Level 4 Vanquish II, and I'm interested in adding a 3.5-inch SATA drive from my old PC to the new rig. I don't immediately see a way to add that hard drive and connect it to the motherboard. The drive's several years old but in good shape, and I'd prefer to put it in the case than get an enclosure and use it that way. Thanks for any insight anyone can provide. I clearly really know what I'm doing. ;)

It's very easy to do this, check the accessories box, there should be spare hard drive brackets she can add to the PC.

Thanks for that information. More specifically, in the Vanquish case, I didn't see a connector for another SATA drive. I think I see power connectors but not the data ones to plug into the motherboard.

The SATA power connectors are part of the psu harness and would be there like you said, but the SATA data cable from HDD to the mobo aren't pre-installed.  Look in the accessory box that came with the rig for a spare cable.  If there isn't any, you'd need to buy one.

Hope this helps. Big%20Smile
