    Posted: 25 Apr 2021 at 10:18am
I am thinking of adding a new 6TB HDD to my three year old Lumos.

My configuration is 1815869.

I currently have one SSD and one 2TB HDD.

Looking at the interior of the case, I am baffled about where to place a new HDD. I have installed a HDD on my old Windows XP desktop, but the Lumos intimidates me.

Thanks for any advice.

Not having the case, the pics just don't show me much. shoot an e-mail to   [email protected]   . You shouldn't have to wait long.

It should not be much of a problem. That's a mid size case and there should be some bays available and could even be pre-wired but.....(it does show that the case has 7 expansion slots and the mobo has 8 SATA ports. Your configuration shows that you have an M.2 SATA and a HDD so you have plenty of overhead to include another HDD. Like Cretae suggested send an e-mail to DS tech guru Stellar and he'll help you out.
Keep us posted for others with the same idea. Smile

You can see the drive(s) mount(ed) in the following image.



Your system should have one at the top and an empty tray below it.

Page 10 of the manual does have HDD installation instructions, although, very simplistic, even a bit crude.

Corsair Crystal Series 570X Install Guide

Supposedly, it's tool-less: thumb screws, push, pull, that sort of stuff.

So, it appears there are HDD trays behind the SSD trays. Is that it?
