Hi,

 

If you look carefully at the below image, you will see that the OMEN 870-1xx series is provisioned to support three (3) physical hard drives. If you want use more three SATA devices then I suggest that you not use the optical drive if installed but instead use a USB connected optical drive. I even ran into this situation of not having enough SATA ports on a Z270 chipset motherboard and elected to use an USB optical drive.  I seldom use optical these days and more and more PCs are being sold without optical drives.  Optical is a dying technology. However if may still be beneficial to you. If the PCIe x1 slot is open in your PC then you could add a PCIe card to provide additional SATA ports.

Hi,

 

The OMEN 870-119 is prewired for three hard drives. 

 

Before you buy a HD, remove your existing HD and take a photo of the HD mounting glide screws and then post the photo. This HP manual should be helpful.

 

Thanks.

Open up the PC and look.

 

Also per my other post, post an image of the HD mounting glide screws.  The community would like to see the mounting glide screws.

Re: OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-119

there is no solution to add a third sata drive internally as all cables are

already in use

 

 

                                1 SSD

                                2 HDD

                                3 Cd/Dvd rom

 

at the retail/box store I was told there  was space for expansion , technically there is a space

not what i was needing asit was my old p.c hard drive

But for you ?

 

unless you unplug one of the above which i figure would be the cd/dvd if you need space

or get an   USB3.0 sata cable or drive enclosure with the same specs ........... then you have a 3rd  sata drive without messing with the existing configuration

 

unless anyone else knows different solution

Re: OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-119

UNless I'm missing something, from the specification & pictures shown here:

 

http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-100-desktop-pc-series/12079703/document/c05241080...

 

It's clear that motherboard has only three SATA ports.

 

So you can connect only three devices - and it sounds like they're connected already (SSD, HD, DVD).
