How many are SATA ports for this motherboard

HP Recommended
Omen #870-119
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello and I have not been here for a while till this evening. Now I have a question about adding another Solid State Drive (internal) in my desktop. But I realize that I only have 3 SATA ports on motherboard. All 3 are already in use with one for the hard drive, another is for SSD and last one is for DVD RW. Is that correct that this motherboard with Odense2-S have 3 SATA ports or four ports. It's very hard to see the diagram of the motherboard and I know I have to open up the case to see the motherboard where the SATA ports are? The only thing is that I can purchase M.2 SSD card for my desktop but I already have extra SSD in hand. Also I can put this to be an external port. Let me know about this.

The M.2 slot is for a wifi adapter.

 

What you can do is purchase an adapter that will plug into a PCIe slot on your motherboard. I happpen to own and use an ASUS Hyper M.2 x4 PCIe mini card in the desktop I am typing this on. THere is also a faster PCIe x16 version available.

 

That appears to be your only viable current option for adding an M.2 SSD to your desktop PC.

Thank you for your reply and I thought so about can add an M.2 SATA III SSD (Solid State Drive) on my desktop. That's the only way to have this because there's no room for SATA port unless disconnect the DVD RW optical drive but I prefer to have this leave as is.

 

Thank you,

 

John
