@Axel-van-e, welcome to the forum.

 

You will have to use the existing cables with a "Y" adapter for the data and power.  You should make certain that you choose the correct adapter.  If you are not certain which is correct, you can contact StarTech's Tech Support using their Chat Live option.  They have always been extremely helpful for me.

@Axel-van-e,

You could also re-route that DVD drive to an  internal PCIE card.

Note: the 870 series use Fillister head screws for the hard drive.
