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.
