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.

@Irek79

 

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.

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

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).
