can i put a 3,5 hhd in HP Pavilion Gaming 690-0800no

HP Pavilion Gaming 690-0800no
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

hi can i put a 3,5 hhd in hp pavilion 690-0800no black .

can see there is a slot to a hhd . but dont see extra power cables to one hhd .

bought the gamer pc to my boy and want some extra hhd space . because the 250 ssd is to small .and dont think a usb hhd is the best way to install games and play from . think at the transfer rate/speed .

Hi,

You can install a 3.5" HDD or a 2.5" SSD. You will need a SATA cable to connect the drive to motherboard.

Example:

https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-18-Inch-Cable-Locking-90-Degree/dp/B009GUXU52/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UT...

 

Look if there is an extra Sata power connector coming from the Power supply. If not, you could get a splitter and use the power cable going to DVD drive and split with adaptor cable:

Look on page 12 of below guide:

You should use this drive as storage and install any applications on the M2 SSD the PC came with as it is much faster,

 

Hope it helps,

David
