  1. The hot swap green pcb should have a power and data connection that plugs into a sata data cable and molex power cable.

    I have read horror stories of people with the HAF XB using the hot swap in that case and frying hard drives. Don't know how that happened.

    Personally I would just skip the hot swap feature, unscrew the green pcb and put it in the motherboard box and just run power and data cables.

    Hi!
    I have the new model, with a standard SATA-Power Conector instead of the Molex one at the PBC!
    You can demand this new PBC in internet or stores.
    I change often the HDDs, for testing, reparation and Backups, and is the best solution.
    Actually i have 2x2GB WD Green Caviar inside, and for the moment no problems in any of the 3 OSes i Use: OSX, Ubuntu, W8!
    ITS the very best solution i know, like the whole BOX!
