GA-Z87X-UD5H Gigabyte mother board
where on this MB would I plug in a 15 pin male SATA plug for an external SATA3 dock? This is for a Corsair 650D tower.
LouBraun said:I did not see a 15 pin SATA connection on this motherboard or on the back panel. If your dock accepts a UBS3 connection, you could easily plug it in one of the external back panel connections.
USB3 is becoming the preferred standard for external devices.
My problem is not the lack of SATA3 plugin ports. I have plenty of those. My problem is that the dock that came with my 650D tower only has a 15 pin male SATA3 plug to fire up that dock. Now I am wondering if there is a way to convert that plug to a standard SATA3 plug so that I can plug it into my MB??
