Hey all,

Here is my current build (3 months old):

CPU: i5 3570k
MOBO: asus p8z77-v lk
RAM: 4 x 4gb DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaw
GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817139020
it's a corsair enthusiast TS650
Hard Drive: Samsung 830 128gb SSD

I just purchased a second Samsung 830 128gb SSD since i started running out of space on the first. I mounted the drive into the bracket, i plugged the SATA cable into the SSD and into the motherboard, and i connected a power cable from the PSU into the SSD.

Both SSDs show up in my BIOS, as in, they are both detected. However, when i boot up my computer and go into My Computer, i only see a "C://" drive as the original SSD i had (the one that's running out of space). Where is the other one?

Thanks
