hi folks.
am using asus maximus formula mobo, and was wondering if I can use an SSD on it. Is this possible? The SSDs are a little difficult to plug on, as they are not like HDDs (our IT installed the SSD at the office, so I saw that it was NOT a piece of cake - at least not for me).
I'd appreciate if you could put a picture showing the steps or at least a pic of how it should look when it is finished

many thanks in advance.

If you have SATA connectors on your mobo, you can use an SSD. Installing an SSD is the same as installing a HDD except the SSD is smaller so it may have to mount onto a tray to fit in a hard drive bay. I'm sorry that your tech made it look hard, it really isn't.
Watch a few youtube videos on installing SSD's, you'll see just what is involved.
Good luck, enjoy
