XPS 8940, four HDD, seems to be only three SATA plugs for data cables

Jump to solution

I would like to install four(4) HDD in my XPS 8940. Two 2.5's and two 3.5's, but it seems to me to have only three SATA plugs for data cables on the motherboard. I realize that I will have to purchase an additional cable, but can't find a plug for it.

please advise,
