RE: Instructions for adding a second and/or third Western Digital SATA HD to my new Dell XPS 8910

Do you need all 3 of them in that package, or only one?

Since I don't have an XPS 8910, I can't say if a right angle SATA cable will be easier/better than a simple straight one. Depends on where power cable connects to the new drive, where the drive is installed, and how easy it is to connect to the drive and to the SATA port on the motherboard.

18" is probably ok and you want a SATA III cable. Just make sure to route the cable out of the way so it doesn't get caught in any of the fans, or possibly touch the heat sink which may get hot, when you close the case.

Got a geeky friend to help you with this?
