    Re: Full Tower Case For Next Build: Recommendations?

    I've built my new system with the 800D, but now I have a few things I'm uncertain about. I noticed Corsair sells a SATA 6 gb/s upgrade kit for the 800d's hot swap bay, but I assumed it already came with SATA III. Do I need this upgrade kit if I want to use 6 gb/s? Or do I have a newer version of the 800d that automatically comes with it? Upgrade kit: http://www.corsair.com/en/pc-cases/c...grade-kit.html This is important to me because I've invested extra for my SSDs so I want to make sure I get the extra performance I've paid for.

    Also I have the same question about the USB 3.0 controller. It looks like it has it, but maybe I'm mistaken. Do I need this upgrade: http://www.corsair.com/en/pc-cases/c...grade-kit.html

    I'm almost certain it already has USB 3, now.

    Given how recently that you bought it, your case should have both already. I suspect that you might need to contact Corsair to sure. For the USB ports, mine shows two with black inserts and two with blue inserts, suggesting USB 2 and USB 3.

    How many sata power cable connections are there on the backplane?
    The 6Gb has only one power cable connection and it feeds the 4 drives via printed circuit, where as the 3Gb has separate power connections
    for each drive.
