Well he should be OK since he isn't changing out the power supply.

Actually, it states in the opening post that he's putting in a power supply, and more hard drives.

Not saying all new parts are needed, but if the motherboard is proprietary, I would start with a new motherboard. You've got 2 IDE channels, which will limit you to 4 drives in total, since you can only control 2 devices at once on each channel.

Hmmm OK let me just look at this list of excuses... ah here's one... *cough*... "it was late". That'll do.


Well if the motherboard and PSU are proprietry that does spell trouble to come. The good news is that the PSU might not even need to be changed out.

akasixcon what PSU do you have in there?
