He is 9 months old on the 15th. My fiance beat me to the job in the beginning of the summer so for this round I was stay at home dad. Currently taking online courses to get my associates in 2 things. She got fired from he full time job on friday so I'm on the hunt. Hoping I get to do the work this time.

Are you saying I could hook up an internal on that hotswap and use that for the back up?

Well technically you can use anything you want for backup. It was kind of what I was implying by needing to backup large things before. Just keep in mind the basic idea with hot swapping is to be able to change drives without needing to shut off your computer. That's all it is.

Thanks!

Thanks,

looks good, now just get some zip ties and pull those wires out of the way to make it look slick.

Well not 3. Unless you're hot swapping SSDs a standard drive wont fill up 3.0 on either bus.

Thanks Jason! That was my old computer and I did zip all those nasty cables away. Now I am building a new rig using the HAF X and it is so much easier due to excellent cable management holes and such. This will be my best computer ever and I am kinda excited.

Thanks again for helping me understand the hows and whys behind the hotswap and other such things. I had no clue whatsoever why I would want to use a hotswap.

I am thinking about using the hotswap bay set up for back up. This will provide less wires and such on the outside of the case [external HHD power wires, usb cables, etc.].
