post #681 of 12482
Picked up an Asus P8P67 PRO and Seasonic X750. Ran out of SATA connections on my H67 board and it didn't support overclocking biggrin.gif

No.. It is just a one piece metal that mounts to the bottom of the case.  The screw in manually

 Not as of yet.  But we do have a thread from the front page to submit your ideas for one if you would like to.

 

I designed my own.

It took me a while to understand how your comments could be in any way related to my question, then I realised that you and I are talking about 2 different things. smile.gif

I'm talking about the X-Dock on the front panel. All I really want to know is, can I mount and unmount HDDs into it while the system is running?

 The answer is it is not Hot Swappable.  No computer is Sata Hot Swappable.  Because the bios has to be aware of Sata connections before boot up.  if this was a hot Swapable USB3 connection..  Yes you could.  or even two..

Think of the X-Dock as the key to your car.  Insert key then start the car.

 

 

 

FACTOID:  The X-DOCK can be used as a Security feature if you make this dock your OS Main Drive.  Then you would have to insert the drive into the X-Dock to power up your machine.  Great Locking Feature.

Ummmm you are terribly wrong here. Set your motherboard SATA connection to ACHI and then install Windows (important do not attempt to change to ACHI after, it screws stuff up). Then you have hot swap. I use it all the time so unless you're telling me that I'm dreaming when I hot swap.....

Edit: Also works with RAID mode (just don't attempt to swap RAID member disks) btw

To fully answer your question, yes IF your SATA mode is set to ACHI or RAID. If it is set to IDE, then no. The whole purpose of the X-dock would be to easily insert a laptop drive (say of a computer your working on) without the inconvenience of your system going down.

I am not telling you that you are dreaming.  I was telling you that Sata was not hot Swappable.  I had no Idea that ACHI Made that feature possible..  I stand corrected twice..  Thanks Sir for the help..  Remember..  that we are a brotherhood.  I know that OCN can be a kennel sometimes with lots of mean dogs..  But we are not that brand of Mut.

 

I am updating this INFO in the Page one..  Thanks for letting us know..  Great Comment.
