This might seem like a simple question, but what type of cable do I need to connect it? I assume it just needs a sata and a separate for power? Amazon is recommending that I buy this:

But I'm not clear how this cable works, does it replace the power cable? Also not sure if it would be long enough.

I've got the Panasonic UJ265 and also use the CP10 adapter by SilverStone. I would suggest the CP10 because it seems like it's made for these models (fits in perfectly: see IMG). The negative side of it is the higher price which is worth it for the quality and that it connects via 4-pin molex which means an additional PSU cable that needs space.

In reviewing hundreds of threads in this forum discussing slot load optical drives, it would appear the "majority" of users who elected to install a Blu-Ray drive went with the UJ265. (FYI: The UJ265 is the same drive included in Silverstones SOB02 Blu-Ray Slot Loading bundle offering.) Both the UJ167 & UJ265 are slot load players and will work. The main difference appears to be the UJ265 has a bezel with an eject button whereas the UJ167 comes with no bezel and has no eject button, thus requiring a software command to "eject" the disc. I'm not sure how users incorporate the UJ265 bezel and eject button because photos of the Silverstone cases do not show the cases as having removable bezels around the slot. Hopefully someone here can explain. Is the UJ265 installed as is... do the cases have a removable bezels... or do you have to remove the bezel from the drive before installation? (in which case the UJ167 would seem to make more sense) Yes / No?

As far as the cable, I can't say there's been a definite "majority favorite". This might be a result of these threads are coming in from around the world, with access to different vendors, cable configurations, etc. I'll admit the Silverstone CP10 is probably the higher "quality" solution.



but in the end... I selected the same cable as mong00se.

Running the fans at 800 RPM (inaudible)

At stock clocks:

idle: ~40C
Load (furmark): ~73C

Overclocked (1155/1600/maxed voltage/power):

idle:~40C
Load (furmark): ~83 C

Video card fans get up to around 80 percent under load, off at idle.

UJ265 is a 12,7mm Blu Ray Burner and UJ 167 is a 9,5mm DVD burner/Blu Ray player. That's the main difference.
You don't have access to the eject button on ML07/RVZ01/FTZ01 so you have to eject the disk with software. RVZ07 has a removable tray so it is possible for this model.

CP10 seems to be the best cable choice. I wish i knew its existence before.

Thank you all for the help. As I don't need blu-ray burning capabilities I'm opting for the UJ167. I think I will indeed pick up the CP10. To me the biggest downside is that I'll need to cram in another PSU cable, but hopefully it will fit fine.

I haven't cracked my case open in a couple months. Is the blu ray drive installed on the same frame that holds the GPU? Thats what it looks like from the picture posted above but just want to confirm.

Yes... the optical drive gets mounted on the same frame member as the GPU... just on the opposite side. This pic should make it easier to visualize.

Very helpful thank you! I've put in the order on amazon for the uj 167 and the cp10 cable. Should be here Thursday.

Beware, UJ167 is 9,5mm tall. I don't know if it can be installed properly inside.

Ok, well hope it works. If not, I can just have Amazon exchange it.
