help with installing a sata drive
« on: 16-July-17, 02:45:58 »

Where do i find out what mother board i have. Bought an MSI Nightblade 3 last week and want to install a sata ssd drive. Both sata power spots are used. looking to find another power to use for drive. Where do i find this info? its not listed under any specs i have found. I don't want to pull the machince apart to find a code on the board.


why do I have to write a novel to ask a question. I see MSI doesn't want anyone to get help. blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

no idea what the board is as its probably a custom design one from the look of it! as its a B250 Mini-ITX board and nothing i can see even looks similar so has to be a custom board made only for that computer!

if you want more details you would have to contact MSI directly and ask them! >>How to contact MSI.<<

also i moved your topic as it was in the wrong place and is why you had a Need for more text as it was in a review area!

posting in the wrong area happens! i thought you wanted to post here but you had wandered into the review sub boards and posted there!

anyway as its a custom board more then likely then you will need MSI's AIO departments help for information as i cant find any information what it is!

If I where you I'll bring my desktop and let the experts install the SATA drive for you, this is because if you know how to handle a computer, this should not have been a problem, you might do something that may damage your computer. Better yet, try to bring it from the shop which you bought it, and buy the needed Hard disk from them too.
