Help with multi 3.5 internal HDD setup for docking station

#1 Post by mercury168 » Sat Mar 28, 2020 1:03 am

Hi there,

I have a T450 and a dock which i believe is a 40A20170US (https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Thinkpad- ... B00EY55R00). I have three internal 3.5 HDDs that i would like to hook up to it. Is there a way i can do that by using my standard PC case and psu which is currently housing the 3 HDDs? or do I need a special case or dock for it? I prefer to use my existing case and PSU if thats possible. Hope you can help me out. Thanks in advance. Cheers!

Maybe get a NAS case to put them all in?
As described e.g. here: https://www.colourmylearning.com/2015/1 ... rd-drives/
