How to change HDD drive size

Postby PhK » Thu Feb 08, 2018 22:43

Hello,
On my Celsius R920, the 4 connectors for HDD drives are all horizontally set, so I can so far use only 4 2.5' HDD. I would like to use 2 2.5' and 2 3.5' HDD. So I need to turn 2 of them and set them vertically. The way to do it is theorically explained in the user manual, pages 54-56. I have to disengage connectors and move them to the new position.
My problem is that I don't manage to do it : I cannot remove cables from those connectors, and cannot find how to open the locking lugs.

Any help would really be welcome.

It would be so simple if there was a place with video tutorials....

Thanks

Philippe

Hello

Perhaps my question was not clear. I am adding a picture. The question is : how can I open the tugs (in black) to move the HDD ?

Any help would be greaty appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hello PhK,

From past experience these connectors are tough to remove. I find the easiest way to remove them is by applying pressure from where the HDD would plug in to try and force the connector out of the Backplane.

Hope this helps
