Erazer X700 New SSD install



I purchased an SSD (Samsung 860 Evo 500gb) to add extra storage to my system; however, I stupidly did not check my system to see if it included extra SATA III cables or screws for mounting the drive when it arrives.  I cannot find anything in the support documentation, and while I know I could just pop it into the hot swap bays, the bays do not have screws and I have yet to purchase them (I'm assuming M3 screws, but then 5 or 6mm?). help out me in my idiocy, are there extra internal SATA III cables so I can just pop the SSD into one of the bays inside, or do I need to go hunting for either a mounting kit, some screws and/or some extra SATA III cables?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Erazer X700 New SSD install

Hi PGen98,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


I do not think there would be extra HDD cables and bracket aside from those intended for what is ordered with the system as I tried to check on the Erazer x700 we have. This may also be regionally different so you may have to physically inspect it in yours.


Here is the hardware manual that you can check (page 26-27) and likewise using your serial number here in parts lookup can verify quantity of HDD cables and bracket (as built in) that you can use. 


You may need similar part as this:

PN 90201605 X700 Hot-swappable HDD Cable



PN 90201612 X700 HDD Bracket

Screws may be measured by what you currently have on the original drive for the same match.


I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.

Re: Erazer X700 New SSD install

Thank you, Spidey, I will review the parts lists and look for the appropriate cables.  It does look like the bays have the brackets in place already, but no extra cables, so I had some M3 5mm screws and just put the SSD into one of the hot swap bays.  That works for now, but I would eventually like to get it interally installed, so will invest in the appropriate hardware.


Thanks for your help!
