PC cabling questions
Not sure if it'll make any difference really in terms of air flow & cooling but at the moment my cabling is pretty crap. A lot of it is bunched up up front on show rather than tucked at the back of the PC tower out of sight. Some of it is but not much - so I was considering sorting that.
At the moment I have 4 hard drives, all with their own sata power connector going in to its own individual sata power connector from the PSU. If i'm using incorrect terms here then correct me now.
I don't really know what I'm looking for but something like this is on the track.It's whether that'd connect to all the drives plus the PSU. Not sure if it's the right product, whether it has all the connector types required.
So question is would something like this be ok? - ONE cable that connects all the drives and connects to ONE power connector from the PSU (in place of 4 cables connecting to 4 drives connecting to 4 power connectors from PSU)?
I have this Akasa card reader.
Now it's a bit dated (couple USB3s but many USB2s), plus I only use it really for reading SD cards - of which I have an Anker USB-C card reader.
This however requires a USB-C port, obviously, and I actually have none on this PC.
What's the best/cheapest (understand that may give me 2 different answers) way to get at least 1 USB-C port in to my PC?
I bought this card reader a long time ago & looking at the beefy USB3 cable running from it, I think that's why I bought the card that plugs in to my motherboard - as I see no connector on the motherboard that takes this cable running from the card reader. I did try look up what this card is (because I can't remember) but don't see it in the usual places I buy computer parts from (Ebuyer / Scan) so I'm not sure. On it is a USB3 connector for the cable running from the card reader & what looks like a power connector.
