    Still using the 90, just removed it for the bench test so everything would lay flat.

    More assembley done, and some wiring. Customizing the power feed with solidered connections and marine grade shrink wrap. Ran into a slight problem. I don't think the power supply has a 5v+ rail, which means the 2.5 drive is not going to work, or a work around is done.

    Some sort of 12v to 5v voltage divider.

    That motherboard has an onboard SATA Power Connector, right next to the black SATA Port 0 connector, providing both the 12V and 5V needed for 2 hard drives. I don't know the current limits, but I would suspect at least enough for 2 notebook sized drives, as the included cable has 2 plugs on it.

    Great job so far
    and according to the user manual of the mobo (I got the same too) you can use the 5V from SATA power connector fo feed devices up to 2.5A

    2.5 A from 5 V rail
    0.5 A from 3.3 V rail

    Thanks for the heads up guys. Now where to get the adaptor cable that plugs into the mobo? I've got a ton of random sata cables and none look the part.
