How to Connect SSD to Motherboard?

First, you’ll need to open up your computer and locate the SATA ports on your motherboard. There should be at least two of them, and they will be labeled accordingly.

Next, you’ll need to remove the cover from your SSD and attach the appropriate cables. Most SSDs come with two SATA cables – one for data and one for power.

If your motherboard has a black connector, use the black cable; if it has a connector, use the white one. (The cables may come detached from your SSD, so you may need to attach them.)

You’ll also want to make sure the SSD is connected to power. If there is a large power connector on your SSD, plug that into the matching plug on the motherboard.

If not, you should still be able to find a smaller connection that will do the trick – it should be labeled with something like “SATA Power” and connect to any free SATA port on your motherboard.
