So i didn't double check how many pins the power plugs are next to the sata port but i think there is a 2 pin and a 3 pin, is there anything extra i must know about the power adapters to power a 2.5" sata or hdd in these mini pc's?



those are what im thinking about getting.

the combo cable that has good reviews here - Amazon link Has a 5 pin connector for power. I have not owned a NUC, so I have no practical experience with them.

the nuc sata power has 2 pins, so i guess i can use it for ssd or hdd and have no issues. i plan to test on some close to worthless drives before adding anything important.
