couple of questions

05 Jul 2020, 21:07

How exactly can you tell what revision my Saturn is? (without completely taking it apart at least not yet until my MODE arrives)

If this helps
Model MK-80000A
CD Rom: JVC EMW10589-003 21 Pin
Power Supply Model s-7194

I plan on using a San Disk 1tb SSD, will I need use the external power supply option for this? I am somewhat VERY confused on this issue.

Thanx

If it’s 21pin that’s all you need to know. Should have th e 21pin ribbon cable and a single 5 pin connector in the lower left. Because it is 21pin you may need to use the supplemental 2pin power cable.

May? That's the question. Regardless if I don't need the extra power is it still safe to run the two wires off the PSU? And yes it is a 5 pin PSU.

Installing the optional 2 pin harness will never be a bad idea. As long as it is connected to the correct pins on the PSU. It's just providing direct power. It's something I personally would recommend everyone do as it won't cause any issues. Whether or not it is absolutely needed for your system is entirely dependent on the motherboard you have.
