Hey! so thinking of buying a second harddrive.
Just a simple Seagate Barracuda. (Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5'' HDD
SATA 6.0Gb/s, 7200RPM, 64MB cache, 3.5'')
So my question is do i need a 6gb sata kabel for it? I belive I have a 6 slot left on my board.
Different cables carry different data and different speeds. The cable is important as there is no standard information about the amount of data supplied. As with sata cables the same problems are apparent with HDMI cables.
Hi rdave, I guess we will differ, especially on HDMI cables. The ridiculous prices that some companies charge for them is a disgrace and a con. A digital signal is either there or not unlike analogue signals which can be degraded by poor cables.
As I said I have used normal SATA 2 cables on SATA 3 SSDs without any problem. Much more important is using a good quality cable with locking plugs as the major problem with SATA cables is the fragility of the plugs themselves
